Alessandro Borghi will represent Italy in the 20th edition of the Berlinale Shooting Stars, a platform for young European actors organized every year as a special event during the Berlin Film Festival.
It couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy.
Talk about managing a career in a smart way, Alessandro Borghi’s last two feature films have been huge, and he’s been huge in them. Playing Numero 8 in the cool Netflix production Suburra and Vittorio in the movie Italy submitted to the Oscars, Non Essere Cattivo (Don’t Be Bad), Borghi is on the precipice of greatness. (Good thing I’ve already gotten my selfie with him, because he’s going to be in high demand.)
Borghi won last year’s David di Donatello for Best Supporting Actor, the Nastro D’Argento Revelation of the Year Award and was #25 on this year’s Ciak Magazine “It List”.
The Shooting Star program has launched the careers of stars like Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz.
