Kids grow up so fast on soaps, but viewers have been enjoying watching Theo and Erik Olson playing Wiley on GENERAL HOSPITAL, and the twins’ parents have been sharing some super cute backstage pics on their social media, like a recent one of the boys with their fellow Port Charles child stars Ava and Grace Scarola, who play Avery. “The best thing about being a part of such an iconic show as GH is all the friendships we have made!” the caption read. “We don’t get to see everyone every time we work because it all depends on what scenes are being filmed, therefore when we do see our friends, its a party!”
The Olson twins began taking turns playing baby Wiley back in November of 2018, but the Scarola girls have been playing Avery since December of 2014. “We look up to the Scarola twins as our role models!” the boys declared. “They’ve been on the show since they were six months old so it gives us hope that maybe we can grow up on the show, too!
“Another fun fact is that our mom used to teach at their elementary school!” they continued. “Ava and Grace are bilingual in Italian and we are bilingual in French! They are the sweetest girls! It’s so fun having so many special connections. We love our GH family!”
Now that Michael has been reunited with his son, we hope we get to see Wiley spending a lot more time with his Aunt Avery! Someone schedule a playdate! And for more on your favorite GH stars, keep reading the ABC edition of Soaps In Depth magazine.
