Olivia Pacino is the youngest daughter of Hollywood actor, Al Pacino, and actress, Beverly D’Angelo. She is the apple of her father’s eyes and he spends all the time he can spare with her and her twin brother, Anton Pacino.
The Hollywood celebrity kids enjoy the affection of both their parents, most especially their father, who has vowed to be present for them even though he is no longer with their mother. His intention to be there for his kids stemmed from his experience with his father not being present in his life since he divorced from his mother.
Olivia Pacino – Biography
Olivia Rose Pacino and her twin brother Anton James Pacino were born on January 25, 2001, in the United States. The twins have a much older half-sister, Julie Marie Pacino – the product of a relationship their father had earlier with his acting coach, Jan Tarrant.
Information about the childhood of the twins has been kept pretty much away from the prying eyes of the public. Their educational background is also not public knowledge and it’s safe to say that their parents have put in a lot of effort to shield them away from the media and the children themselves have kept a very low profile, staying away from any scandals or untoward behavior that would draw public scrutiny.
Olivia and her twin brother, Anton James Pacino are the offsprings of veteran actor, Al Pacino, and actress, Beverly D’Angelo. The pair, though never married, was in a serious relationship right from 1996 to the year 2003.
Their mother is the daughter of Eugene D’Angelo and Priscilla D’Angelo (nee Ruth). She was born on November 15, 1951, in Columbus, Ohio, in the United States of America. She is a singer, illustrator, and actress who has featured in more than 60 movies, though she began her professional acting career in the theater.
Beverly’s relationship with Al Pacino was not her first, as she was previously married to an Italian actor, Lorenzo Salvati for 14 years. They got married in 1981 and after a few years of marriage, they separated and lived separately for many years, before they officially got divorced in 1995 without having any children together.
Olivia’s father is the legendary actor and filmmaker, Al Pacino. He was born in East Harlem, New York City on April 25, 1940, and was named Alfredo James Pacino at birth by his Italian parents – Rose and Salvatore Pacino. His parents left each other when he was at the tender age of 2. Alfredo was raised by his mother in the Bronx.
He wanted to be a famous baseball player when he was very young, but as time went on, his love for acting got the better side of him and he left all to pursue his new dream. After completing his education at Herma Ridder Junior High School, his passion for acting had consumed him so much that he had to abandon his education and even left home after falling out with his mother about his choice to be an actor. He took on several low paying and odd jobs just to finance himself through acting school. His breakthrough came when he met Charlie Laughton, who was a teacher at Herbert Berghof Studio, who became his mentor and very close friend.
Al Pacino’s film debut was in 1969 in a movie called “Me, Natalie”. His major film breakthrough came in 1972 when he featured as Michael Corleone in the blockbuster movie “The Godfather”. He has never looked back since those days and has won every award possible in the entertainment industry.
There is also Olivia’s half-sister Julie Marie Pacino who was born in 1989 to Al Pacino and Jan Tarrant. Julie is now a film producer and director who has worked on some films such as the 2017 films “Tura” and “Shifting Past”.
