Dell'Acqua, Ottaviano

Post by PeplumParadise » 03/04/2021, 14:16

Ottaviano Dell'Acqua in Lo chiamavano Bulldozer (1978)

Alias: Richard Raymond.

The youngest of the Dell'Acqua family by many years, Ottaviano is a stuntman, actor and Master of arms active in Italian films from the late 60's and still working as of 2021.

He was born in Rome on March 13th 1955. He is 17 years younger than brothers Alberto and Arnaldo and 9 years younger than Roberto (sister Fernanda's birth date is unknown). At the time of writing he is still living.

He began his career as a child in westerns in the late 60's, moving into teenage-thug roles in the 70's and graduating into the stunt work that was the family profession.

I am not at all familiar with Ottaviano due to his having began his career after the decline of peplums, so I have started his topic with just a handful of titles with many more to be added.

With the psudonym of Richard Raymond in Fulci's Zombi 3 (1988) as Roger.
From the mid of the eighties, Ottaviano becomes an interesting protagonist of some action and horror films. Here he appears in one of his most famous ones, with a character who in the ending even pays homage to Willem Dafoe's interpretation in Platoon.

Another great starring role in Bruno Mattei's cult sci-fi horror Rats - Notte di terrore (1984) as Kurt, the commander.
