New York Film Academy four week acting workshop graduate Jacopo Sarno, has been growing an impressive resume since returning to Italy. Jacopo recently played a main role in Italian Christmas comedy A Natale Mi Sposo. The film was released throughout Italy and beat Harry Potter in sales before Christmas. He is now shooting TV series Non Smettere di Sognare, which he describes as “Glee in Italian.” Jacopo plays the guitarist of a band on the show, which will air weekly on Canale5 National TV.
Outside his film and television appearances, Jacopo did voice overs at a 3D Expo in the Roman Forum last month celebrating 150 years of the Italian Unity. He also wrote, sang and produced the song “This Is Christmas”, which has been selling well on iTunes. All proceeds are donated to an association that gives medical care to children in Madagascar.
What does Jacopo hope to do next? “I’m trying to find a way to come back to NYFA. I would really love to attend [another] program and work hard to improve my skills.”
