Stanley Tucci is an actor, filmmaker, screenwriter, and author from America. He is unarguably one of the most prominent and popular character actors working in the industry today. After graduating with an acting degree from SUNY Purchase like many of his contemporary colleagues, Tucci starred in the Broadway play ‘The Queen and the Rebels’ in 1982. He made his screen debut three years later in the black comedy ‘Prizzi's Honor’. In the early phase of his career, he appeared in a series of small yet memorable roles in both films and television shows, effectively gathering experience as well as getting better at his craft. He starred as the titular character in his breakthrough television film ‘Winchell’, which earned him both Golden Globe and Primetime Emmy awards. Over the course of his career, he has appeared in films representing every genre, working with some of the biggest stars in Hollywood and enriching the projects with his unique brand of humour and pathos. Not only most of his works have been praised by the critics, many of them are huge box-office hits as well. He received an Oscar nod for the 2009 supernatural drama ‘The Lovely Bones’.

Born on November 11, 1960, in Peekskill, New York, Stanley Tucci grew up in Katonah, one of the three hamlets within the town of Bedford, Westchester County, New York. He is the oldest child and only son of Joan (née Tropiano) and Stanley Tucci Sr. He has two sisters, actress Christine Tucci and artist Gina Tucci.
His father was an art teacher at Horace Greeley High School in Chappaqua, New York while his mother was a secretary and a writer. Both of his parents were of Italian ancestry and the family spent a year in the 1970s, in Florence, Italy.
After graduating from John Jay High School in Cross River, he enrolled at the State University of New York at Purchase. He graduated in 1982, with a degree in acting.
His first television appearance was in an episode of NBC’s crime-drama ‘Crime Story’ in 1987. He played recurring roles in ‘Miami Vice’ (1986, 1987-88), ‘Wiseguy’ (1988-89), ‘thirtysomething’ (1989-90), and ‘Equal Justice’ (1991). In the first season of the legal drama ‘Murder One’ (1995-96), Tucci portrayed Richard Cross, a charming but morally ambiguous philanthropist.
Stanley Tucci married his first wife Kathryn “Kate” in 1995, and had three children with her, twins Nicolo Robert and Isabel Concetta (Born January 21, 2000) and Camilla (2002). A social worker, she also had two children from her previous marriage to actor and stage manager Alexander R. Scott. Kate passed away from breast cancer on April 27, 2009.
Actress Emily Blunt had introduced her elder sister, British literary agent Felicity Blunt, to Tucci a few years after they worked together in ‘The Devil Wears Prada’. They initially married in a civil ceremony in the summer of 2012, and later in a traditional wedding at Middle Temple Hall in London on September 29. Blunt gave birth to their son, Matteo Oliver, on January 25, 2015. The family resides in the leafy London suburb of Barnes, London, UK.
