Mini Bio (1)

Carlo Rota recently made the move from Canada to Los Angeles to advance his acting career in the United States. He is best known to American audiences for his five seasons as Mick Schtoppel on the USA Network's smash hit La Femme Nikita (1997). Joel Surnow, executive producer of the show, created this role specifically for him, and then moved along to create Carlo's role on 24 (2001). He also appeared on Showtime's Queer as Folk (2000), The Boondock Saints (1999) and numerous other television shows and movies.

Carlo is well-traveled. Born in London and raised in Italy, Hong Kong, the Bahamas and Canada, his father, an internationally renowned chef, instilled in him a passion for fine cuisine. This led to Carlo co-creating, hosting and directing a popular documentary-styled show on Canada's Food Network for five seasons. His other interests include trivia, motorcycles and learning to embrace the California lifestyle.
