HENRY SILVA BIOGRAPHY & FILMOGRAPHY:
 
Henry Silva was born on September 15th, 1928 in Brooklyn, New York and attended public school up until the age of thirteen when he then dropped out and instead chose to study drama classes.  Henry supported himself at such a young age by working as a dish washer and waiter at a local hotel.   

When 2500 applicants applied to audition for the Actors Studio, only five were chosen and he made that cut.  The first stage play he did that made it to Broadway was, "A Hatful of Rain".  After such an amazing performance, he was offered the opportunity to relocate to Hollywood and work in the film industry.
 
Some of his film work included, but was not limited to, "The Bravados" (1958), "Green Mansions" (1959), "Ocean's Eleven" (1960), The Manchurian Candidate" (1962) and "Johnny Cool" (1963).  His career was heading in the right direction and he had really caught some attention not just from Hollywood, but also the rest of the world. 
 
An Italian Producer made him an offer to relocate to Italy and work on the film, "The Hills Run Red" (1967) which was a western film where he portrayed the hero character.  It was this role that gave his career the boost he needed.  Not only was he proving himself to be a talented actor, he was also fluent in Italian and Spanish and was able to capture all types of audiences.
 
Henry did return back to America to do some more work, not only in films but also on some television appearances such as, "Alfred Hitchcock Presents" and worked with Frank Sinatra on the television movie, "Contract on Cherry Street" (1977) and "Buck Rogers in the 25th Century" (1979).  
 
Silva is a avid runner even today and remains married with his wife, Ruth Earl whom he married in 1966 and they have two sons, Michael and Scott.  Henry Silva still remains active as an actor and on occasion will take on a new project such as "Ocean's Eleven" (2011).
