Who are Jeremy Allen White’s parents?

Jeremy Allen White was born on February 17, 1991 in the Brooklyn borough of New York City to Eloise Ziegler and Richard White.

White’s parents both used to be actors, and they met when his father attended one of his mother’s plays in New York City’s Upper West Side, White told GQ U.K. in October 2023. While they pursued Broadway careers, once White was born, his father took a day job recording depositions.

“Acting was something I was always aware of, it was something both my parents did, when they were in their 20s and 30s,” White told Fault in 2022.

“They met in [New York City] doing theater, there was always a passion for theater, film and the art of acting in our household growing up.”

White followed in their footsteps and did theater when he was younger, and recalled to Variety the differences between his stage and screen experiences.

“The repetition of theater and doing the same thing over and over in front of people — you build confidence that way,” he said.

“I think for television and film, the bummer about it is you sit around and then you have five minutes to make something happen. I leave set every day just uncertain if we did what we were supposed to do.”

White’s parents raised him and his younger sister in Brooklyn’s Carroll Gardens neighborhood, and White still keeps a home base in the New York City borough.

“I grew up in Brooklyn, we have family here. We try to come for the summers to see friends and family while here,” he told Fault in 2022. “I like those New York nights where the sun can go down but it’s still very hot. Maybe I’ve over romanticized it a little bit, and it’s really miserable. But I like it here during the summer.”

His mom is originally from North Carolina, and her background helped White connect with another actor he admires, Dexter star Michael C. Hall, who he ran into at a holiday party.

“I was really nervous, and I happened to know too much about him,” White told The Chicago Tribune. “I was like, ‘My Mom is from North Carolina. You’re from North Carolina. My Mom went to [the same school as you].’ Once I got it out of my system, I calmed down a bit. He was very complimentary of [Shameless].”

While White may have taken after his parents in terms of his love for performing, his cooking skills aren’t a family trait. White attended culinary school to prepare to star as chef Carmy in The Bear, and he told Falstaff that growing up, his parents weren’t exactly Michelin material.

“My parents are lovely, but they are not good in the kitchen,” he said. “For me, the ultimate comfort was grilled cheese and tinned tomato soup. When I was sick, that was always a very comforting meal.”

These days, White says that he does most of the cooking for family holidays.

“I did Christmas Eve dinner, I did Christmas Day dinner for me and my family — all big meals,” he told PEOPLE in August 2022. “I love a Sunday roast. I love something really hearty, almost wintry comfort food. I’ll do short ribs, roasted vegetables, some kind of potato. That’s what I like to make and what I like to eat.”
