When GENERAL HOSPITAL’s Josh Swickard (Chase) signed on to do the movie Roped, he knew he’d have to pick up some rodeo skills. But he wasn’t expecting to fall for his leading lady, Lorynn York, let alone fall for her so fast. “I never believed people when they said, ‘When you know, you know,’” he admitted to Soaps In Depth. “And then I met Lorynn — and when you know, you know! I called my dad early on and said, ‘She’s the one.’ And his advice was, ‘Know a girl in every season,’ so I waited a full year. It actually has been about a year and a half… and she’s still the one!”
While York is clearly a knockout, it’s her energy that drew in Swickard. “She’s very fun,” he grinned. “We laugh all the time. And she’s also very adaptable. We’ve traveled a lot together and been put in a lot of interesting situations, and she always takes it in stride and does it with a good attitude. We also view life on the same plane. We have the same ideals, values, and goals.”
That’s why Swickard popped the question over the holidays. “We were skiing in Beaver Creek with our families,” he set up. “Her family has a tradition of playing charades, so I proposed during a game. After I acted it out, I said, ‘Well… this was not a charade.’ It was super cheesy, hokey, and fun! They were all in on it, but we did a good job of keeping her out of the loop. She had no idea it was coming, so that made it all the better!”
It’s a super-cute story they’ll be able to tell their kids… and then their grandkids! All the best to the happy couple for a lifetime of happiness together!
