Biography

Film and television actor Remo Girone was born in the small country of Eritrea, on the Horn of Africa, but has built a solid career as a character actor in Italy. Girone made his film debut in the 1974 Italian drama "Roma rivuole Cesare", and left behind his university studies in business and economics to pursue his passion for performing. His gamble paid off in 1977 when "Il gabbiano" premiered. The film was an adaptation of Anton Chekhov's popular play "The Seagull" and was directed and adapted by heralded filmmaker Marco Bellocchio. Girone impressed Italian audiences with his leading man turn in the drama, and his star was on the rise as he appeared in a string of films through the 1980s. In 1987, he began earning international notice when he joined the cast of the ongoing Mafia drama "La piovra" in its third season. He picked up momentum with his role as the villainous Nameless in the fantasy-fueled miniseries "Fantaghirò 5", but he may be best known for his supporting turn in the 2002 English-language romance-infused crime drama "Heaven", which starred Australian actress Cate Blanchett and American actor Giovanni Ribisi. For his solid portrayal of Ribisi's onscreen father, Girone earned a Best Supporting Actor nomination from the German Film Awards, the first award notice he had garnered in his long career. Since then, Girone has continued to balance film and television, most often appearing in Italian productions.
