Ronnie Marmo Looks Back at His First Episode of GENERAL HOSPITAL

Time sure flies when you’re having fun! Actor Ronnie Marmo shared some screenshots of his very first episode as Ronnie on GENERAL HOSPITAL as he celebrated the 14th anniversary of his debut on the ABC soap on July 10.

“14 years ago today I debuted on GH as Detective Ronnie Dimestico,” the actor wrote. “What a wonderful experience and I made life-long friends! Including one of my best pals, Dom Zamprogna (Dante), and the third slice of the Come Se Dici crew, Lisa LoCicero (Olivia)!”

Although Marmo hasn’t appeared on GH in over a decade, the soap and its fans still hold a special place in his heart. “GH fans are the best in the world!” he enthused. “Truly! They still come out and support me in all my projects around the world! Amazing people! Thank you for that! Onward, indeed…”

GH Ronnie Dante screengrabs

Marmo started his show biz career with an uncredited performance as “Neighborhood Kid” in the 1993 movie A Bronx Tale. He went on to appear in movies like Deuces Wild, The Third Wish, and West of Brooklyn before joining the cast of GH in 2009.

Ronnie came to Port Charles along with Dante to infiltrate and investigate the Zacchara and Corinthos crime families. As they worked undercover, Ronnie worried that Dante was getting too close to Sonny, not realizing that they were father and son! Eventually, both detectives transferred from the NYPD to the PCPD and continued working as partners. 

Unfortunately, Ronnie’s disdain for Dante’s tolerance of Sonny’s crimes started him down a slippery slope as he became determined to do whatever it took to bring Sonny down. Ronnie’s story came to a tragic end as he was revealed to be the one attacking dancers in Port Charles and after kidnapping Lulu and Sam, was shot and killed by Detective John McBain during a standoff.

After exiting GH in 2012, Marmo continued to work in film and television as well as on stage, even serving as the artistic director of Theatre 68 in Los Angeles and New York City. He is also well-known for his critically-acclaimed performance in the one-man show I’m Not a Comedian… I’m Lenny Bruce, which he also wrote. And who knows what’s next for the talented performer?
