RED HOOK, N.Y. -- Happy birthday to Red Hook's Giancarlo Esposito.

Giancarlo, of Red Hook, turns 59 on Thursday.

Giancarlo Giuseppe Alessandro Esposito, who was born on April 26, 1958, is an American actor and director.

Esposito was born in Copenhagen, Denmark, the son of an Italian father, Giovanni Esposito, and an American mother, Elizabeth Foster.

His mother was an African-American opera and nightclub singer from Alabama, and his father was a stagehand and carpenter from Naples. Esposito lived in Europe until the age of six, when his family settled in Manhattan. He attended Elizabeth Seton College in New York and received a two-year degree in radio and television communications.

Esposito is best known for his portrayal of Gustavo "Gus" Fring on the AMC series "Breaking Bad," for which he won the Best Supporting Actor in a Drama award at the 2012 Critics' Choice Television Awards and was nominated for an Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series award at the 2012 Primetime Emmy Awards.

He is well-known for his roles in Spike Lee films, such as "Do the Right Thing," "School Daze," and "Mo' Better Blues." Other notable films include "The Usual Suspects" and "King of New York." He has portrayed Sidney Glass/Magic Mirror on ABC's "Once Upon a Time" and Major Tom Neville in the NBC series "Revolution."
