Rosario Dawson and her Uncle Frank

Born and raised in NYC, Rosario began her film career by accident when she was cast off the street to act in the 1995 indie production Kids. The film propelled Rosario in the acting world. She went on to attend the Lee Strasberg Theater Institute and soon after started appearing in movies such as "He Got Game", "Josie and the Pussycats", "Men in Black II", "The Adventures of Pluto Nash", "25th Hour", "Alexander", "Sin City" and "RENT".

At the age of 16, while in high school, Rosario decided to live with Uncle Frank and partner Vincenzo Aiosa. Frank is photographer/ composer (see his work at and a NYC Public School Teacher. Rosario has great memories of living with Frank and Vincenzo, who -by the way- got married in Toronto in 2004. Frank has been a great influence in her life and she treasures their relationship tremendously.
