Happy Birthday Dominic Zamprogna!
The General Hospital actor who has played Detective Dante Falconeri since 2009, celebrates his special day on April 21. Dante is the son of Olivia Falconieri and Sonny Corinthos and the husband of Lesley Lu (Lulu) Spencer.
Canadian actor Dominic Zamprogna comes from an acting family. His parents, brother and twin sister are all theater trained actors. Zamprogna has appeared on a multitude of films and television series.
I first saw Zamprogna when he appeared as a vampire in the 2006 Season One episode “Dean Man’s Blood” in The CW’s Supernatural.
When he first appeared on General Hospital, Dominic was Dominic Perilli, a man who wanted to join Sonny’s organization in order to infiltrate the mob. He met fiery Lulu Spencer (then played by Julie Berman) at Jake’s and the two began a passionate romance. Berman and Zamprogna immediately became fan favorites. When the revelation that Dominic was an undercover cop came out, that put him in danger. He was shot by Sonny. Olivia was forced to confess to Sonny that he was their son. Father and son were eventually able to forge a relationship. Lulu (now played by Emme Rylan) and Dante married and faced a whole set of problems; including a kidnapping, child conception issues, an affair (Dante with Lulu’s cousin Valerie) and unknown daughter (Lulu’s little girl Charlotte). The couple divorced but ended up remarrying. Dante has also faced the hazards of being a cop.
Dominic Zamprogna received a Daytime Emmy Award nomination in 2014 for Outstanding Supporting Actor for his work on General Hospital. Zamprogna is married and the father of three children.
So on this April 21 your birthday Dominic, I wish you continued success and happiness.
