Speaking to Soap Opera Digest, Alicia opened up about how she felt returning to the daytime television world in 2011. She says that there were several people that brought her under their wing, including Maurice Benard (Sonny Corinthos) and Steve Burton (Jason Morgan). She said that both actors were always there when she needed help or struggled with a storyline. She said that they not only provided a great support system, but also helped develop her character and make Courtney the interesting character that she was.
Alicia puts it this way, “Steve was great to work with. I think the chemistry with Courtney and Jason, right off the bat, was really great. We had some great storylines, too, and they were so much fun to play. I was going through photos the other day and I found one from our wedding – or we may have had a few weddings, I can’t remember! There are times I see pictures of things that I don’t even remember filming!”
