Al Sapienza was born in New York City. Started studying music at the age of eight. Got hit with the acting bug when he was twelve. Five months after graduating NYU he landed a role in the Broadway musical "Beatlemania". Stayed in that show for five years and headed out to Los Angeles. He studied with Milton Katselas until 1998 when he landed the role of Mikey Palmice in "The Sopranos" which brought him back to NY. Being a bi-costal "local" actor from that point he just kept working. And now resides in Toronto , NY and LA. "I am the happiest when I am working and creating"
