Hailee Steinfeld’s Ethnicity, Nationality and Parents

Hailee Steinfeld’s ethnicity is a mix of a wide range of ethnic identities, including Filipino Asian, British Isles, German, and African American from her mother Cheri Steinfeld’s side. She is also Ashkenazi Jewish through her father, Peter Steinfeld. Nonetheless, the Hawkeye actress is an American citizen by birth, having been born in Tarzana, California, United States.

Steinfeld, who is also a singer and a model, began her acting career at the age of 10 and has caught the attention of the public through her stirring performances in movies and TV series such as True Grit, Ender’s Game, and of course, Hawkeye. Those performances have earned her several accolades and recognition, which has led to further interest in her ethnic identity and nationality from the media and the general public. Let’s explore those aspects of her identity.

Haile Steinfeld was Born and Raised in California

Hailee Steinfeld was born in Tarzana, California, United States, on December 11, 1996. The aforementioned facts about the actress mean that she is 26 years old and has access to all the rights, privileges, and responsibilities reserved for an American citizen.

Steinfeld, who first grew up in Agoura Hills, and later in Thousand Oaks, California, grew up with an older brother named Griffin Steinfeld. She attended Ascension Lutheran School, Conejo Elementary, and Colina Middle School. She was then home-schooled from 2008 until she earned her high school diploma in June 2015.

While the details of Steinfeld’s national identity are pretty much straightforward in the larger sense of things, the same can not be said about the Edge of Seventeen actress’ ethnic identity, much of which is widely varied. For starters, her father is Ashkenazi Jewish, but it is on her mother’s side where that aspect of her identity gets even more complicated.

Her Christian mother adds several elements of Filipino Asian, African American, German, and British Isles roots to Hailee’s ethnic makeup. Her Filipino and African and American roots come from her maternal grandfather, Ricardo Domasin, who was half Filipino (from Panglao, Bohol), and half African-American, while the German, English, Scots-Irish/Northern Irish, and Scottish bits come from her maternal grandmother.

Who is Hailee Steinfeld’s Mom?

Hailee Steinfeld’s mother is a woman named Cheri Steinfeld, née Domasin. The celebrity mom was born on March 21, 1961, and has a few things in common with her daughter in the sense that they were both born and raised in California despite the variances in their ancestry and national heritage.

Aside from the fact that we know that her father was Ricardo Domasin, not much is known about Cheri’s early life, including who her mother was, as well as whether she grew up with any siblings. She has also yet to let the media and the general public in on the details of her formal educational background, but she appears to be sufficiently educated and armed with the intellectual capabilities to assume the role of her daughter Hailee’s manager.

Before assuming that very important responsibility in her daughter’s life and career, Cheri Steinfeld was an interior designer who always gave her clients the best, and it appears she carried over that work ethic when she became Hailee’s manager.

Meet Hailee Steinfeld’s Dad

Hailee Steinfeld will always be Peter Steinfeld’s little girl. As previously mentioned, the actress is the youngest of two children born to her parents. Several reliable sources have confirmed that Peter Steinfeld is a personal trainer and an actor who appeared in three episodes of the TV series, Married With Children.

It would seem that for all their ethnic differences, neither of Hailee’s parents was born outside the United States. Sources close to the family confirm that her Ashkenazi Jewish father was born and raised in New Jersey, United States, a fact that confirms his status as an American citizen by birth.

Peter Steinfeld is one of two children born to Herbert Steinfeld and Joy Steinfeld. He has an older brother named Jake Steinfeld, who is also a fitness trainer and an actor who has been involved in more than a dozen movies and TV series projects.

Aside from his movie engagements, fitness training schedules, and being a dad to Hailee Steinfeld and her brother, Peter Steinfeld keeps a rather low profile, a situation that has left several people in the dark regarding his academic qualifications. Although, he does come across like someone who at least has a high school diploma.

Hailee Steinfeld’s Parents Have Been Married For Around Three Decades

The Bumblebee actress never has to search too hard for role models when it comes to having a lasting marital relationship. Her parents would gladly fill that position for her, should she demand it, seeing as they have been a married couple for around three decades now.

It is important to point out that not much is known about this union, including when they met, started dating, and eventually exchanged marital vows. The assumption that they have been married for around 30 years was arrived at based on the age of their firstborn, Hailee’s older brother, Griffin, whom sources confirm was born on January 9, 1994. It is also believed that they were already man and wife when they had their son – who is now 29 years old.

She Has A Good Relationship With Her Parents

Nothing strengthens the resolve and passion of a person like knowing that you have the unalloyed support and backing of your loved ones in your chosen field of endeavor. Hailee Steinfeld’s acting career was built on the foundation of a lifetime of love, support, and encouragement she received from her family, especially her parents.

Her dad has always had her back and has been pictured alongside her on the red carpet on a few occasions. His skills as a personal trainer were on show through the actress in her role as Kate Bishop on Disney+’s Hawkeye. Long before she became her daughter’s manager, Cheri Steinfeld’s support for her daughter was evidenced by her words of encouragement.

According to the actress, the suggestion to take up acting had come from her mother with certain stipulations, including making sure she didn’t embark on that journey without adequate preparation. She ensured that the actress took acting classes, which helped her home her latent acting skills.

Steinfeld also revealed that her mom made sure she was consistent in attending those classes before becoming her chauffeur to all the auditions she attended while trying to hit it big in Hollywood.

Hailee Steinfeld’s relative rise to the top of her career and subsequent attraction to the spotlight has not altered the dynamic of the loving, caring, and supporting nature of the relationship that exists between the actress and her family members, including her parents and only sibling.
