Born into the lineage of artists who have served the entertainment industry in different capacities for three long generations, it should be expected that popular American actor Jordan Bridges also follows the same path as his predecessors. His father Beau Bridges is a known director in the industry and his paternal grandparents, Dorothy and Lloyd Bridges were celebrated as artists during their active years in entertainment.
Jordan started out as a child artist, he was part of the 1982 movie titled Kids From Nowhere and also took part in 1986 Wonderful World of Color: The Thanksgiving Promise from Disney. Other movies and series he has been involved in include: Love Takes Wings, Drive Me Crazy, Rizzoli & Isles, A Good Funeral, Frequency, New Suit, and Without a Trace.
Jordan Bridges Biography, Age
Jordan Bridges was born in LA County, California on the 13th of November 1973. He is of American nationality and has a mixed ancestry of English, Australian, Jewish, Russian and Irish. He is the son of Beau Bridges and Julie Langfield who separated in a divorce in 1982. His father went into a second marriage with Wendy Treece – Jordan’s stepmother. The actor has quite a number of siblings – a brother named Casey Bridges, two half-brothers Ezekiel and Dylan Bridges, and a half-sister called Emily Bridges.
He was at progressive Oakwood School and proceeded to New York’s Bard College where he majored in Theatre with a minor in Literature. Before his graduation from college, the young actor put in a year in the prestigious London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts in England. While he was there, he put up in a small basement flat, surviving on chicken noodles and availing himself of free passes to attend theatre productions at West End.
His Net Worth
The famous actor’s salary has never been published but some sources that are not so reliable have gone ahead to peg his net worth at a handsome $14 million which has the potential to increase in no distant time.
Family – Wife, Father
Jordan’s father Beau Bridges is a notable personality in the entertainment industry. He worked as a movie director. Although Beau is English, he has a smattering of Swiss-German, Scots-Irish (Northern Irish), German and Irish ancestry. When Jordan was in his formative years, he made an appearance in a 1982 movie, The Kids From Nowhere which was directed by his dad.
Jordan’s father, Beau, also came from a long line of entertainers as his parents Lloyd and Dorothy Bridges were renowned artists in their time. His siblings Jeff and Cindy Bridges were all part of the entertainment industry. When his marriage with Jordan’s biological mum Julie Landfield came to an end in a divorce that was finalized on the 12th of March 1982, Beau got married to Wendy Treece who assisted in Jordan’s upbringing.
A closer scrutiny of his current relationship status shows that the talented actor has been in a marriage relationship since 2002 when he tied the knot with his lifelong soulmate, Caroline Sherman Eastman who earns a living as an artist-inventor.
It would appear that Jordan tied the nuptial knot more than once with the same woman. The duo exchanged marriage vows a couple of times at The Burning Man arts festival, they repeated their vows for the third time at Kauai, Hawaii on the 2nd of January 2002 but this time around, they did it in a traditional way.
Their first child, a daughter named Caroline (Lola for short) made her entrance into the world in 2003 and within a couple of years, their second child, a son named Orson was born on the 20th of October 2005. The couple’s marriage has endured for over 16 years and still counting. Currently, they shuttle between their two homes in Topanga, California and Woodstock, New York. The duo appears to be living in marital bliss and divorce or separation seem to be very far from them.
Although the details of his body measurements are not accessible at the moment, we have it from a reliable source that Jordan stands at a great height of 6 feet 1 inch. His natural hair is dark brown in colour, same as the colour of his eyes.
