Happy 70th Birthday Lucio Rosato
Lucio Rosato was born on January 21, 1940 in Italy. Lucio graduated from the National Academy of Dramtic Arts in 1964 and started appearing in the theater. In 1966 he makes his first film appearance as Aldo Sambrell's brother Jeffrey Duncan in "Navajo Joe". He would go on to appear in over 30 films and television appearances with nine of them in Euro-westerns. His first film appearance was in the Robert Woods western “$4.00 for Revenge”. Luciano would also appear in such Euro-westerns as “Days of Violence” (1967) with Peter Lee Lawrence, “Cry of Death” (1968) with Glenn Saxson “The Specialst” with Johnny Halliday (1969), “The Unholy Four” (1970) with Leonard Mann and “The Deserter” (1971) with Bekim Fehmiu. Lucio is still active and teaches acting and runs a theater called Gallicano nel Lazio and also makes an occasional TV appearance. Today we celebrate Lucio Rosato’s 70th birthday.
