Many actors and performers in the entertainment industry started their career without any formal training, Bobby Cannavale happens to be one of such people. He started at the age of eight when he was still in school but later worked in a theatre where he trained on the job.

Bobby Cannavale Bio

Renowned actor Bobby Cannavale was born in New Jersey, in the United States on May 3, 1970. He was raised in Union City, New Jersey by his parents – Isabel (mother) who is of Cuban descent and Sal Cannavale (father) who is of Italian descent. Consequently, Bobby belongs to both Italian and Cuban lineage.

Bobby whose nationality is American and ethnicity is white was raised in a Catholic family and attended St. Michael’s Catholic School. While in school, he partook in a few extracurricular activities ranging from serving as an altar boy to participating in the choir. Bobby was not comfortable with the controlled setting of the school environment and he often got into trouble and was suspended for disobedient and rebellious conduct. Fortunately, he was interested in acting right from his early years and luckily, he landed the choice role of the lisping boy, Winthrop, in his school’s making of The Music Man when he was eight years old.

Later in life, a role he played in Guys and Dolls as a gangster cemented his love for acting as a career. When Bobby was 13 years old, his parents got divorced and the family had to move to Puerto Rico where they settled in Margate, Florida.

In order for him to be closer to New York to launch his acting career, Bobby returned to New Jersey after he barely got a high school diploma from Coconut Creek High School in 1987. According to the actor, he nearly didn’t make it to graduation level because he couldn’t make the required number of credits due to the fact that he failed mathematics every year and consequently, he had to finish up at a summer school. At Coconut Creek High School, Bobby joined the school drama troupe and was slated to play one of the lead roles in the school springtime drama in 1987.

In his determination to become an actor, Bobby lived with his grandma in new jersey while trying to hit it big. He even had to work as a bouncer in some nightclubs in New York while he waited patiently to get a role. Nightclubs like U.S.A., Café Society and Tunnel saw him working as a bouncer while acting in plays. His big break came when he landed a role in the play The Normal Heart in 1994. A renowned playwright Lanford Wilson who saw him perform in the play brought him aboard The Circle Repertory Company where TV producer and writer John Wells noticed how good he was and consequently cast him in two of his series Trinity and Third Watch.
