‘Chasing Life’ is anything but a ‘cancer show’. It’s a series about living life to the fullest, and that includes going after your heart…even if that means kissing someone other than your boyfriend. Click to WATCH a sneak peek preview of April flirting with Leo. (Spoiler alert: they smooch!)
April Carver (Italia Ricci) is dating office hottie Dominic (Richard Brancatisano), but on the July 15 Chasing Life episode, she kisses another guy! Yep, you guessed it — Leo (Scott Michael Foster). Read on to WATCH a sneak peek of the duo, plus read our EXCLUSIVE interview with the actor (he promises, Leo isn’t just a bad boy)!
‘Chasing Life’: April Kisses Leo — Watch
April has found love with boyfriend Dominic who still doesn’t know about her cancer diagnosis, but is a wonderful (and hot) support system in her complicated life, which is about to get more complicated with another crush headed her way.
In the July 15 episode, April and Leo talk about babies. No, not like that — well, kinda. Leo hits April with the hard news that she may never be able to have kids, just like him. Chemo treatment puts cancer patients at a risk for becoming infertile.
April is clearly devastated by this heartbreaking news, but Leo is certainly someone who understands. WATCH the sneak peek (above) to see the scene, and make sure to tune into the brand new episode (Tuesday, July 15, 9/8c, ABC Family) to see the two kiss!
Leo ‘Doesn’t Mean To Be The Bad Boy’
Even though Leo kisses April and she has a boyfriend, actor Scott Michael Foster promises that Leo “doesn’t mean to be the bad boy.”
“He definitely has a heart,” Scott tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “I think he does soften up, as the season continues, but at the same time, I think he is misunderstood and not really the bad boy. I can see why people would see that but I think he has so much on his plate that it may look different than it actually is, I think we will see exactly who Leo is, as the season continues and people will be happy with the turnout.”
The actor previously admitted to HollywoodLife.com that he and April “have something together,” but did not reveal if they’ll end up together. They clearly have a connection, but they both have a lot on their minds (not to mention that April is taken).
“He is a complex guy with some complex issues or situations he has gotten himself into, so I would say he has challenges to handle,” Scott tells us EXCLUSIVELY.
HollywoodLifers, do you think that Leo is the perfect guy for April, since they’re going through the same thing? Or does she belong with Dominic? Let us know which guy your rooting for, in the comments below!
