Born on June 26, 1997, Jacob Elordi turned 25 on his birthday in 2022. He is an Australian by birth and spent his early childhood in Brisbane, Queensland. He has some Spanish heritage, thanks to his father, John Elordi, who emigrated from the Basque Country at eight with his family. Not much is known about his mother, Melissa.
Jacob was a student of the Catholic secondary schools of St. Kevin’s College, Melbourne, before he enrolled at St Joseph’s College, Nudgee in Brisbane, to further his education. He grew up with three older sisters, which likely explains how he learned to clean up so well.
Sources close to him claim that he took an interest in acting very early in life and is a fan of old-school actors. For example, he posts about James Dean, the 1950s star of Rebel Without a Cause, East of Eden, and Giant. He also loves American legend Marlon Brando of the 1953’s Julius Caesar and 1972’s The Godfather.
Ultimately, his love for acting led him to play performances, and one of his first parts was playing Cat in the Hat in a production of Seussical. After that, he started to get his foot in the door of the film industry and eventually landed an uncredited part as an extra in Johnny Depp’s Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales in 2017.
Then, in 2018, Jacob Elordi got a role as Rooster in the comedy-drama film Swinging Safari. He got to act alongside other Australian stars like Guy Pearce, Kylie Minogue, Radha Mitchell, Julian McMahon, Asher Keddie, and Jeremy Sims.
The Kissing Booth (Noah Flynn)
Following this, he was picked to play the co-lead in the first installment of The Kissing Booth movie. Jacob played the character of a high school senior and bad boy Noah Flynn. The movie was a success because of its viewing audience on Netflix, and the rest of the trilogy was greenlit.
