Vin Diesel Biography


Mark Sinclair, better known by his professional name of Vin Diesel, was born in California in July of 1967, along with a twin brother, Paul. His mother is an astrologer and his stepfather was a theater manager and acting instructor. Diesel was raised in New York City, and began his acting career under unusual circumstances. Diesel and some friends broke into a theater to vandalize it, but when they were caught by the owner, they were offered a choice of either acting in a play, or having the owner call the police. Diesel enjoyed his acting job so much that he continued to be involved with that particular theater until he was a teenager.

Diesel worked as bouncer at some of the most popular clubs in New York to earn extra cash. It was during this time that he changed his name to Vin Diesel. His first film was a short movie called “Multi-Facial” and was presented at the Cannes Film Festival in 1995. Diesel was cast in Saving Private Ryan, by Steven Spielberg. He has since starred in numerous blockbuster movies including xXx, The Chronicles of Riddick, and the Fast and Furious franchise, which now has 7 films to the series. Diesel often serves as producer or executive producer for many of his films, which gives him huge earning potential. Diesel made a very smart move while making a cameo appearance in Fast and Furious 3: Tokoyo Drift; rather than be paid for his part acting, he asked for the full rights to the character Riddick. Diesel and his production company, One Race, own the Riddick character, which, over time, can mean untold million in earnings.

Diesel likes to keep his personal life private but has made it no secret that he loves the Dominican Republic and has played Dungeons & Dragons for more than 20 years. Diesel has a current net worth of $75 million and with three more movies already in the works, his earning potential and net worth is sure to increase substantially.
