A SUCCESSFUL ACTRESS IN HER OWN RIGHT
Born on April 17, 1990, in New York, Gia moved to Los Angeles when she was just a baby. Growing up, she took ballet lessons and also trained as a gymnast.
Gia chose to walk on her father's footsteps to become an actress. At 13, she made her debut as an actress in "Uncle Nino" which was released in 2003.
Gia made a guest appearance in the hit crime drama "Criminal Minds" in 2008 where she played the role of Lindsey Vaughn alongside her father, Joe.
Her other notable works include "The Middle," "Under the Dome," "Getting That Girl," "Gigantic," and "Apartment 143."
GIA HAS AN AUTISTIC SISTER WHO IS A MAKEUP ARTIST
Mia Mantegna, Gia's elder sister, is a makeup artist. When she was a little girl, her parents noticed that her speech was different than the kids her age and she lacked focus. So they took her to a neurologist for a diagnosis.
Joe and Arlene were shocked to discover that their daughter has autism.
"I remember it hit my wife and me like a ton of bricks, because, first of all, it was just a word we had heard about," Joe said.
Despite the diagnosis, the Mantegna family was determined to give their daughter a normal life. After they met a teacher who had a sister with autism, their perspective about the disease changed a little and they were willing to help Mia in every way possible.
During her first day at school, the teacher walked in front of the class and said:
"This is Mia. She's going to be a little different than the rest of you kids. She might start singing to herself, she might walk up to the blackboard, she may talk to herself, she may say some inappropriate things. It doesn't matter. She has autism. And we're all going to help her."
Joe and Arlene were beyond happy to have found an empathetic teacher. Mia went on to attend the Mudd School, where she took her love for makeup to the next level.
Today, Gia is the makeup artist for Inclusion Films, a group that teaches young adults with disabilities about the film business.
