      South African-born Stelio Savante is an accomplished multilingual character actor whose international theatrical feature films have grossed several hundred million dollars. Following a two decade New York theater career, he transitioned into television and film. Savante's introduction to television was a small guest star role as Gaetano in David Chase's "The Sopranos"(HBO, 1999-2006). Television audiences also began to recognize him from guest star roles in several series including "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" (NBC, 1999- ), where he worked directly opposite Mariska Hargitay and Christopher Meloni as the chilling, yet engaging fundamentalist, Milan Zergin. He landed supporting and lead roles in various films such as Russell Crowe's box office smash "A Beautiful Mind" (2001) and the Uma Thurman action comedy "My Super Ex-Girlfriend" (2006), as well as Steve on the series "Ugly Betty" (ABC, 2006-2010) for which he earned a Screen Actor's Guild (SAG) Award nomination along with the lead ensemble cast. Savante went on to star in "Eisenstein in Guanajuato" (2015), "No Postage Necessary" (2018) which he also co-produced, and "Running for Grace'' (Netflix, 2018) starring as Mayor Alvares opposite Matt Dillon and Jim Caviezel. Later ensemble leading roles are as an international journalist and Mossad agent opposite Jim Caviezel and Claudia Karvan in the political thriller "Infidel" (2020), starring opposite Frank Langella, Bobby Cannavale and Ashley Benson in the comedy "Angry Neighbors"(2022), starring opposite Anne Heche and Kellan Lutz as a small town deputy in the noir thriller "What Remains" (2022) and in Jennifer Esposito's directorial debut "Fresh Kills" (2023). He has also had the role of Moses in the series "The Chosen" (Netflix, 2019-), and The Butterfly Thug in the animated series "Captain Fall" (Netflix, 2023-). Savante has also voiced leading characters like Ajax in the video games "Call of Duty Black Ops 4" and "Black Ops Mobile."
