In an ever-changing landscape that is Hollywood, the only thing that is constant is family. Having someone to stand by you through ups and downs is one of the greatest gifts of life and we are sure Leah Remini will testify to it. The actress who starred as Carrie Heffernan on the long-running CBS sitcom The King of Queens (1998–2007) and as Vanessa Celluci in the CBS sitcom Kevin Can Wait (2017–2018), has found her strength mirrored in her husband, Angelo Pagan. The duo’s battle against Scientology has been a subject of much coverage and the pair have been together through it all. While Remini gets most of the media attention, Pagan has been a constant rock by her side. So, for this article, we will take a closer look at the wiki-bio of Angelo Pagan.
Angelo Pagan was born on the 16th of May, 1968, in Peurto Rico. Born in a military household, Pagan’s father is a military veteran who served during the Korean War.

After graduating from his local high school, Pagan continued through his education and later enrolled at the City College of San Francisco in California.
During his early years, Pagan was offered modeling contracts for commercials and was scouted for his good looks. And while Pagan had an interest in acting, his career took a different direction and he began with music. He began his musical journey with the band, Salsa Caliente.
