Giancarlo Esposito

Giancarlo Esposito was born in Denmark where his parents were working at the time, but after several more years of traveling they settled in Manhattan by the time he was six and that's where he grew up.Coming from a theatrical background (his mother was a singer and his father a carpenter and stagehand) it was, perhaps, inevitable that young Giancarlo would appear on stage sooner or later, and he did, at age 8, appearing on Broadway as a slave child in "Maggie Flynn" in 1966.More Broadway work followed through the '60s and early-'70s, followed by some small roles in movies. TV work followed in the 1980s with increasingly significant parts in a string of high profile series until he became well established as a character player both on TV and in a number of movies.He came very much to the public's attention playing Agent Mike Giardello in the TV series Homicide: Life on the Street (1993) in 1998 and since then has rarely been off our screens.
