Biography

Italian-born triple threat Sergio Castellitto has earned honors as a writer, actor, and director. He started out in theater and made his film debut in 1981, appearing in the Italian musical drama "Carcerato." Castellitto received the rare honor of being nominated for David di Donatello Awards for two performances in 1990. His lead role in the romantic comedy "Piccoli equivoci" scored him his first nod, while his supporting role in the crime drama "Tre colonne in cronaca" was his first win. He'd go on to become a regular face at this ceremony, earning 10 nominations and ultimately netting three wins for his acting. Castellitto began exploring writing in the late 1980s and directing in the late 1990s, but it was when he combined these efforts with his acting prowess in 2004's daring romance-fueled drama, "Don't Move," that everything clicked. This stirring feature, which was co-written by his wife, Margaret Mazzantini, and co-starred Penélope Cruz, earned Castellitto worldwide acclaim, as well as David di Donatello Award nominations for Best Director, Best Film, and Best Screenplay. Despite this success, he says acting remains his true love, so while he dabbles in the occasional screenplay or director's gig, Castellitto is primarily an actor, filliing cinema screens with his eye-catching performances. Stateside he may be best-known for his role in the epic adaptation " The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian," in which he played murderous usurper Miraz, his first villainous role, in 2008.
