Born as:

Alfredo Pacino

Alfredo was raised in New York (USA) by his mother and grandparents from age two. He dropped out of school at 17 and spent several years drifting from job to job. In 1966 Al was admitted to Lee Strasberg's Actors Studio. Making appearances in various plays, Pacino finally won an Obie award for “The Indian Wants the Bronx”.

The part of Michael Corleone in The Godfather (1972) changed his life. Instead of taking on easier projects for money, Pacino made films such as the true life crime drama Serpico(1973) and the tragic bank robbery film Dog Day Afternoon (1975).

In 1985 a monumental mistake, Revolution, kept him out of movies for the next four years. Despite his success in films Pacino considers himself first and foremost a stage actor, he remains commited to the theatre.
