Nick Giangiulio was born in Bryn Mawr, PA and was raised in Ardmore and Havertown,PA under the umbrella of a great big wonderful loving extended Italian family. He graduated Haverford High School, a 4 letter athlete in football, wrestling, ice hockey and baseball before graduating from the University of Dayton with a BA in Communication Arts, majoring in Public Relations and minoring in Theatre.
Nick has been a working member of the acting unions since moving to New York in 1978. Initially, he made his living doing TV and Radio Commercials and Character Modeling. On the set of his first film, The Wanderers, he was asked to throw a punch and as it so happened, was good at it. This led to many fine years of film and TV work as an actor who could do stunts if required. Eventually, acting roles opened up for Nick in film and TV without having to get physical. He has studied technique in Meisner and The Method along with scene study work with various well known acting teachers.
Nick has worked extensively Off-Broadway and in regional theatres around the country. His film roles, in addition to A Tale Of Two Pizzas, includes Godzilla, A Fish In The Bathtub, Jungle 2 Jungle, Last Exit To Brooklyn, Cotton Club and Ragtime. On TV he has been seen in multiple episodes of Law & Order and Law & Order SVU, Third Watch, Trinity, Central Park West, True Blue and Mathnet.
Nick and Vincent Sassone met acting together in a film entitled Down Under Manhattan Bridge. He later appreared in Sassone's 36 minute short, Italian Lessons, also set in Yonkers. Nick has been friends with Louis Guss, his "theatrical godfather," for many years. Likewise, Nick and Vincent Pastore, have worked together through the years. The cast and crew of A Tale of Two Pizzas as well as the town of Yonkers will be close to Nick's heart for many years to come.
