‘General Hospital’ (GH) spoilers find that star Lisa LoCicero (Olivia Falconeri) has definitely been seeing a lot of screen time lately, and that is certainly a good thing. The actress recently opened up about how much she’s been enjoying seeing Olivia in front of the cameras and now more than ever before. Here’s what she has to say.
‘General Hospital’ Spoilers: Lisa LoCicero Opens Up About Olivia In The Spotlight
Speaking to Soap Opera Digest in a new interview, the beautiful brunette offered, “It’s been great. I mean, it couldn’t have come at a better time. Escapism from real life right now is just a very rare treat, to be able to go to work and go into this other world. I love it in the best of times, but to have this really fantastic storyline that the writers have put together right now has been wonderful. At first, it was a little bit nerve-wracking to rev up those muscles to 100 from zero, because we’d all been out of work for such a long time [during the production shutdown]. You really go, like, ‘Wow, this is hard!’ People say, ‘How do you memorize all those lines?’ And then you get one of those fat, two-or-three-episodes- in-one-day scripts and you’re like, ‘Jeez, they’re right! How do I memorize this all? I’m not really sure how I did this!’ So, that was an interesting challenge, but I’ve enjoyed every minute of it. And I’ll take more!”
Olivia also admits that there’s been a lot more “meaty material” for her to play with Wally Kurth (Ned Quartermaine) and Jane Ellot (Tracy). She explained, “I have been so blessed with my scene partners on this show and watching Wally play — because I know what he’s playing is intense guilt — is like, ‘Wow, he’s really good at that!’ Playing drama between Ned and Olivia is great because we do spend so much time being happy and lovely and being the talk-tos for other characters, always having the right answers to things — which is great, and is also very important on the canvas. But you do have to shake things up a little bit, and he’s such a great person to shake things up with because he has a great ability for pathos and emotional availability. It really has been great and I’m sure there is more of that coming up. I think they’ve written the conflict between them very realistically, when Olivia was feeling, ‘You haven’t been there for me.’”
