But, like me, you may want to dive deeper than these glimpses to look closely into Delilah Fishburne’s life. I hope this guide answers all your questions about the rising star’s childhood, family life, and blossoming acting career.

Early Life and Education

Delilah Fishburne was born on the 20th of June 2007 in Los Angeles, California. Her parents, Laurence Fishburne and Jenna Torres, were already established actors in the film and TV industry. And so, she was exposed to fame from a very young age.

But it seems that her parents took extra care to keep her out of the spotlight since her birth. It’s hard to come up with pictures of her when she was just a kid! It’s also impossible to find out where she went to middle school and where she currently goes to high school. I get that it’s for safety reasons since she’s still a minor.

But we do know a bit about her hobbies since her father once mentioned her interest in theater in a 2023 interview on The View. During the production of the animated series Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur, Laurence Fishburne would bring home short clips to show his daughter.

He would ask for her opinion on background music, character design, etc., and that’s when her passion for acting started.  Another aspect I believe has shaped her love for the movie industry is that she attends premieres and other events with her father. For example, they posed together in matching yellow outfits for the 2022 Tony Awards.

The next day, they both attended The Cave of Adullam premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival and looked splendid in gray suits! It’s worth mentioning that Laurence Fishburne is the executive producer of the documentary. This makes it another critically acclaimed behind-the-camera project of his.

Acting Career and Rise to Fame

According to her father, Delilah Fishburne’s interest in the arts was piqued after going to these two events with him. After these marvelous experiences, she sang in a gospel choir and even got involved in theater at her school.

She did some minor film roles, too, both before and after appearing on the red carpet alongside her father. The year 2018 marked her debut as she appeared in the sci-fi drama film Hover. The next year, she was the lead in the horror movie The Colony, with a performance that garnered the attention of critics.

Later, in 2020, the young American actress became part of the cast for Ridley Scott’s Raised by Wolves. The HBO Max series was an instant hit both nationwide and worldwide. I’m sure the show’s fame will catapult Delilah, landing her bigger roles in the future.

Just like any celebrity child, it’ll always be challenging for Delilah to find her path in the film business away from her parents. But it seems like she’s determined to follow her passion and overcome the pressure associated with being the daughter of two big stars.

Delilah Fishburne’s Personal Life

Being almost 17, there’s not much to be found about Delilah’s personal life besides her relationship with her parents and siblings. She has a tight relationship with her father, bonding over their love for theater and acting. But she lives with her mother since Torres has custody of her after her and Laurence Fishburne’s divorce in 2017.

As for her siblings, Delilah doesn’t have other full-blooded brothers or sisters. Instead, she has a half-brother and half-sister, Langston and Montana—whom her father shares with his ex-wife Hajna O. Moss.

Langston did some acting, including the time he impersonated his dad’s character’s younger self in Ant-Man and the Wasp. He’s also a trained ballet dancer. Montana, on the other hand, is in the adult film industry. While her father wasn’t a fan of her being a porn star, he eventually managed to accept her choice.

Delilah Fishburne is the daughter of two acting beasts—Laurence Fishburne and Gina Torres. And, just like her parents, she was blown away by the film industry and is slowly forging her path to success. Soon, I’m certain she’ll follow her parents’ lead in her own unique way, and we’ll get to see more of her.

Maybe she’ll even get on social media to connect with fans and let us know about any upcoming projects.
