Great news: Alicia will join the series “Shameless” as a recurring cast member in season 7. According to Deadline, Alicia “will play Sue, a blue collar, no-nonsense woman who works with Ian Monaghan as the supervisor of a group of EMTs.”
Season 7 of Shameless premieres at 9 o’clock on Sunday, October 2nd.
Alicia joined the cast of The Young and the Restless, as Dr. Meredith Gates. Her first ep. will be tomorrow’s (April 13th) episode! 🙂
“The Young and the Restless just snagged a Coppola to play a doctor.
No, she’s not from that family. But Alicia Coppola is from the CBS family: she appeared on several seasons of NCIS: Los Angeles and now she’s joining the daytime drama as Dr. Meredith Gates.
She’ll show up in Genoa City on April 13.
“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,” Coppola told Soap Opera Digest, which first reported the news. “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.”
The Young and the Restless airs weekdays on CBS.”
Heads up: Alicia will be in tonight’s NCIS: Los Angeles episode “The Seventh Child”

If you’re not sure what to watch today – Alicia posted on Facebook an hour ago:
“I have the great good fortune of being in tonight’s episode of Code Black “The Son Rises.” CBS 10pm.
Please tune in. It’s a really special hour of TV…”
Here’s an interview with Alicia about raising gifted children:
The NY Gifted Education Examiner spoke with Ms. Coppola about her experience raising extraordinary children, and her hopes for the future of gifted education in America.
NYGEE: When and how did you realize that your children were gifted? How did you feel about it? Have your feelings on the subject changed or evolved over the years?
AC: Mila is our first child. (My husband) Anthony is the youngest of six siblings, and had experience with the babies and children of his older siblings. I did not.
Mila spoke at 8 months, knew her alphabet and had perfect letter recognition by 12 months, had the verbal skills of an adult by two and at three years old she was reading "The Atlas Of The Human Body" in my doctor’s office, telling him why she wanted to be an orthopedic surgeon instead of a neurosurgeon. At this point we knew she was a bit different than other children.
Please continue here (part 1) and here (part 2).
Alicia Coppola, Brianna Brown and Leonard Earl Howze have booked series regular roles in ABC Family drama pilot Stay.
Described as an edge-of-your-seat thriller, Stay centers on a recently widowed police detective and his two daughters who are stranded at a foreboding hotel during a storm and must unravel the hotel’s mysteries to escape.
Coppola, repped by APA and manager Leslie Allan-Rice, plays Alison, Jake’s mother and the wife of the conservative, emotionally withdrawn Frank, whom she fears. A steady diet of antidepressants help block out her crumbling marriage and keeps her sane.
Happy Birthday, Alicia! Much love from all your fans! Happy birthday! 🙂
It seems that CBS wants to celebrate Alicia’s birthday, too 😉 by showing her new NCIS: Los Angeles episode, 6×20 “Rage”, on Monday, April 13 (9:59-11:00 PM, ET/PT
