Alfred Molina BIO

ALFRED MOLINA was born in Paddington, London to a Spanish immigrant father and an Italian immigrant mother who moved to Britain after WWII. Alfred emigrated to the U.S. in 1993. A seasoned theater and film actor, Molina has been featured in an extensive range of plays and films, from Oklahoma! in the West End (which earned him a Laurence Olivier Award nomination) to Spielberg’s Raiders of the Lost Ark and Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man: No Way Home. Alfred made his Broadway debut in Yasmina Reza’s Art in 1998 and subsequently performed on Broadway as Tevye in Fiddler on the Roof and Mark Rothko in Red. He was seen on the Pasadena Playhouse stage in his award-winning role in The Father (Ovation Award, LA Drama Critics Circle Award) and more recently in Inherit the Wind. He is married to director Jennifer Lee and the couple split their time between New York and Los Angeles.
