This Halloween, the kids got to have a lot of fun on GENERAL HOSPITAL, including Leo, played by the talented young Easton Rocket Sweda. And he counts the Halloween show as a highlight of his work on the soap this year.
“My favorite episode to work on this year was the math-off with Lois,” Sweda told Star-Kidz. “It was a really cool game and we had fun. I got to wear an Albert Einstein costume which was cool but I didn’t like wearing the wig. I have sensory issues and it didn’t feel good on. The costume looked cool, though! I looked just like him!”
The young actor has been enjoying working with Rena Sofer (Lois) as well as Amanda Setton (Brook Lynn) and Josh Swickard (Chase). “She has a great personality and she’s really fun,” Sweda enthused of Sofer. “I love to talk with Amanda and give her hugs. She’s a really good actor. Chase is, too! I like to call him Chase Bank.”
As for what the future might hold for Ned and Olivia’s little boy, his portrayer certainly isn’t short of ideas. So if the writers need any suggestions, he’d be happy to help out! “I think Leo should learn piano because I’m learning it in real life,” Sweda declared. “Leo should become a scientist and make more potions like the Sicilian Thunderbolt. I also want Leo to have a bunch of pets and friends, just not a girlfriend.”
Well, we’ll just have to stay tuned to see what happens next!
