Alfredo James Pacino was born in Manhattan, New York in 1940. He was born to Salvatore and Rose Pacino, who were both Italian-Americans. Their families had moved to the U.S from Italy and Rose’s parents had actually come from a town called Corleone in Sicily. Pacino’s parents divorced when he was two years old and he went to live with his mother and his grandparents.
Early in life Al Pacino aspired to be a baseball player, but also kept an interest in acting. He left his home and as a result, had to go through quite a tough time. He was essentially homeless and used to work several menial jobs like becoming a busboy and a janitor just to pay for his acting classes. He was rejected by the Actor’s Studio, the world renowned institute for actors. He didn’t give up and was accepted by the Herbert Berghof Studio. Here he met Charlie Laughton, a teacher, who would later become his close friend and mentor.
It took Pacino four years before he was finally accepted by the Actor’s Studio. Here, under the tutelage of actor Lee Strasberg, he learned the art of method acting. To this day, he credits the institute for giving his acting career the boost it needed.
In 1967, Pacino got his first role in a play, “Awake and Sing” and he appeared in another play titled “The Indian Wants the Bronx” the following year. The latter was a success and Al Pacino won an Obie Award for his performance. He also met his long time manager, Martin Bregman during this time and that turned into a very fruitful relationship for years to come.
In 1969, Pacino appeared in his first Broadway production, titled “Does a Tiger Wear a Necktie.” It only ran for thirty three shows, but Pacino’s performances were highly praised and he won a Tony Award later that year. The award and his acting prowess got him his first movie role, a small appearance in the film “Me, Natalie.” That led to further roles and his performance in the movie “The Panic in Needle Park” caught the attention of Francis Ford Coppola. Pacino was chosen to play Michael Corleone in a “The Godfather.” It turned out to be an all time classic and gave Al Pacino the break he had been looking for.
Since then, Al Pacino has acted in over forty movies, five television shows and sixteen stage productions. He has been nominated for the Academy Awards eight times and has won it once, for “Scent of a Woman.” He has also won four Golden Globes, two Emmy Awards, one BAFTA Film Award and two Tony Awards. He has also won the Cecil B. DeMille Award and has received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Film Institute.
Actors around the world would give anything to achieve even half the things Pacino has accomplished in his long and illustrious career. He has been an inspiration for a whole new generation of actors and now he is sharing his experiences with you.
