Do you know Who is Aleksa Palladino?
Aleksa Federici Palladino was born on September 21, 1980, in Manhattan, New York City, USA. She is a singer and actress best known for her roles in various films and television series, most notably “Boardwalk Empire,” “Before the Devil Know You’re Dead,” and “The Adventures of Sebastian Cole.”
Crystal was raised in a Southern Baptist home by her father, a televangelist who traveled across the United States. She developed an early interest in both singing and acting, and she began singing gospel songs with her elder sister. When they were eight years old, they recorded a song and frequently performed with their two younger sisters.
She grew up in Houston, Texas, and studied acting at the Alley Theatre. She attended Spring High School and, after graduation, Baylor University, where she studied acting and international relations. In 1982, she landed one of her first primetime television roles in the popular TV sitcom “Happy Days,” where she played KC Cunningham during the show’s tenth season, alongside Ron Howard, Henry Winkler, Tom Bosley, and Marion Ross. She went on to make guest appearances on other popular television shows after her appearance there.
Aleksa is of Italian descent through her mother, whose parents immigrated to the United States, but little is known about her childhood and her path to becoming an actress. She made her acting debut at the age of 14 in the 1996 comedy-drama film “Manny & Lo,” in which she played the 16-year-old Lo in a film co-starring Scarlett Johansson. A year later, she co-starred in her first feature film, “Number One Fan,” with Glenn Fitzgerald.
She would appear in several minor roles over the next few years before starring alongside Adrian Grenier in “The Adventures of Sebastian Cole,” a comedy-drama written and directed by Todd Williams and released in 1999.
The following year, she appeared in the independent film “Lonesome” before starring alongside Selma Blair in “Storytelling,” which premiered as part of the Un Certain Regard section of the 2001 Cannes Film Festival. Her consistent work would lead her to make guest appearances in several popular television shows, including the original “Law & Order,” “Law & Order: Criminal Intent,” and “The Sopranos,” in which she played two characters.
In 2004, Palladino made a guest appearance in “Medium,” before being cast in a supporting role in “Find Me Guilty,” alongside Vin Diesel, Peter Dinklage, and Ron Silver, the film being based on the longest Mafia trial in Following her work on that project, she was offered a role in “Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead,” a 2007 film that goes back and forth in time and is considered one of the most influential of the year, as well as Sidney Lumet’s final feature film before his death.
Palladino’s next film project would be “The Picture of Dorian Gray,” based on Oscar Wilde’s only novel, which had proven to be very controversial, showing strong themes that offended numerous British readers and book reviewers, despite being heavily censored by the editor of the magazine in which it was first published, without Wilde’s knowledge. Following that project, Aleksa was cast in the horror film “Wrong Turn 2: Dead End,” the second installment of the “Wrong Turn” series and widely regarded as the best.
She has a net worth of $5 million.
Palladino married musician Devon Church in 2003, after meeting through the formation of Exitmusic.
