Days of Our Lives Spoilers: Leo Howard Is Having A Hard Time Fitting In?

The daytime television industry certainly isn’t for the weak. Days of Our Lives newcomer Leo Howard, who is now playing Tate on the show, says that he has experienced a culture shock ever since he began working on the soap. And who can blame him, right? Keep reading below for everything you need to know.

Days of Our Lives Spoilers: Leo Howard Is Having A Hard Time Fitting In?

Even though Leo has been acting and doing commercial work since he was a young child, he says that he’s never experienced anything like what he’s seen so far on Days of Our Lives. And don’t worry, it’s not a bad thing at all. He put it this way, “I’ve spent a lot of time in my life on a set, but never have I been on a soap. It’s a very new experience. This was a culture shock for me. It took me about two weeks to really settle in and find my groove. It’s a pace that I’ve never experienced before, but I feel like it’s making me a better actor altogether.”

Leo says that playing the young teen has certainly been a different experience for him, too. He said, “It’s fun because I can give myself permission to be immature. As a teenager, everything is a little more serious. The stakes are a little higher. Things that are very small things as adults are very large because we don’t have any perspective as teenagers. We don’t know what it’s like to not be a teenager. And we have hormones pumping through our bodies that make us angsty and a little spicy. So that’s really fun for me to play.”

Leo also said that he’s doing his best to give the character the on-screen justice that it deserves. “All I can do is present my version of who this character is and, like I said, kind of leave it at the door. I try to do the best job I can do [and deliver] the most accurate portrayal. Obviously, it is kind of intimidating, because when people like a certain character, I’m the kind of new guy that people just want to hate. But I’m all right with that,” he added.

He looks too old for the role. Tate is still in high school.
