Riccardo Dario Scamarcio (Italian pronunciation: [rikˈkardo skaˈmartʃo] ; born 13 November 1979) is an Italian film actor and film producer.
Scamarcio was born in Trani, Apulia, the son of Irene Petrafesa, a painter, and Emilio Scamarcio.
He went to train as an actor at the Scuola Nazionale di Cinema in Rome, where he now lives. His debut acting role was in a TV series in 2000, while his first ever lead role in a feature film was in Three Steps Over Heaven (2004), directed by Luca Lucini. Through this he immediately became well known to the Italian speaking public, especially a young audience. His success brought him prominence as a sex symbol and boosted requests for his acting skills, leading to his role in Texas (2005), directed by Fausto Paravidino and soon to him joining the cast of Romanzo Criminale , playing a monosyllabic, enigmatic thug character in a powerful portrait of a mafiosi community directed by Michele Placido.
In 2006 he acted in The Black Arrow, a TV series broadcast by Canale 5, adapted from the novel by Robert Louis Stevenson, and took on four new film roles: My Brother Is an Only Child (2007), directed by Daniele Luchetti, based on the novel Il fasciocomunista by Antonio Pennacchi. Scamarcio won a David di Donatello nomination for Best Supporting Actor for this work. He also played in Manual of Love 2 (2007), directed by Giovanni Veronesi, Ho voglia di te (2007), directed by Luis Prieto, and Go Go Tales (2007), directed by Abel Ferrara.
In 2007 he began work on At a Glance (2008) directed by Sergio Rubini, Italians (2009), a comedy directed by Giovanni Veronesi, and The Big Dream (2009), set in Italy in 1968, directed by Michele Placido. Eden à l'Ouest, directed by Costa-Gavras, saw Scamarcio playing an illegal immigrant-cum-innocent abroad. The Cézanne Affair (2009), directed by Sergio Rubini, co-starred Scamarcio's partner, Italian-Greek actress Valeria Golino, who plays his sister.
He also starred in John Wick: Chapter 2 , playing the Italian Mob boss Santino D'Antonio, the antagonist in the film.
