Gianrico Tedeschi was an Italian theater, cinema and television actor.

Tedeschi got a degree in pedagogy before enrolling at the Silvio D'Amico National Academy of Dramatic Art, which he abandoned after two years to make his professional debut with the Evi Maltagliati-Salvo Randone-Tino Carraro stage company. In the late 1940s he entered the Andreina Pagnani-Gino Cervi theatrical company, with whom he got his first personal success for his performance in the comedy play Quel signore che venne a pranzo. He later worked intensively with Luchino Visconti and with the Piccolo Teatro directed by Giorgio Strehler. He also toured in the United States, the Soviet Union, Paris and London.

In his variegated career, Tedeschi was very active as a voice actor, a dubber and a radio personality, and starting from the early 1950s he appeared in numerous films and TV series, even if often playing supporting roles. He appeared in 50 films between 1943 and 2013.
