Giancarlo Giuseppe Alessandro Esposito was born in Copenhagen, Denmark to an Italian father and an American mother. His mother was an opera and nightclub singer from Alabama, who once appeared on the same bill as Josephine Baker. His father was from Naples, and worked as a stagehand and carpenter. Esposito lived in Europe, until the family settled in Manhattan when he was six.
Coming from a theatrical background (his mother was a singer and his father a carpenter and stagehand) it was, perhaps, inevitable that young Giancarlo would appear on stage sooner or later, and he did, at age 8, appearing on Broadway as a slave child in Maggie Flynn in 1966.
More Broadway work followed through the '60s and early-'70s, followed by some small roles in movies. TV work followed in the 1980s with increasingly significant parts in a string of high profile series until he became well established as a character player both on TV and in a number of movies.
He came very much to the public's attention playing Agent Mike Giardello in the TV series Homicide: Life on the Street in 1998 and since then has rarely been off our screens.
- He hosted and narrated the second season Once Upon a Time special Once Upon a Time: Magic is Coming.
