Daytime soap fans loved her as Lorna on Another World, and since depating Bay City in 1994, Alicia Coppola has been appearing in numerous films, primetime television, and stage roles. But now Soap Opera Digest has learned that Alicia is coming back to the world of daytime drama!
Alicia has joined the cast of The Young as the Restless as a doctor named Meredith Gates. She is set to make her on-screen debut on the upcoming April 13th episode of the CBS series.
After reading ten-pages of material on her character, Coppola told SOD: : “I haven’t really read something like that in a long time, something that was so dynamic and interesting that I automatically saw a backstory. She reminds me of Lorna. She feels things very deeply, and I just think there’s a lot more going on than what’s on the surface. I like that.”
