The more than I see Dante Falconeri, the more I like him.
Ever since he stepped into Port Charles, I have liked the evolution of the character, who was first introduced as Dominic Pirelli – a member of the Zacchara mob.
We saw his soft side pretty much from the beginning, when he encountered Morgan and Carly in the woods – and let them go. If he was really a hard core mobster, it wouldn’t have ended that way.
I liked the way he fast-talked his way into Sonny’s organization – despite the fact that Sonny knew from the jump that Dominic was the one who confronted Morgan and Carly in the woods.
He’s a charmer, for sure.
But an honest and earnest one – and those are the qualities that I love most about the character.
Portrayer Dominic Zamprogna has endeared himself to fans with his sincere concern for people and those soulful eyes.
And then to find out that he’s Dante Falconeri, a cop, a good guy…..
And the kicker?
He’s the son of Olivia Falconeri (Lisa LoCicero) and mob kingpin Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) – the man he’s trying to take down.
Of course neither Dante nor Sonny know the truth.
Which has me wondering —– how and when will they each find out AND what will happen???
I must say, it’s intriguing.
But I’m soooo eager for the whole thing to play out and get the answers.
In the meantime, I’m lovin’ Dante and Lulu together.
Julie Berman as Lulu is playful and fun around Dante.
Lulu deserves someone who can make her smile – and he does.
And I love the fact they didn’t just jump into bed and, instead, the writers are taking the time to ease into their relationship.
And with Lulu, the daughter of famed supercouple Luke and Laura, and Dante, the son of the iconic Sonny……well, there’s no telling the potential of the longterm matchup of these two.
