A new year, a new opportunity! GENERAL HOSPITAL star Lisa LoCicero (Olivia) had some exciting news to announce about her acting career, and she did it — where else? — on social media! In a post made on Instagram, the GH star revealed that she is currently in Montana working on a movie!
In making her announcement, LoCicero posted a selfie of her all bundled up in a red knit hat, beige scarf, winter parka, and sunglasses, with a beautiful clear blue sky, a majestic mountain, and a pair of horses behind her. “Shooting a film in Montana,” the soap veteran wrote. “As cold as it is beautiful!”
Unfortunately, LoCicero did not divulge any details about the film that she is working on in the Big Sky Country. But GH fans probably don’t need to worry that the new project will take her away from Port Charles — or the important storyline the soap recently launched with Olivia and Ned’s son, Leo, being diagnosed with autism. In fact, the soap is rather supportive when its cast members want to dabble in other projects, like when Josh Swickard (Chase) filmed the A California Christmas movies for Netflix with his wife, Lauren.
Since joining the GH cast in 2008 as Sonny’s teenage sweetheart, LoCicero herself has worked on several other films and television shows. while continuing to play in Port Charles. She guest-starred in a 2010 episode of BONES, on CHUCK and RIZZOLI & ISLES in 2011, on NCIS in 2019, and appeared in several short films. LoCicero also starred in the upcoming indie film Unto Others, which is currently in post-production
As for the film that has her on location in Montana, LoCicero noted in her hashtags that she was “grateful” for the opportunity as a middle-aged actress. “It’s such a gift to spend some time out of your usual routine,” she concluded. “New challenges, new delights, new people… one of my favorite parts of being an actor.”
