He started to play the keyboard at a very young age and never let his dreams stall. He wanted to make it big in the world of Art and Entertainment. Rudy did not limit himself to one area of entertainment- music. But he went on to master the skills of acting, direction and storyboarding. In an interview, he said that the best part of Vine is that he gets to tell a short story with himself as the character, where he can call the shots and run a ‘one man’s show’, just like Charlie Chaplin. Thus, with his incessant ambitions, Rudy juggles life between Los Angeles and New York.
As rooted as one can be, Rudy Mancuso doesn’t have as much fanfare on other social media sites. Resting on his 10.6 million followers on Vine, it’s surprising to see such a great difference of followers on other sites. However, the comments and love he is showered with on Vine, is enough to balance it all. Sometimes, it’s just the work one puts in that earnsthem admiration more than creating a mega personality. Rudy is passionate about whatever he does, whether it be signing, composing a new gig, cinematography or working on his performance skills. He likes to better his work, learning from prior experience. On the personal front, Rudy has had a couple of love affairs, but his longest has been with Maia Mitchell known for her role as Brittany Flune in the television series ‘Mortified’
Behind The Curtains
While an American citizen, Rudy has a Brazilian and Italian background that he effectively uses in the characters he plays on Vine. Rudy has an elder sibling, a sister and we have seen his mother too in a number of Vine videos that he released when he had just familiarized himself with Vine.In one of his videos, we see him at the dining table with his mother, annoying her to his heart’s content. Yet little is known about his family. On the other hand, his love affairs have not been hidden from media, with videos and pictures doing the rounds during the Rudy-Maia fling. Rudy and Maia looked a wonderful pair and all was going well for them until February or March 2016 when the two broke up. Rumorhas it that the two might be getting back together, but no evidence supports the rumors.
