Vin Diesel was born in New York City on July 18, 1967, to Delora Sherleen Vincent, who works as an astrologer. His biological father’s identity is unknown to him, but he was raised by his African-American stepfather, Irving H. Vincent. Irving is an acting instructor and theater manager.

Early Life

Diesel’s birth name is Mark Sinclair, and he was born on July 18, 1967, in Alameda County, California, where his mother was also born. Diesel and his twin brother, Paul, were later raised in New York City. His mother, Delora Sherleen Vincent (née Sinclair), works as an astrologer.

Personal Life

According to Diesel, he chooses to keep his personal life private and does not intend to reveal it on a magazine cover like some other actors do. He follows the code of silence practiced by actors such as Harrison Ford, Marlon Brando, Robert De Niro, and Al Pacino.


In 1990, Diesel made his first film appearance in a small uncredited role in the drama film “Awakenings”. However, he struggled to secure acting roles for several years afterward. To raise funds for his debut feature film, Diesel took matters into his own hands and created a short film.

In 1994, Diesel took on multiple roles as the writer, director, producer, and lead actor in the semi-autobiographical short drama film “Multi-Facial”. The film depicts the struggles of a multiracial actor stuck in the audition process. The film’s screening at the 1995 Cannes Festival helped to garner recognition for Diesel’s work.
