Off screen, this triple threat is just as winning as his Ugly Betty
alter ago. An aspiring performer since birth, Indelicato made his acting debut at age 8 in La Vie en Bleu
at Philadelphia's Walnut Street Theatre. He then showed off his singing skills in concert with Clay Aiken, at a New York Knicks' halftime show and on his children's album Little Maestros
. He only had two TV guest spots under his belt before landing his breakout Ugly Betty
role as the title character's fashion-loving, show-tune-singing, preteen nephew. Indelicato instantly won the hearts of viewers and — although the character's sexuality wasn't addressed directly on the show — sparked an interesting public discussion about sexual orientation in adolescents. In his spare time, Indelicato enjoys playing video games, especially Mario Kart
