Amanda Sorvino was Born in April 1971

Amanda Sorvino is 51 years old. On April 18, 1971, the actress and writer was born in Manhattan, New York, as the daughter of Paul Sorvino and Lorraine Ruth Davis. She was born on the cusp of the zodiac sign, Aries, and throughout her career, Amanda has shown the courage, confidence, passion, and determination that Aries signs are known for.

Amanda Sorvino is also not an only child but is the second daughter of her parents – she also has a brother, Michael. After graduating from an elite high school in Manhattan, Amanda continued her education there at a private university. However, the names of the institutions she attended for her education – and the degrees she acquired from them are not available.

Sorvino started showing glimpses of her potential at a young age. Right from when she was very young, she began writing and acting. Her parents were very supportive and were known to consistently encourage their young daughter throughout her work as she slowly found her passion.

Amanda Sorvino’s Career is Much Less Mainstream than Her Father’s

In case you didn’t know, Paul Sorvino was an accomplished actor, opera singer, businessman, writer, and sculptor. That much was recorded in his Wikipedia profile. He gained popularity due to his role in the 1990 gangster movie Goodfellas and his career blew up after that. On the other hand, Amanda has had a much quieter career than her late father.

Many of the stories Amanda Sorvino has written by hand have been recognized by famous celebrities. After writing (and also appearing in) the 2012 drama The Trouble with Cali, Amanda became popular. As a screenwriter and actress, she has written other works, including Midlife (2015) and The Wind in the Reeds (2017) – according to her IMDb biography.

Her siblings – Mira and Michael – are also in the spotlight with careers in the entertainment industry, thus creating a legacy for their father’s name in Hollywood. It is heartwarming to see how Amanda (to an extent) and her siblings are trying to keep their father’s legacy alive after the veteran actor passed away on July 25, 2022, at the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida, at the age of 83.

Amanda Sorvino is an Animal Lover

Amanda Sorvino also has a passion for animals and leads animal rescue missions. Her socials are littered with pictures of her beloved animals. She runs an animal shelter where she keeps the rescued animals, providing food and medical care for them as needed. Her love for these animals knows no bounds, and she does not appear to have any limit to what type of animal she caters to. On her farm are mostly horses, goats, sheep and dogs, and many others.

Meet Amanda Sorvino’s Siblings

Besides her father being a very talented American actor, Amanda Sorvino has two other siblings. And like her father, her siblings are also television stars. It will interest you to know that all of Amanda Sorvino’s siblings are well-known actors in America, both famous for various achievements.

Her elder sister, Mira Sorvino, is a famous veteran actress who has won the Academy Award and Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress for her performance in the Woody Allen film Mighty Aphrodite. Her other acting credits include Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion (1997), Mimic (1997), Lulu on the Bridge (1998), The Replacement Killers (1998), Summer of Sam (1999), and Like Dandelion Dust (2000).

Mira has received two Golden Globe nominations—one for Best Actress in a Miniseries and the other for Best Actress in a Television Film. She famously portrayed Marilyn Monroe in Norma Jean & Marilyn (1996) and was nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie for her performance.

Mira isn’t just popular for her acting, her love life is getting a lot of attention as well. Between 1996 and 1998, she was rumored to have had a romantic relationship with legendary movie director Quentin Tarantino. Tarantino was Mira’s escort to the Academy Awards ceremony, where she won Best Supporting Actress for her role in Mighty Aphrodite.
