Who Is Dominic Zamprogna The General Hospital Actor?
Dominic Zamprogna was born in Hamilton, Canada on 21st April 1979. The actor who has stamped his name on soap opera seems not interested in sharing information about his early life. Among the few things known about his early days is the fact that he grew up in Canada and that his parents ran a dance school in his hometown. In addition, his father Lou Zampogna was multi-talented. He was known as a talented dancer and a choreographer. Lou also operated an acting school at Theatre Aquarius and his theatrical engagements were what exposed Dominic to the entertainment world. Even so, the actor was passionate about sports particularly basketball and soccer. He had wished to become a young athlete but later realized he would do better as an actor.
During his childhood, Dominic Zamprogna debuted his acting career and his first acting gig was in F/X2. His next project was in the Tv series Are You Afraid of the Dark in which he played Rush from The Tale of Cutter’s Treasure Part 1 and Part 2. He also had a stint as Jed from The Tale of the Full Moon.
After high school, Dominic enrolled in Toronto University but dropped out almost immediately to pursue his acting career. In 1997, Zamprogna career kicked off with a starring role in the movie The Boys Club. He followed this up with a number of other movies including Battlestar Galactica and Edgemont.
