Salvatore Antonio was born in Toronto, Canada, as Salvatore Antonio Alessandro Migliore. After realizing very early on in his life that he was going to be an actor, Antonio auditioned, and was accepted into a High School for the Arts, just north of Toronto. It was during this time that his desire to make acting a profession was galvanized. In his final year of high school, he auditioned for the prestigious National Theatre School of Canada (considered to be the sister school to Julliard). After an extensive audition process, Salvatore was one of only eleven actors invited into the school, from more than eleven hundred who were auditioned nation-wide. He was also the first student from his High School for the Arts, to ever be accepted into highly-respected theatre school. The National Theatre School of Canada is a conservatory of classical theatre training in the European tradition, which required its students to study everything from theatre history and voice, to fencing and gymnastics in addition to the acting classes. By the time Antonio had completed the three year program, he had performed lead roles in main-stage productions of plays by great writers ranging from Shakespeare to Shaw. He had the opportunity to work some of North America and Europe's finest artists and directors, including Uta Hagen and Pierre Lefevre. Upon graduation form the conservatory, Salvatore Antonio, began working professionally in live theatre, playing on many of Canada's established stages. It was in the first few years out of school that he began venturing into television and film, following in the footsteps of fellow alumni like Colm Feore and Sandra Oh. In a relative short few years Antonio had played lead and supporting roles in feature films and episodic television, working with the likes of Dick Wolf, Russell Mulcahy and Jerry Ciccoritti. Whether on stage or screen the one quality that permeates all his work is his chameleon-like versatility when it comes to the variety of different roles he has played - a talent cultivated through his classical training. His body of work reveals an actor who can shift effortlessly from the dramatic to the comedic, often incorporating both, into a distinctly realized character.
- His high school prom date was his good friend,actress Emmanuelle Chriqui. The two remain close.
- He was originally cast in the film 'Blindness' (2008, Fernando Mereilles), but had to withdraw because of scheduling conflicts.

- Salvatore is named after an older brother who passed away, before he was born. He has an intricate tattoo on his left shoulder that honors that brother. The tattoo has been featured on screen in numerous appearances.
