Jonathan Michael Majors is an American actor who has taken the industry by storm with his impeccable acting skills and magnetic on-screen presence. Born on September 7, 1989, in the small town of Lompoc, California, Majors spent his early years on the Vandenberg military base, where his father, a member of the Air Force, was stationed.

Majors’ troubled past started to surface in middle school when he struggled to fit in with his classmates. His frustrations culminated in a violent incident where he pulled a knife on his peers, landing him in in-school suspension. For Majors, the isolation of in-school suspension was unbearable, and he described it as feeling like he was “sitting in a box.” But when he transferred to a new high school, he found a new group of friends in the choir and discovered a passion for dance, speech, and debate.
