Biography

A native of North London -- born into a Jewish family with a British father and an American mother -- film actor Rafi Gavron grew up in the fashionable Primrose Hill district of his native city and attended an elite private school, but acquired an extreme distaste for academia and left at the age of 15. As fate would have it, at about the same time Gavron landed his first major film role -- with a supporting turn opposite Jude Law and Juliette Binoche in the late Anthony Minghella's well-received romantic drama Breaking and Entering (2003) -- making it unnecessary for Gavron to continue with his studies. A number of additional assignments followed, including the youth-oriented romantic comedy Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist (2008) and the elaborate Iain Softley-directed fantasy Inkheart (2009). ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
