1. She Never Expected To Play Nina For So Long

The soap opera world can be very unpredictable. Some characters, like Nina, can come and go for shows on decades while others can appear in just a few episodes and never been seen or heard from again. When Tricia was cast as Nina, she had no idea the opportunity would last as long as it has.

5. She Has Been Married Twice

Maintaining a relationship is hard enough as it is, and being in the entertainment industry only makes things more complicated. Tricia has been married to Jack Allocco from 1989 to 2000. She married Bat McGrath the same year and took a break from acting shortly after. The couple parted ways in 2019.

The two remained close until Jeanne’s death in 2013.

8. She Is A Private Person

Even after spending decades in the spotlight, Tricia has never gotten caught up in the oversharing that has become so common in celebrity culture. She enjoys her privacy and isn’t someone who shared much personal information with the public. In fact, Tricia doesn’t even conduct many interviews. With all of the things that celebrities have to deal with, it’s easy to see why she would prefer to keep a low profile.

The small screen isn’t the only place where Tricia has gotten to let her talents shine. Over the years, she’s also had a couple of movie roles. She made her first big screen appearance in 1980 with a role in the movie The Ghosts of Buxley Hall. Her most recent film role was in the 2009 movie Old Habits Die Hard. There’s no word on whether or not she plans to return to the big screen.
