Giacomo Gianniotti Bio
Giacomo Keaton Gianniotti, popularly referred to as Giacomo Gianniotti, is an Italian-Canadian actor who was born on the 19th of June 1989 in Rome, Italy to Giorgio Giannotti and his Canadian wife whose name was given as Keaton. The actor has a sister named Isabelle Gianniotti with whom he was raised back in Rome before the family moved to Ontario, Canada.
With regards to schooling, Giannotti attended Cardinal Carter Academy for the Arts in Toronto before graduating and moving to Humber Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning, where he enrolled in their Theatre Program and graduated thereof. Next came his enrollment at the Norman Jewison’s Canadian Film Centre in Toronto, where he completed his actor’s residency before focusing entirely on building his career.
From a young age, Gianniotti had an interest in the arts which hugely influenced the choice of the schools he attended. He began by working on stage, before moving to television series and appearing in Canadian and Italian films. The actor’s first acting gig was in the episode “Separazioni” of the Italian medical drama series, Medicina Generale (2010) as the character Alberto Talenti. He didn’t feature in any other film until 2013 when he recorded a couple of acting roles in various television series as well as in one short film project titled Done.
The actor continued to grow his acting career with roles in tv series and films like Still (2014), Selfie (2014), and The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe (2015). He then landed the role of Dr. Andrew DeLuca in Grey’s Anatomy which he has been starring in from 2015 to this present time. In 2018, Giacomo Gianniotti starred in Station 19, in the episode “No Recovery.”
For his role in Grey’s Anatomy, Gianniotti has received two nominations; the Golden Maple Award for Best Actor in a TV series broadcast in the U.S and the Golden Maple Award for Newcomer of the year in a TV series broadcast in the U.S, both in 2016.
As mentioned above, Giacomo Gianniotti was born to an Italian father named Giorgio, and his Canadian wife whose surname is said to be Keaton. He grew up knowing how to speak Italian which he learned from his father who worked as a waiter. Giorgio is said to have spent his leisure time teaching his kids the culture and language of Italy. His mother was not left out in these teachings as she became fluent in Italian, making the family’s Italian cultural integration complete.
After about 15 years in Rome, the Giannotti’s relocated to Canada when Giacomo landed his Beauty & the Beast role. They first stayed at his mother’s hometown of Parry Sound, Ontario before moving to Toronto, Canada where they are believed to now have a family home.
