Victor Alfieri is debuting this week on All My Children in the role of a photographer named Ciro. Alfieri no stranger to daytime fans from his role on B&B and DAYS, chatted with We Love Soaps to give fans a sneek peak as to what is behind this mysterious new character and how will it affect the lives of the women of Pine Valley!
Victor Alfieri on this role of Ciro: “He lives in his own world. He doesn’t follow any rules, he doesn’t respect anybody, but in a good way. He’s a very famous photographer. He thinks he is The Man and that people should just go to him. It’s funny to play because he’s a little cocky, but I’m playing him likable. He will make you laugh. He’s fun to play, and I think he’s fun to watch. He provides that comedic relief that every soap needs. So I read the material, I called my agent and manager said, “Yes, I want to do this, this is crazy, this is fun.” It happened very quickly. I accepted the first week in March, and started working March 10th. I met with the producer and the casting director, and both ladies are super nice. I felt right at home. I felt good inside. Like, “Wow this is a good family.” I showed up on set and all these ladies were so beautiful. I figured, “I’m going to stay here awhile.”
Victor Alfieri on which of the ladies of fusion or women in Pine Valley that Ciro will take a liking to: “I shot a lot of episodes with the character of Natalia, Shannon Kane. I don’t know where they are going with that, but it’s obvious Ciro has a thing for her. She is beautiful. Sometimes I become speechless. Like, “My God.” They are all beautiful. On the first day I was working with the character of Randi, played by Denise Vasi. She has those beautiful eyes and that complexion. I asked her, “Are those real?” And she said, “What? The eyes?” Yes, they are so blue, so beautiful. Also the girl who plays Amanda is so beautiful. I feel like I’m in the candy store. I’m very happy. There is beauty on the outside, but they are very beautiful on the inside. I have to say, with all honesty, they are really nice people. I got to know the girl that plays Madison [Stephanie Gatschet]. We have all hung out already. And with J.R., who plays Brock, we’ve gone to dinner a couple of times already, and it’s like wow, I’ve never done this before on other soaps. They are very nice nice people.”
