            HAWTHORNE—Pete Davida, an ex con and murder suspect on next Tuesday

 

night’s episode of NYPD Blue, might look familiar to residents.  The part is being played

 

by Fulvio Cecere, of the Hawthorne High School Class of 1978.

 

            Though Cecere currently resides in Canada, he still maintains close ties to the

 

borough, where his parents call Diamond Bridge Avenue home.

 

            “My roots run deep in Hawthorne,” he said.  “I visit as often as I can.  Many of

 

my friends still live in the area.”

 

Cecere caught the acting bug at age 23 and has since held roles

 

in dozens of TV shows and movies.  He said he was thrilled to

 

get the role on NYPD Blue.

 

            “Knowing that you are on the set of one of the most

 

successful and respected shows is inspiring.  It validates what I

demanding so it’s great that they thought highly enough of me to have me on the show.”

 

            “The director, John Hyams, was great to work with as well as co-stars Charlotte

 

Ross (Det. Connie McDowell) and Jacqueline Obradors (Det. Rita Ortiz),”  Cecere

 

added.  “the whole experience was memorable.”

 

            The episode, titled “Off The Wall”, is scheduled to run on April 8 at 9 p.m. on

 

Channel 7.
