Alessandro Juliani

Born and raised in Vancouver, British Columbia, Alessandro Juliani made his television debut at the age of 11, as Julio, the piano-playing street-kid on the 1986 MacGyver Christmas Special. Critics and audiences raved, but they would have to wait almost a decade before Juliani returned to the small screen, showing his range as a unibrowed transsexual alien in the short-lived but imaginative television series Welcome to Paradox.

In the years between those two roles, Juliani studied opera and voice at McGill University in Montreal, pursuing a curriculum that culminated in a lead role in the opera Albert Herring at the prestigious Britten/Pears Festival in Aldeburgh, England.

Since returning to Vancouver in 1999, he has worked steadily in film, television, theater, opera and, most recently, as a composer and sound designer.

His on-camera credits include the SCI FI Channel miniseries Legend of Earthsea, the telefilm Meltdown, the Showtime original series Jeremiah, a recurring role as Druid on Dark Angel, the SCI FI Original Miniseries Event Steven Spielberg Presents TAKEN, the SCI FI Original Series Stargate SG-1, Seven Days, the horror feature Final Destination and Anne-Marie Fleming's award-winning short film Blue Skies, for which he received a Leo Nomination.
