What Were They THINNKING?

GEN­ERAL HOS­PI­TAL’s Lisa LoCicero re­vis­its some of Olivia’s most mem­o­rable mo­ments

ABC Soaps In Depth - - Special -

Whether her al­ter ego’s telling it like it is, hook­ing up with a mob­ster or get­ting ar­rested for sex­u­ally ha­rass­ing a fire­man, GEN­ERAL HOS­PI­TAL’s Lisa LoCicero has a blast with Olivia’s an­tics. When Soaps In Depth asked the ac­tress to rem­i­nisce about some of her wildest, most ro­man­tic and fun­ni­est scenes, she had a grand old time re­liv­ing the mo­ments. On top of it all, she notes, “There’s been a lot of dif­fer­ent ver­sions of Olivia over the last 10 years — and a whole lot of dif­fer­ent hair col­ors!”

“Scott Reeves (ex-Steven) and I laughed so hard, be­cause we were to­gether for so long be­fore we fi­nally got it on,” LoCicero re­calls. “I think this was the first time, and in soap op­eras, it’s usu­ally right away, but we’d been to­gether for like a year and a half! What were we, Amish?”

“That was a re­ally fun day, and at that point, I was cry­ing,” LoCicero re­calls of Olivia and Ned’s wed­ding. “They were like, ‘Dial back the tears. This is sup­posed to be a happy mo­ment.’ But they were happy tears! Wed­dings make me cry — par­tic­u­larly my own. And be­ing a life­long GH fan, it felt mo­men­tous for me as both the char­ac­ter and a hu­man be­ing. So we had to shoot it again… and I had to hold back the emo­tion.”

“That was what it was,” LoCicero says of Olivia’s Nurses Ball per­for­mance with Max. “I’m sure a lot of GH fans got the ref­er­ence to Johnny Car­son’s Carnac The Mag­nif­i­cent… and a lot of them did not. Play­ing off the ‘Olivia’s a psy­chic’ thing, it was very clever to pull that out of his­tory. I don’t know how funny it was, but we did our best to make those jokes land and make it amus­ing. We had fun that day, that’s for sure.”
