Date of Birth:
Andrea Piedimonte spent his childhood living and studying across Italy, France and Switzerland until he eventually moved to New York to pursue his passion in acting by training at several top theater schools and private studios. During that time, he also started working on short films and Off-Off Broadway shows. He then joined and eventually became a board member of the New York Italian Theater Company, an ensemble that performed both in English and Italian. While studying, he began his professional career in Film thanks to Woody Allen who cast him as Natasha Lyonne's love interest in the film Everyone Says I Love You (1996). Shortly afterward, Piedimonte got his feet wet in the Television world on the set of the daytime drama "The Guiding Light" (1952), where he played Giorgio, a young jet-setter with a disrupting agenda. In 1998, he got cast by Enrico Vanzina and Carlo Vanzina and moved to Italy to star as Ciro, the romantic but poor fisherman in Mediaset's hit television miniseries "Anni '50" (1998). He then starred with Vittoria Belvedere in "Le ragazze di Piazza di Spagna" (1998) for Italian network RAIDUE and with Italian star Fabio Canino in the Italian production of the award winning play "Making Porn," by American playwright Ronnie Larsen. Eventually, Andrea relocated to Los Angeles after enjoying positive international feedback with his role in Ridley Scott's Hannibal (2001). Bouncing between the US and Italy for the past several years, he has acted in numerous films and television shows such as Soldati di pace (2002) (TV), for Italian national network RAIUNO, "Curb Your Enthusiasm", with Larry David for HBO, Hallmark's The Long Shot (2004) (TV) by Emmy winning director Georg Stanford Brown and once again working with the Vanzina brothers on Mediaset's "Un ciclone in famiglia" (2005). Andrea is presently in the US actively engaged in combining his acting career with his newly started career as a producer; in fact, Andrea is one of the people behind All the Invisible Children (2005), an ambitious international film shot by directors Mehdi Charef, Emir Kusturica, Spike Lee, 'Katia Lund', Jordan Scott, Ridley Scott, Stefano Veneruso and John Woo for the benefit of the United Nations' World Food Programme and UNICEF.
