Profile Bio Text
Anthony M. LaPaglia (born 31 January 1959) is an Australian actor. He is known for his Golden Globe Award-winning role as FBI agent Jack Malone on the American TV series Without a Trace, and for his Emmy Award-winning portrayal of Simon Moon on the TV show Frasier. LaPaglia was born in Adelaide, South Australia, the son of Maria Johannes (née Brendel), a secretary, and Gedio "Eddie" LaPaglia, an auto mechanic and car dealer. LaPaglia`s mother was Dutch and his Italian father immigrated from Bovalino, Calabria at the age of eighteen. His younger brother, Jonathan LaPaglia, is also an actor, and his other brother, Michael, is a car wholesaler in Los Angeles. LaPaglia attended Rostrevor College.
LaPaglia`s credits include the films Innocent Blood, The Client, Looking for Alibrandi, Lantana, Summer of Sam, So I Married an Axe Murderer, and Empire Records. LaPaglia also appeared in nine episodes of the sitcom Frasier, including the series finale, playing Daphne Moon`s brother Simon. In the 1980s, LaPaglia was a goalkeeper in the National Soccer League, playing for Adelaide City and West Adelaide. LaPaglia is now part owner of A-League club Sydney FC, and has been flying from California to Sydney to attend their matches since their inception in 2005. He was the narrator and executive producer of The Away Game, a critically-acclaimed television documentary exploring the experiences of Australian footballers in Europe.
LaPaglia currently lives in Santa Monica, California. He has said that he adopted an American accent to help him get acting work after moving to America, and has now lost his Australian accent completely. Some critics and viewers have noted his occasional dialect slips. However, he is still capable of performing a flawless Australian accent in later roles in Australian movies such as Lantana and Balibo. LaPaglia`s first marriage was to actress Cherie Michan. He is currently married to Australian actress Gia Carides, whom he met at a party; the two starred jointly in the 1994 (Ben Lewin) Australian movie Lucky Break and married in 1998. They have one daughter, Bridget.
