Scotti, Antonio, 1866-1936, Italian operatic baritone. He made his American debut in Chicago in 1899. From 1899 to 1933 he was immensely popular at the Metropolitan Opera, both for his acting and for his vocal artistry. Among his outstanding roles were Iago in Otello; Scarpia, a role he created, in La Tosca; and Hans Sachs in Die Meistersinger.

Colleen Dion-Scotti (also credited as Colleen Dion) (born December 26, 1964 in Newburgh, New York) is an American actress. She is one of the more notable character actresses on soap operas.

Apart from the smaller roles that have characterized her career, she is most known for her portrayal of Felicia Forrester on The Bold and the Beautiful, a role she played from 1990 to 1992, in 1997, and returned from July to December 2004.


Dion-Scotti has appeared in a supporting capacity on several other soaps.

Bradley Bell asked Dion-Scotti to come back for a guest spot in the role of Felicia on B&B. One guest appearance led to another, and she was quickly integrated into the storyline, earning a place in the new opening credits even though her temporary contract ran out in late September 2004. She continued to work on the show even though her home is in New York City (B&B tapes in Los Angeles). Although she enjoyed being back on B&B the commute from one coast to another proved too difficult and she decided to exit the show in December 2004. The role of Felicia has been played by Lesli Kay since 2005.
