Pierfrancesco Favino

Biography

Rome-born actor Pierfrancesco Favino enjoyed a spate of roles in his native Italy from the early '90s onward, in features such as the 1995 Pugili and the 2002 Emma sono io, but broke through to global recognition in 2006 when he appeared opposite Ben Stiller and Dick Van Dyke in the sweet-natured, family-oriented fantasy Night at the Museum. In subsequent years, Favino divided his time between Italian productions (Saturn in Opposition, 2007) and Hollywood efforts (The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian, Miracle at St. Anna). ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
