Joe Mantegna’s Silver Hair Receives Compliments in New Photo with Grownup Daughter Gia
Joe Mantegna’s daughter, Gia, recently posted a photo with her father, who attracted positive comments because of his attractive silver hair.
Joe Mantegna looks stunning in silver hair, as seen in the recent post of his daughter, Gia Mantega. Fans of the “Criminal Minds” star complimented him on the comments section of the post, saying they “love the silver hair.”
Gia posted the photo, featuring her, her father, and Brianne Tju, with the caption: “JOE MANTEGNA ADOPTS ASIAN DAUGHTER WHO FALLS IN LOVE WITH HIS SECOND BORN.”
Like her father, Gia followed in the entertainment industry and became an actress. Her most notable role is Devin Levin in the sitcom “The Middle,” but her career’s beginning dates back to 2003 where she appeared in the film “Uncle Nino.”
She also made appearances in “13 Going on 30,” and “Unaccompanied Minors.” In 2008, she played alongside her father in the hit show, “Criminal Minds,” where she took on the character of Lindsey Vaughn.
Her talents came into notice as she became the 2011 Miss Golden Globe for the 68th Annual Golden Globe Award Ceremony. She also had a nomination for Best Young Ensemble in her feature film for “Unaccompanied Minors.”
Gia certainly got her mad acting skills from her father who played many significant roles in movies. However, unlike his daughter, Mantegna did not start his career on a smooth path and instead struggled to get to where he is today.
Mantegna is most recently known for his role in the long-running hit series, “Criminal Minds,” where he played the character of David Rossi for 12 long years. Sadly, the show has reached its curtain call. He, along with his co-stars, recently took to social media to share their sentiments about the shows end.
“As I wrap up my last day filming ‘Criminal Minds,’ I can’t help but reflect in awe at what a truly wonderful experience it has been. As you know, I came to a show already in production. I was welcomed by the cast and crew instantly, making me feel part of the team on day one,” he wrote.
The actor shared that apart from missing the character he played for over a decade, he will miss the cast and crew that turned into family along the way. He added:
“We laughed together, we cried together, and like family, we gained and lost members along the way. Some got married, some got divorced, some had children, some had more than one!”
He ended his farewell letter by thanking the fans who they “owe it all” to, for being “loyal, tolerant, and passionate,” and for allowing the show to continue for many seasons and many years. Despite the show’s end, Mantegna’s career will still flourish, and perhaps his fans will see him on the big screen again.
