In addition to his television and film work, Juliani frequently appears on stage, both in Vancouver (where he has earned multiple nominations for Vancouver theatre’s “Jessie” awards) and elsewhere.

In 2003, the 1978 television series, Battlestar Galactica was brought back to the small screen, in what was termed a “reimagined” form, as a three hour miniseries. The project was written and produced by Ronald D. Moore and directed by Michael Rymer. Alessandro Juliani starred as Felix Gaeta, a Lieutenant in the Colonial Fleet, in the reimagined Battlestar Galactica. The Miniseries effectively served as pilot for a potential TV show. A TV series was commissioned in a collaborative effort between the Sci Fi Channel (United States) and Sky TV (the British broadcaster). In the episode “Guess What’s coming to Dinner” (season 4, episode 7), Alessandro’s vocal skills were featured prominently. His character’s singing is explained as a method of dealing with the pain of loss. His voice, however, is heard often when flashing through other scenes and characters.
In March 2009, Juliani won the Streamy Award for Best Male Actor in a Dramatic Web Series for his work on Battlestar Galactica: The Face of the Enemy
