At A Glance
Born in Milan, Italy, Paolo Seganti used the boxing ring as a surrogate stage, winning the Italian Amateur Championship within six months and continuing fighting and acting (theatre) on and off for 5 years. He fronted worldwide campaigns for Chanel, YSL, Lanvin and Calvin Klein after a successful career as the Italian Amateur Boxing Champion brought him to the attention of world renowned photographers such as Bruce Weber, Jean-Paul Goude, Peter Lindberg and Jean-Baptiste Mondino.

The role of Damian Grimaldi on CBS's As The World Turns was Paolo's first introduction to television and his first paid job as an actor. The importance of his character grew due to audience demand and instead of a short stint Damian became an important part of ATWT's probably best loved character: Lily Walsh (Grimaldi). Paolo's character became so popular that Damian's role was revived several times after Paolo had already left the show and he was always happy to come back.

Paolo began working extensively on the New York stage receiving critical acclaim and sell-out audiences for his lead roles in Equus and the self-directed Whose Life Is It Anyway which immediately alerted Hollywood to his potential.

Paolo heralded his film debut with Woody Allen's Everyone Says I Love You, quickly followed by Johnny Stompanato in Curtis Hanson's multi-award winner LA Confidential, the independent feature Still Breathing co-starring opposite Brendan Fraser, and Franco Zefferelli's Tea With Mussolini alongside Cher, Judi Dench and Joan Plowright.

More recently, Paolo has been the lead of Paramount's sensational action series Largo Winch based on the international comic strip, the French dark comedy by Parisian Star-actor/director Patric Timsit L'American and the lead in White Iris.
