Personal life[edit]

He briefly attended York University's Film & Video Programme in 1993. In 2006, Filippo married magazine editor Robin Payne,[1] and together they have a son.[2]


His best-known roles include Scott Hope in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, violinist Ethan Gold in Queer as Folk, Dom Ramone in Ready or Not and lawyer Sam Caponelli in Billable Hours, as well as the films waydowntown, The Life Before This and Lives of the Saints. He played the lead role, Roland Travis, in the short lived series Level 9. He also appeared as Johnny, an adolescent unaware of the fact that he is a ghost, in an episode of the popular Nickelodeon series Are You Afraid of the Dark?

Filippo is also active in the Toronto theatre community and focuses on writing for stage and screen. He says "I think it's just the next phase in my career."[2] He played a significant role in the "monster band", a collaborative band effort that opened Mel Lastman Square.
