Joshua Daniel Hartnett was born in Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA on July 21, 1978, to Wendy Anne and Daniel Thomas Hartnett. He was brought up by his stepmother, an artist, and his building manager’s father. He has three younger half-siblings.

Early Life

Although some sources have erroneously stated that Hartnett was born in San Francisco, he was born in Saint Paul, Minnesota. He is the son of Daniel Thomas Hartnett and Wendy Anne (née Kronstadt) and was brought up by his father, who worked as a building manager, and his stepmother, Molly, who is an artist. Hartnett was raised in the Roman Catholic faith and attended Nativity of Our Lord Catholic School.

Personal Life

In 2012, Hartnett entered into a relationship with English actress Tamsin Egerton. Together, they have three children – a daughter born in 2015, a second child born in 2017, and a third child born in 2019. In November 2021, Hartnett revealed that he had married Egerton the previous year.

Regarding his experience with fame, Hartnett has stated that he understands what it’s like to be in the public eye. He was a prominent figure in the entertainment industry for a few years, but found it uncomfortable and believes that striving to stay at the top can lead to unhappiness. He took a 15-month break from acting to reflect on whether it was the right path for him.


Upon graduating from Minneapolis South High School in 1996, Hartnett relocated to New York to attend the Conservatory of Theatre Arts & Film at SUNY Purchase. However, his experience did not go as planned, and at the age of 19, he moved to Los Angeles.

After arriving in LA, he landed a role in the short-lived but highly acclaimed drama series, Cracker, on ABC. Though the show was canceled after just sixteen episodes, it helped to establish Hartnett’s name in the industry.

Following this breakthrough, Hartnett shifted his focus to feature film work. He started by performing in small plays and national television commercials before securing his first film role as the son of Jamie Lee Curtis’ character in Halloween H20: 20 Years Later. The movie was released on August 5, 1998, and performed well at the box office.
