Samuel Joseph Mozes is an American celebrity child who became famous due to his familial relationship with popular as the son of Cynthia Nixon, the American actress and LGBTQ activist. Mozes is the first son of the actress who is easily recognizable for her acting role in the HBO series Sex and The City.
Besides being the son of a celebrity, Mozes also attracted media attention after revealing the truth behind his sexuality. That curiosity led to a massive desire to know all about Cynthia Nixon’s son with her ex-partner.
Samuel Joseph Mozes was Born in 1996
Samuel Joseph Mozes is currently 25 years old, as he was born on November 8, 1996, under the birth sign of Scorpio, in New York City, United States of America. The celebrity child enjoys the rights and privileges of an American citizen, which derive from his birth status in the country. Samuel belongs to the Caucasian ethnic group.
As previously mentioned, Samuel is the son of Cynthia Nixon, whom she had with her ex-long-time partner, Danny Mozes, before their separation in the early 2000s. Seph, as Samuel Joseph is fondly called, bore witness to the break up of his parents’ union when he was only seven years old.
His Father Used To Be A School Teacher
Danny Mozes, Samuel’s dad, used to be a school teacher where he met his wife, Cynthia Nixon. Samuel Joseph Mozes’s parents initially had a teacher-student relationship before their relationship blossomed into something more serious and romantic in nature.
They started dating in 1988, and it was a relationship that continued over the next decade and a half. There is no record of any wedding date, but certain sources claim that the former couple was married. They continued their relationship, and after they had Samuel Joseph in 1996, they also had his younger brother, Charles Ezekiel Mozes. The celebrity kid’s brother, Charles Ezekiel Mozes, was born in 2002, just a year before his parents cut short their fifteen-year union.
Not long after she split from Danny Mozes, Samuel’s mother began a romantic relationship with her current partner, Christine Marinoni. Records show that Cynthia’s romantic dalliance with Christine, a gay rights activist, is the first time the actress had engaged in a romantic affair with a woman. It also appears to be going well because since the lesbian couple became an item in 2004, they have remained together as a family.
As a result of his parents’ split, Samuel and his brother, Charles, have since lived with her mother and her new gay partner. Alongside his new family, Seph also welcomed a new baby step-brother. Max Ellington Nixon Marinoni was reportedly born in 2011, and in 2012, Samuel Joseph’s mother and her new lesbian lover tied the knot, eight years after their relationship began.
Samuel Joseph Mozes Worked As An Assistant Theatre Director
Details of Samuel Joseph Mozes’ early formal education background are not something the public or the media knows too much about. It is well known that he has a high school diploma from a high school most likely located in his home city, New York City.
Afterward, the celebrity kid proceeded to the University of Chicago. After spending the required amount of time at the institution, he graduated with a degree in English Literature and Poetry.
Close sources to the celebrity kid have revealed that after he graduated from the University of Chicago, he disclosed his intentions to further his studies by acquiring a master’s degree in English Literature and Poetry. The reason behind this decision was revealed to be a desire to pursue a career as a creative writer and a published author.
While the jury remains out on those disclosed intentions, a summary of his bio on Writers Theatre revealed that Seph is a dramaturg and director who was previously a literary intern at Northlight Theatre and Writers Theatre. He reportedly served as an assistant director to Jess McLeod on Landladies, a Northlight Theatre production.
He then served as assistant director on a Redtwist production of King Lear. Samuel Joseph Mozes’ fledgling career has also seen him work in the Outreach Department of Steppenwolf Theatre Company. However, the career bio on Samuel Joseph Mozes is reported to be correct as of 2019, and not much is known since then. However, it would seem that his artistic abilities are currently limited to the theatre.
It would also appear that the nearly three decades old celebrity kid is following in the footsteps of his talented mother, whose abilities as an actress have remained ingrained in the hearts and minds of the American public from her days as a fictional lawyer in HBO’s Sex and The City series, and also in the two movies of the same name, that followed on the heels of the series.
Samuel Joseph Mozes Has Come Out As Transgender
Mozes adopted his current nickname, Seph, when he came out as transgender in 2018 to mark the #TransDayofAction. It was a moment of glowing pride for his mother, Cynthia Nixon, who herself came out as bisexual in 2007 and later as queer in 2012.
To put things in perspective, Samuel Joseph Mozes was born Samantha Mozes in 1996 and only adopted the name Samuel Joseph, nickname Seph, after coming out as transgender in 2018.
To commemorate and document the pivotal moment in her son’s life, Cynthia Nixon took to Instagram to share a picture of herself and Seph on his college graduation date on her Instagram page. Words of support also poured in for the actress and her transgender son and none more so from the New York Governor, who tweeted Cynthia’s Instagram post.
He is Not Active On Social Media
Despite the dust that his coming-out announcement kicked up at the time, Seph seems to like living in the shadows. At the moment, the celebrity child cannot be found on any social media platform. That particular fact remains subject to change; maybe we’ll have to wait and see.
