Who are Finn Wolfhard parents?
Eric Wolfhard (father)
Date of birth: September 14, 1965
The actor’s father was born in the family of Michael and Nora Wolfhard. He is a well-educated person, who studied art and policy in the University of British Columbia and then got Bachelor of Laws in the University of Toronto. Eric is a person of a solid and serious profession. He is a historical researcher. The man specializes in aboriginal land issues. Eric has an account on Twitter. Obviously, he is proud of his talented son Finn. He often posts pics of the actor at various public events on his page. In addition, the man manages Finn’s career and is present at most of his interviews. According to his son’s words, he wrote several movie scripts and dreams to make films, based on them, but nobody of reputable producers is interested in his projects.
Mary Jolivet (mother)
It turns out, that Finn inherited his acting skills from his mother’s side. Her aunt from the paternal side, Rita Jolivet, was a silent actress. In addition, it was Mary, who taught Finn to love and understand music. She introduced her son to Beatles and other legendary bands when her cute little son was just 7. Around that age she gave a guitar to his hands, so now her son makes music as a member of a rock band “Calpurnia”, which he co-founded.
Mary was born in Vancouver, Canada, where her father Lawrence Charles Jolivet moved in the late 1930s. There he married a cute girl, named Trish, and they gave a birth to Mary (Finn’s mother) and her brother Timothy. Lawrence, the actor’s grandfather, comes from a French city of Dieppe, so the actor obviously has French roots.
Mary studied visual display and design at Langara College. In the early 1980s, she also attended Institut Catholique de Paris, where studied French culture. During many years she served as the assistant of her husband Eric. Later she began to work for the brand Dormouse Design, which creates clothes for kids. But she never gets tired to tell, that her main job is that one of a mother. She gave a birth to two talented sons – Finn and Nick.
