Who is Judah Lewis?
Judah Lewis was born under the zodiac sign of Gemini on 22 May 2001, in Cherry Hill, New Jersey USA; he holds American nationality and his ethnicity is of mixed Irish, Russian and Jewish descent. He’s an actor with 11 credits to his name, perhaps known best for his role as Cole in the 2017 Netflix movie “The Babysitter”, starring alongside Robbie Amell and Samara Weaving in this comedy horror, which is about a boy Cole who discovers that his babysitter is actually part of a satanic cult.
Early life, family, and education
Judah was raised in Cherry Hill, a quiet, family-friendly suburbia in southern New Jersey, as an only child by his parents Mark and Hara who are acting teachers, so it isn’t surprising that Judah started acting at the age of four. He decided to become an actor after watching “Hugo” starring Asa Butterfield, a young English actor who is his idol.
Judah’s father, Mark was born on 3 December 1972; he graduated from Carnegie Mellon University with a Bachelor’s degree in Drama, and there he met his future wife Hara; nowadays they all live in Los Angeles, California, and have their private school named “Kids Interactive Theatre Ensemble” where Hara and Mark teach acting, and Judah is going on to auditions.
Some of them were successful, but there were less successful ones such as his audition for the role of ‘Spider-Man’ in the movie “Captain America: Civil War” in 2016; although he was selected for testing, and it seemed that he was doing well, the role went to Tom Holland.
Judah attended a local high school, and upon matriculating in 2019, he didn’t enroll at college, but pursued his acting career.
Judah made his acting debut in the 2014 TV movie “Deliverance Creek”, in which he was cast to play Caleb Barlow acting alongside Wes Ramsey, Christopher Backus and Lauren Ambrose, followed by his appearance in the series “CSI: Cyber” and his role as Chris in the movie “Demolition” a comedy drama starring by Jake Gyllenhaal, Chris Copper, and Naomi Watts, which had two award nominations and won one.
In the following year, he portrayed Young Gil in the series “Game of Silence”, before he was cast to play Cole in “The Babysitter”, followed by his role as Tommy ‘Eats’ Eaton in the 2018 movie “Summer of 84”, starring alongside Caleb Emery and Graham Verchere in this mystery horror drama, which had five award nominations and won one. This role brought Judah recognition in the film industry, and he’s stated that it was one of his favorites for now, because he was acting the opposite of the person that he is in real life.
Also in 2018, Judah was cast to play Teddy in “The Christmas Chronicles”, starring alongside Kurt Russell and Darby Camp in this family, adventure comedy movie about two siblings who have a plan to catch Santa Claus on camera, but their plan turns out into an unexpected journey; the movie had two award nominations.
In the 2019 movie “I See You”, he portrayed Connor Harper, followed by roles in the following year as Cole in the sequel “The Babysitter: Killer Queen”, and as Teddy in the sequel “The Christmas Chronicles: Part Two”, which are his most recent roles.
Love life and relationships
There were various rumors concerning both Judah’s love life and his sexual orientation, although he hasn’t spoken about any man or a woman whom he has been with.
In 2017, there were rumors that he was seeing young actress Jenna Ortega, perhaps known best for her role as Harley Diaz in the Disney Channel series “Stuck in the Middle”, but neither Judah nor Jenna spoke about any association.
In 2018, rumors started about him having a relationship with another actress, Emily Alyn Lind, perhaps known best for her role as Melanie in the movies “The Babysitter” and “The Babysitter: Killer Queen”, however, the two haven’t confirmed these rumors.
In the following years, rumors started about him being gay, because he wasn’t being seen with any girl in public, so those who disliked this young actor, or maybe were just jealous of his success, spread the rumors online, and soon his fans were asking if this was the truth. However, rumors about his sexual orientation are likely false, but Judah hasn’t commented about these assumptions.
As of November 2021, it seems that Judah is single, or he prefers to keep his private life a secret, as he has done so far.
