Who Exactly is Alessandro and How Old is He?

Alessandro Nivola was born on the 28th of June, 1972. The actor was born in Boston, Massachusetts into quite the historic family. His immediate parents, Virginia Davis and Pietro Salvatore Nivola are an artist and a professor of political science, respectively.

Part of his significant genealogy includes his paternal grandfather, Costantino Nivola who was a notable sculptor. His mother is a relative of Jefferson Davis, who was a Confederate President. Alessandro was raised along with his brother, Adrian.

Coming from a well-to-do family, Alessandro Nivola had access to quality education; he studied at the prestigious Phillips Exeter Academy and then later at Yale University. During a brief relocation to Burlington, Vermont, Alessandro attended Mater Christi School.

Born into a family with serious attachments to the arts, it wasn’t a coincidence that Alessandro found his way into the arts. Apart from having the looks of a classic modern actor, he also possesses the charm of one and it was no surprise that he earned a nomination for a Drama Desk Award after his debut as a professional actor on a Broadway stage.

In his debut, which was in a production of A Month In The Country, the actor starred opposite of the formidable and iconic Helen Mirren.

His ability to hold his own and deliver a performance worthy of critic praise against an acting icon like Helen Mirren was all the introduction Alessandro needed to show that he was a capable actor.

Since then, he has gone on to star in several films and television shows, delivering exceptional performances from one project to another. Some of his appearances in films include American Hustle, Laurel Canyon, Jurassic Park 3, Face/Off and many others.

Several of his performances have gotten him nominations for various film awards, so much that he has a dedicated Wikipedia page for his award nominations and wins.

While he has an extensive list of appearances in Film, he has a limited number of appearances in Television. Alessandro Nivola appeared in the 2017 Television film, The Wizard of Lies where he played the son of the famous Bernard Madoff, Mark Madoff. This remains one of his few notable appearances on television.

He also played Leo Kritzky in the miniseries, The Company. Other television appearances include The Almost Perfect Bank Robbery, The Ring, Remeber WENN and Doll & Em.

In Theatre, where he introduced himself to Hollywood executives as a formidable actor, he has appeared in a modest number of plays. His performance in one of the plays, The Elephant Man where he starred alongside Bradley Cooper, earned him a nomination for Best Featured Actor in a Play in the Tony Awards.

Not satisfied with just playing roles in front of the camera, Nivola established a film and television company called King Bee Productions. He owns the production company along with his wife, the actress, Emily Mortimer.
