Bio

Paolo Seganti is an Italian actor and model best known for his role as Damian Grimaldi in the television soap opera As the World Turns, from 1993-2010.

Milan-born Seganti rejoined the cast of As the World Turns in March of 2009. He previously played the role from 1993-1996 and made brief returns to the show in 1997, 2001 and 2006. In 1995 he was nominated for a Soap Opera Digest Award for Hottest Male Star. In 1997, he was nominated for two more Soap Opera Digest Awards.

As the middle child of five brothers growing up in Italy, Seganti first found the spotlight in a boxing ring, earning three Italian junior championships by the time he was 15. It was in the boxing ring that he was discovered by a fashion photographer.

He went on to launch a career as a print and runway model, working with renowned photographers such as Bruce Weber, supermodels Cindy Crawford and Linda Evangelista and designers including Calvin Klein, Versace and Yves Saint Laurent.

When Seganti made his American daytime television debut on As the World Turns in 1993, he had already completed a high-profile supporting role as Johnny Stompanato in the critically acclaimed film L.A. Confidential.

His other film credits include Canera: The Walking Mountain, Signora, L'americain, Tea with Mussolini, Woody Allens' Everyone Says I Love You and Still Breathing. He also starred in Bye Bye Sally directed by former As The World Turns co-star Paul Leyden.

During his time away from Oakdale, Seganti has worked steadily in film, theatre and television all over the world, including as the lead in the international hit show Largo Winch for two seasons.

He executive produced the award-winning 2000 documentary Dark Days and made appearances on shows such as Eyes, The Closer, Related and ER.
