Life and career[edit]

Mauceri was born in Brooklyn, New York. She played Angie Perrini Frame on Another World in 1977. She has had small roles in films such as Saving Grace and Die Hard with a Vengeance, and appeared in television shows such as Law & Order and The Sopranos.

Mauceri portrayed Carlotta Vega on the ABC soap opera, One Life to Live from 1995 until March 25, 2009.[1][2] She was reportedly replaced in the role after voicing personal religious objections to a planned storyline in which Carlotta would be supportive of a gay relationship.[3][4][5]

A short documentary about Mauceri was filmed by Olive Tree Pictures. In 2017 she portrayed Jenny Sanchez in the faith-based movie Courageous Love.[6]
