Jennifer Aniston was born on February 11, 1969, in Sherman Oaks, Los Angeles, California to actors John Aniston and Nancy Dow. Her father is Greek and a native of Crete, while her mother was born in New York City. One of her maternal great-grandfathers was an Italian immigrant, and her mother’s other ancestry is Scottish, Irish, and a small amount of Greek. Aniston has two half-brothers, John Melick, her maternal older half-brother, and Alex Aniston, her younger paternal half-brother. Aniston’s godfather was actor Telly Savalas, one of her father’s best friends.
As a child, Aniston lived in Greece for a year with her family. They moved to Eddystone, Pennsylvania, then to New York City. Despite her father’s television career, Aniston was discouraged from watching TV, though she found ways around the prohibition. When she was six, Aniston began attending the Rudolf Steiner School, a Waldorf educational school that applied the Rudolf Steiner philosophy. During that time, Aniston’s father and mother split when she was nine years old.
Meanwhile, after discovering acting at eleven while attending Rudolf Steiner, Aniston enrolled and graduated at the Manhattan’s Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts, where she joined the school’s drama society.
Born in Sherman Oaks, California, Jennifer Aniston spent a year of her childhood living in Greece with her family. Her family then relocated to New York City where her parents, actors John Aniston and Nancy Dow, divorced when she was 9. Jennifer was raised by her mother and her father landed a role, as “Victor Kiriakis”, on the daytime soap “Days of Our Lives” (1965). Jennifer had her first taste of acting at age 11 when she joined the Rudolf Steiner School’s drama club. It was also at the Rudolf Steiner School that she developed her passion for art. She began her professional training as a drama student at New York’s School of Performing Arts, aka the “Fame” school. It was a division of Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music and the Arts. In 1987, after graduation, she appeared in such Off-Broadway productions as “For Dear Life” and “Dancing on Checker’s Grave”. In 1989, she landed her first television role, as a series regular on “Molloy” (1989). She also appeared in “The Edge” (1992), “Ferris Bueller” (1990), and had a recurring part on “Herman’s Head” (1991). By 1993, she was floundering. Then, in 1994, a pilot called “Friends Like These” came along. Originally asked to audition for the role of “Monica”, Aniston refused and auditioned for the role of “Rachel Green”, the suburban princess turned coffee peddler. With the success of the series “Friends” (1994), Jennifer has become famous and sought-after as she turns her fame into movie roles during the series hiatus.
