Early Life, Childhood and Education

Diesel was born in Alameda County, California, as Mark Sinclair with his congenial twin brother, Paul. Vin was born on July 18, 1967 and his mother worked as an astrologer. Diesel has stated that he is “of unknown ethnicity.” His mother is of English, German, and Scottish ancestry.

He has never met his biological father and has stated that “all I know from my mom is that I have associations with a variety of societies.”

His Caucasian mother and African-American stepfather, Irving H. Vincent, an acting teacher and theater director, raised him in New York City.

At the age of seven, he made his acting debut due to his enthusiasm. He appeared in the play “Dinosaur Door.” It was performed at “Theatre for the New City.”


Diesel actually made his stage debut at the age of seven in Barbara Garson’s children’s play Dinosaur Door. The play was performed at Greenwich Village’s Theater for the New City. His involvement in the play came about after he, his sibling, and a few friends broke into the Theater for the New City space on Jane Street with the intent of vandalizing it.

They were confronted by the venue’s creative director, Crystal Field, who offered them a role in the upcoming show rather than calling the cops. Diesel was involved with the performance center throughout his childhood and went on to attend NYC’s Hunter College, where his interests in experimental writing led him to begin screenwriting. He considers himself to be a “multi-faceted” actor.

Vin Diesel made his film debut in 1990 with a small part in “Awakenings.” However, he received no screen credit for his performance. He was still enthusiastic about acting. Vin launched in 1994 with his short film “Multi-Facial.” In 1995, the film was accepted for screening at the “Cannes Film Festival.”

Similarly, Vin produced another film, “Strays,” in 1997. He directed, produced, wrote, and acted in the movie. The film competed at the “Sundance Film Festival.” It was a feature-length film. MTV agreed to make it into a series.

Steven Spielberg fell in love with his short film “Multi-Facial.” This incident enabled him to join Steven’s other project, “Saving Private Ryan” in 1998. In 1999, he also provided his voice for the animated film “The Iron Giant.”

In the year 2000, Vin Diesel released several films of varying genres; “Boiler Room”, a crime drama, and “Pitch Black”, a science-fiction thriller. Then came the landmark films “Fast and Furious” in 2001 and “XXX” in 2002. These films were instrumental in establishing him as an action hero. Both commercially and critically, the films were a success.

Similarly, Vin had a successful period in the mid-2000s. He shone in films such as “The Pacifier” in 2005 and “Find Me Guilty” in 2006. In 2006, he appeared as a cameo in the film “The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift.”
