From good guys to bad guys, from the legendary silent film star Rudolph Valentino to junkie Corky Caporale in The Sopranos, stage and screen actor Edoardo Ballerini has had the opportunity to get under the skin of individuals both real world and fictional. Using his good looks, distinctive voice and, of course, acting talent, he always puts a new spin on every performance, and in the process manages to make each of his characters as different as possible from one another.
One of the actor’s latest gigs is a guest starring role in “A Man of My Company,” the penultimate first season episode of the hit BBC America TV series Ripper Street (airing Saturday, March 2 at 9:00 p.m. EST/PST). While Ballerini was more than comfortable walking in this particular character’s shoes, it was not the role that he initially auditioned for.
