Giacomo Gianniotti’s Dream of Making It Big in the Show Business Is Now a Reality
The Grey's Anatomy star Giacomo Gianniotti always visualized himself as a part of the entertainment industry. Now, after over twenty acting credits to his name, the actor is living his dream.
Made His Debut at 21
The actor made his debut in 2010 in an Italian drama Series, Medicina generale, where he played the punk rock character Alberto Talenti.
According to IMDb, the TV series's plot was about the lives of doctors doing their everyday jobs helping the people who get injured. The series has an average rating of 7.5/10 stars on the platform. Medicina generale aired from 2007 to 2010 and was produced in Italy.
It turns out Grey's Anatomy is not the first hospital-based series credited to his acting career. The Italian-Canadian actor joined the fictional Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital as an intern, Andrew DeLuca, in 2015.
The audition for his role took place at the end of 2014. Later in February 2015, Gianniotti moved to Los Angeles along with his two friends. They packed up and made a 2500 mile road journey from his hometown, Toronto.
About 15 hours into the drive and a couple of months after his audition, the actor got a call from his manager saying that the role was down to him and another actor. During the remainder of the three-day journey, Gianniotti took his time and prepared for his last audition.
Eventually, he performed amazingly in the audition and got the role. Initially, he entered the series just as a guest. However, his exceptional acting made him a series regular.
Loves His Work Every Day
Many people have questioned whether the top-rated ABC series is ending, but the fans now have a reason to be happy as it is coming back with a brand new season 18. Gianniotti took to his Instagram on February 16, 2021, to share the script's front page for Episode 1711 of Grey's Anatomy.
In the monochrome picture, the series name, Grey's Anatomy, was in all caps with the tagline, "Sorry Doesn't Always Make It Right." The drama is written by Julie Song and directed by Gianniotti himself. At the same time, it revealed the shoot dates from February 6, 2021, to March 1, 2021. It stated the prep dates from February 4, 2021, to February 12, 2021.
In the post, the Acquainted actor shared his desire as a 17-year-old to make it into the show biz, essentially theatre. He explained while he was in high school Cardinal Carter Academy for the Arts in Toronto, Canada, the girls would gossip about the latest steamy hookups on Grey's Anatomy.
And now, fifteen years later, he is a crucial part of the ABC series as an actor and a director. Gianniotti revealed that if someone had told him about his future, he would have called them nuts. But now, he's living his dreams and loves his job.
"Time sure does fly when you're having fun, Here's to another 15. Who knows where I'll be standing then," he added. In the end, he thanked the writer, his mentor, and everyone associated with the series.
Fans have been flooding his post with encouraging comments ever since the picture was uploaded online. One user commented, "Yaaaas!!! Go, Giacomo, go!! So excited for you!!" Another gushed, "Congratulations, brother! This is incredible â¤ï¸."
On February 19, 2021, the 30-year-old actor also uploaded a slate shot on day 4 of Grey's Anatomy shoot on his Instagram. The slate showed Giacomo Gianniotti as the director and Steven Fracol on the camera.
