His other roles include Paul Hornsby in the ABC soap opera “General Hospital”, Ashland Locke in another soap opera, “The Young and the Restless”.

After he moved to LA, he landed a role on “Days of Our Lives” and made a guest appearance on “Chameleons”. 

In 2021, Burgi had been cast for the role of Ashland Locke in “The Young and the Restless”, however, he was fired only a few weeks ago for violating the COVID policy of the show.

Liliana has done some comprehensive work on making healthcare affordable to immigrants with no health insurance.
