After leaving ‘AW’ in 1994, Coppola has added several other projects to resume including stints on ‘Sons of Anarchy’ and ‘NCIS: Los Angeles.’ Now, Alicia Coppola is thrilled to be a new cast member on ‘The Young and the Restless’ and spoke about the role as Meredith Gates with Soap Opera Digest. “They explained a little bit about it and who I would be working with and sent me some material,” Alicia revealed during her interview.

“In those 10 pages that I read, it was a really fully fleshed-out female character. 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,” Alicia admitted, thinking back on her days on ‘Another World.’ “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,” Alicia added with appreciation.
