RIP : Romano Giomini

Italian actor Romano Gemini died on March 1. He was born in 1936. He starred in many films in the 1960s, a lot of them PEPLUM productions. He was mainly known for his recurring role in the Ten Gladiators films. He was charismatic and was always goofing around, in good spirits. This blog was the first to identify him on the internet 5 years ago with IDENTIFYING THE TEN GLADIATORS. People confused him with other actors, or he wasn't listed at all, which is why I made that post.

I have also seen him in Spaghetti Westerns and EURO Spy Movies, he also played several Italian Cops and Mobster Movies. He seemed to be very versital as an actor even if many of his parts were not lead roles- a good supporting character actor.
