"I dance with my daughter all the time," says the French actor who plays Angelo on ABC Family's "Switched At Birth" was Luc on "Brothers & Sisters" and had the steamy shower scene in the first "Sex and the City" movie. 

"For her, I would brave mountains," Marini says of his daughter, while ordering a glass of wine at an ABC party in Beverly Hills. "For her I am going to work more than I have worked in my entire life."
