Bruno Francesco Verdoni was born in an Italian neighborhood in Montreal, Canada and is a citizen of the USA, CANADA and ITALY. He is fluent in English and French and has just finished a short film he wrote and directed, Heaven and Earth; A Ritual. Although TV shows and movies, especially Westerns, showed their early influence through the arrangement of his toy cowboy/war buddies underneath the kitchen table; it was music that grabbed his passion first, after sadly realizing he didn't have what it took to be an NHL hockey player or a veterinarian. He took up the trumpet and studied Mozart, Beethoven and Maynard Ferguson among others. After high school the bass guitar had him playing, writing, rehearsing and touring with a prog rock band for 4 years. In university, while studying psychology, he became more interested in his film classes studying masters such as Di Palma, Scorcese, Trumbo, Fellini, Pasolini, Truffault, Joseph Losey, Orson Welles and consequently began acting in short films and doing improv. He received a BA in Arts/music composition and started touring as a musical performer, recording jingles and appearing on local TV talk shows. Eventually he moved to Toronto to pursue a fully committed acting career, then relocating to Vancouver and finally to Los Angeles. Since, he has been seen acting in projects starring Jessica Chastain, John Malkovich, Evangeline Lily, Peter Krause, Barbara Hershey, Jennifer Beals, Lawrence Fishburne, Paget Brewster, James Cromwell, Viola Davis and Scott Wilson to name a few. His absolute love for the art of acting and filmmaking makes him a permanent student of life - especially with the help of his young daughter Francesca. Other important interests include Filmmaking, Fitness, Soundtrack Production, Meditation, Horses, Film, and Music.
