Our Performer of the Week is General Hospital’s Lisa LoCicero!
Wow! Lisa shined this week as Olivia finally expressed to Ned the feelings that she has kept bottled up over the last few months. After Ned chose to put ELQ business over time with her once again, she let him know that she had felt abandoned. Sharing that she has been alone in her grief of missing Dante and that the one person that she should be able to turn to is her husband...but she feels like she can’t. While most dramas on soaps tend to lean towards the extreme this situation is about as relatable as you can get. And when Olivia cries...we all cry!
