Which talent did you discover first about yourself, and then what came next? I have had a good instinct for business since I was young. The arts come in second, but I immediately connected with it. I literally merged together with my business skills with acting and that’s how I was able to naturally be an actor and producer at the same time with a deep understanding on both sides. It helped me a lot because the entertainment industry is a business and just being very artistically talented is not enough nowadays. Once you’re in Hollywood, you become a product that needs to sell. Waiting around for your agent to call you while you’re busy at parties is not going to take you far.
What was your first acting job? Enzo: One of the biggest Italian directors, Carlo Vanzina, decided to cast me for the role of a villain for a TV series in Italy on channel 5. It was like a dream for every actor. I didn’t have to audition. What happened is that my agent in Italy recommended me. They called the assistant director, and they scheduled a meeting with him the following day. He liked me. We spoke a little bit. The director wanted to see me. He looked me in the face and said, ‘I like him. The role is yours.’ This is what I love about auditioning. You speak to the director; he gets a vibe from you if you can play the character, using his imagination. That’s the dream of every actor. You get the chance to feel the person and he understands what you can do and what you cannot. Discover even more info at producer Enzo Zelocchi.
