Biography

Scottish actor of stage, screen and TV. This wry, velvet voiced Scottish-Italian trained as a classical pianist at the Glasgow's Royal Scottish Academy of Music and later took up acting at the Glasgow College of Drama. He entered theatre, receiving a breakthrough role in "The Black and White Minstrels," in 1972 and the play "Savages." Conti's popularity increased with the TV series "Glittering Prizes," and on-stage in "Whose Life is it Anyway?" His portrayal as a drunk poet in "Rueben, Rueben" boosted his profile and led to an Academy Award nomination. Unfortunately a string of unsuccessful romantic farces followed. In February 1994, he opened in the West End in Neil Simon's comedy, "Chapter Two."

Conti is married to actress Kara Wilson and their daughter, Nina Conti (b. late 1973), began her acting career on stage in the Spring of 1996 in "Sugar Dollies."
