Steven Vincent Buscemi aka Steve is an American actor who had played the biggest role in the aftermath of 9/11 and kept it as secret all these years. 15 years have passed and 15 times we've mourned for those who lost their lives in 9/11 attacks.
We bring you the untold story of Steve Buscemi.
Scroll below to know the facts!
Before his acting career actually began, nobody knows that he was working as Fire Fighter in Lower Manhattan.
343 firefighters died in order to save thousands of people from the attacks of 9/11 and its aftermath.
He is currently living in Brooklyn and as it is said that a man should never forget his roots. He is part of Board of Advisors for 'Friends of firefighters', an organization that looks for the welfare of New York's firefighter families.
He worked in a 12 hours shift as a firefighter. He was digging deep through the rubble looking for the survivors.
You can find his name in the documentation of firefighters of NY during the attacks of 9/11, but you'll never find his interview and media interaction because he did that to help humanity and not for publicity.
In 2003 at the Union rally for firefighters, he gave a speech in which he demanded higher wages for firefighters. He was sent to jail for that speech.
In 2012 when storm Sandy had spread a lot of destruction around, brother Buscemi quietly assisted the mass in settling down.
In short, all we are trying to say is he is badass! Every year on 9/11 we mourn for those who died, but this guy deserves a huge round of applause for his passion and generosity.
