Fondacaro, Phil

Phil Fondacaro

Phil Fondacaro was born on November 8, 1958, in New Orleans, Louisiana, US.  Phil is the brother of actor (and SWAD alum) Sal Fondacaro.

Phil started his career off in 1980 when they put a call out to all little people to be in a film (Under the Rainbow), he and his brother Sal tried out and got parts in the film with SWAD alum Carrie Fisher.  One of Fondacaro's favorite roles was as a dwarf father with an average-sized son in Touched By An Angel.  He was originally thought of for the role of the Leprechaun, in the movie of the same name, but he turned it down.  The part went to SWAD alum Warwick Davis.

Fondacaro is known for his mustache and...sometimes beard.

Married (2001 - present) to Elena Bertagnolli (Verne Troyer's manager) who owns Fonolli Management (where Mr. Fondacaro is represented) and they live in Santa Clarita, CA.
