Giancarlo Giuseppe Alessandro Esposito (born April 26, 1958) is an American film and television actor and director.
Esposito was born in Copenhagen, Denmark to an Italian father and African-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, New York, and Cleveland until the family settled in Manhattan when he was six.
