April 3, 1978
Actor Alessandro Juliani was born in Montreal, the son of actor/producer/director John Juliani and singer Donna Wong-Juliani. Alessandro inherited his parents' talents, as not only has he acted in numerous television programs and film, but is also a singer in his own right (having attended McGill University early on). Juliani's acting career began in the early 1990s, with voice work for "Captain N: The Game Master" and "Ranma 1/2." His voice work has continued over the years, including such subsequent programs as "X-Men: Evolution." But it would be shortly after the dawn of the 21st century that Juliani would land his most widely known role yet, as Lt. Felix Gaeta on the television series "Battlestar Galactica" (a remake of the 1978 program). A few years later, Juliani landed another acclaimed television role, as Dr. Emil Hamilton on "Smallville."
