Alicia Leigh Willis
One of four children, Willis was raised in Atlanta before later moving with her family to California.
Willis' first foray into acting came opposite a truly animated character -- Kellogg's Tony the Tiger. A year or so later, Willis was booked on an episode of 7th Heaven. By the age of 18, Willis was working as a waitress -- the self-proclaimed "worst waitress" -- while attending acting school.
In 1999, Willis landed her first soap opera gig, the role of Alli on Another World. Two years later, Willis landed the role of Courtney Matthews on General Hospital.
In her spare time, Willis enjoys skiing, soccer, surfing and kickboxing.
