Childhood and Family of Jesse Eisenberg

Jesse was born in 1983 in the suburb of New York City, Queens. His ancestors are Polish and Ukrainian Jews.

Jesse was the only boy in the family, but his sisters played with him: Kerri (the older sister) and Hallie (the younger sister). Jesse became interested in acting because of his sister Hallie who often starred in commercials. At the age of 7, he made his debut in the children's musical Oliver!, having played the lead role of Oliver Twist, an orphan in the Victorian era.

At the age of 13, Jesse became a member of the teen pop band The Broadway Kids, and soon he and his bandmates were lucky enough to get to the big Broadway stage. Jesse was an understudy in the production of Summer and Smoke by Tennessee Williams. Being a member of the band, he almost did not sing (he sometimes acted as a backing vocalist) but enthusiastically played the drum kit and even attended the relevant class of the music school.
