Lisa LoCicero Joins GH As Olivia

On September 19th, according to the newest edition of the TV Guide, the role of Olivia will be played by daytime veteran, Lisa LoCicero. “Sonny has invited Olivia to the wedding, unbeknownst to Kate,” LoCicero says. “He doesn’t know there was quite a rivalry between the two women or that Olivia has something under her belt that’s going to create big excitement-and a lot of friction.”

GH’s Kate Howard has taken superstition to a whole new level over the past few weeks. As she and her groom Sonny Corinthos plan their wedding, things have been going for the fashion queen. A few drops of blood on her wedding dress kicked off her thoughts of a bad omen that has cursed the two of them. As the wedding approaches Sonny tries to re-assure his bride there is nothing to worry about. During a conversation, Kate reminisces about the old days and her time spent with her cousin Olivia. Sonny decides to bring Kate a little happiness by inviting her cousin, Olivia to the wedding, unbeknownst to Kate.

On September 19th, according to the newest edition of the TV Guide, the role of Olivia will be played by daytime veteran, Lisa LoCicero. “Sonny has invited Olivia to the wedding, unbeknownst to Kate,” LoCicero says. “He doesn’t know there was quite a rivalry between the two women or that Olivia has something under her belt that’s going to create big excitement-and a lot of friction.”

Olivia is coming back into Kate’s life with information that could lead to Kate’s downfall. According to TV Guide, Olivia’s past does not only include Kate, but Sonny as well. She and Sonny had a high school fling and Olivia is going to share some startling news about Kate’s “oh so secret” past.

In 2004, she had auditioned for General Hospital‘s Lois Cerullo, but wasn’t quite right for the part, so as a “consolation prize” she was offered the role of Sonia Toledo-Santi, on One Life to Live. Sonia, strip club owner/undercover federal agent was assigned to case of arresting a mysterious drug lord who was part of the Santi criminal organization. During the most trying time of Antonio Vega’s life, he and Sonia had sexual relations, and soon after he discovered, she was the adopted sister of his enemy/half brother Tico Santi. After Antonio killed Tico, a grieving and distraught Sonia left Llanview.

She also appeared as Jocelyn Roberts Brown on ABC’s Loving and The City, in 1995. Her credits also include numerous television series such as NYPD Blue (1998), Viper (1999), V.I.P. (1999), Star Trek: Voyager (2001), Joey (2005), Without A Trace (2007), and Reno 911(2007).
