Given that LoCiCero’s character was only supposed to appear for a few The Bold and the Beautiful episodes, the actor was grateful for the extended time he had in the soap opera. “When Vinny got the job in the hospital lab, I thought that was really interesting,” he said.
“I loved it. It was the most soapy twist ever. The material got more and more fun as it went along. Since most of my scenes had been with Matt, it was great to have Tanner [Novlan, Finn] there and establish a new relationship to play for Vinny,” he continued.
“That confrontation scene between the three of them was cool, especially since Vinny felt so betrayed by Thomas, the best friend he thought he was trying to help,” explained.
