Nico Sansouzi was a child star in Italy, basically in the Italian version of the “Mickey Mouse Club.” She was scouted and acted in commercials and films through her early teens, traveling all through Europe whist being tutored on set, which accounts for her fluency in six languages. She took a break to study economics before moving to London and returning, now, to her first love, acting. I met her while I was working on a music video for The Shoes song “Time to Dance,” which stars Jake Gyllenhaal, and for which she was, once again, street cast. Yep, she still has that something special that stops people in their tracks.
