In The Beginning
LoCicero was born on April 18 in Grosse Pointe, Michigan. She grew up in a very pro-art household, so she was encouraged at a young age to pursue singing, dancing, and acting. While she initially wanted to be a ballerina, she realized when she was about 13 that she really loved acting and wanted to continue to pursue it.
Small Screen To Silver Screen
After landing a few roles on various television shows in the ‘90s, including Loving (and The City), Law & Order, and NYPD Blue, LoCicero got two movie roles. She appeared in the 2000 comedy The Family Man and then went on to be a part of Rush Hour 2, which was released the following year.
Holding Out For Better
In 2004, LoCicero was offered the role of a recurring character on One Life to Live, but she ended up turning it down because she didn’t want to move back to New York City. However, the producers came back to her and offered her the contract role of Sonia Toledo Santi, which she did end up accepting.
LoCicero has been in love with movies and television since she was a young girl, but her obsession with the movie Gone With the Wind may shock you. Not only does she love this movie a lot, but she’s actually seen it a whopping 300 times!
