Lenny Ciotti
"Dr. Martelli"
I was born and raised in Italy. I started acting professionally at the age of twelve. In Italy I worked for several musicals and straight plays, before landing a job as a TV show host for RAI, Italy's national television and right after that, I starred in a sit-com, still with RAI. I moved to New York City in 2007 to attend the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute. Since I came to New York I have been working in off-Broadway theatre, voice overs and short films.  I have done a lot of Shakespeare, plenty of contemporary plays, some musicals. I am currently enrolled at the Upright Citizen's Brigade school to improve my improv skills. Recently I started working as a teacher's assistant in the Strassberg young actors program, as well as teaching acting to the children at St. Paul's church in Harlem.
