Lorenzo Alcazar was a twin on GENERAL HOSPITAL, so it’s understandable if people get him confused with his brother. Or if newer viewers don’t even remember the guy at all! After portraying Luis Alcazar in 2002, actor Ted King rejoined the cast of GH in the role of Lorenzo Alcazar in 2003 and remained until the guy met a violent end in 2007 (except for a brief time in 2006 when the role was temporarily played by Jay Pickett).
Lorenzo Alcazar arrived in Port Charles to avenge the death of his twin brother, Luis. Learning that Alexis Davis was the one responsible, the mob boss chose not to take revenge as she is just a civilian. Knowing his brother was in town due to resident mobster Sonny Corinthos, Lorenzo began making things difficult for him, enlisting Ric Lansing to help take him down. After Ric kidnapped Sonny’s wife, Carly Corinthos, Lorenzo helped conceal her and then took her hostage himself, falling in love with her in the process.
After Carly was shot in the head, she went into a coma where she dreamed of a life married to Lorenzo so when she awoke, she found herself having feelings for the guy. This caused such a strain on her marriage that she and Sonny eventually divorced, leaving Carly free to marry Lorenzo. However, her connection to Sonny was too strong, and the marriage quickly failed. Lorenzo had been put in charge of raising his niece, Sage Alcazar, and later learned he had a son, Diego Alcazar. As he tried to be a part of his son’s life, Lorenzo also struck up a romance with Skye Chandler Quartermaine and she became pregnant.
Although Lorenzo attempted to keep his son from a life of crime by leaving the business himself, he eventually had to return to arms dealing in order to keep Diego from going to jail after Jason Morgan had him arrested. Despite Lorenzo’s attempts to protect his son, Diego was apparently killed by Sam McCall during a violent shootout between Alcazar’s men and Jason. Devastated, Lorenzo vowed that his newborn daughter, Lila Rae, would not suffer the same fate. However, after losing several shipments, Lorenzo tried to shoot Sonny, but instead, the mob boss got the drop on him, shooting Alcazar in the head.
After recovering, Lorenzo faked amnesia to get a leg up on his enemies, but Sonny and Skye sent Jason to kill him. Following the successful hit, Jason was arrested for murder, and Carly enlisted Jerry Jacks to fabricate evidence that Lorenzo is still alive to have Jason exonerated. But Lorenzo is dead and gone, just like his brother.
