If New York City detective Alex Chavez wants answers, he's going to get them, according to Ignacio Serricchio, who plays the role beginning Friday, December 7.
"He has very dry humor, is very sarcastic, and is also direct and to the point," Ignacio said. "He wants information and he's going to get it. He reads people, knows when they're lying and enjoys watching them try to make things up."
Daytime fans may remember the Argentina-born Ignacio as General Hospital's Diego. He reports that his mother is thrilled he's not playing a bad guy this time around (at least so far) and that he's excited to be working with Executive Producer Jill Farren Phelps again.
"Jill gave me my first big job, really started my career," Ignacio said. When she approached Ignacio about playing Alex, he reacted with, "I would do anything for you!" Ignacio credited Jill's ability to create a fun environment for his enthusiasm. "Jill knows me very well. I'm all about having fun and being creative. There's nothing else that interests me. We understand each other."
Ignacio, who has had guest roles on a number of primetime shows since leaving GH, is happy to be back on daytime. "[Daytime] challenges you; you have to be on your toes. You take notes and apply them immediately. It's the closest thing to theatre in the TV/film world and I love theatre."Sony
