Unfortunately, her parents’ relationship did not survive for long after her birth as they both parted ways.

The young Tracy spent a better part of her formative years in New Mexico with her maternal grandparents Marjorie Marshall and Anthony Marshall after her parents’ separation. Her mum Penny relocated to Los Angeles in pursuit of a career in the entertainment industry. By the time she clocked eight, her mum had already met and married movie director Rob Reiner and with time, Tracy had to join her mum and stepdad in Los Angeles.

Tracy later drops her biological father’s last name to assume the last name of Rob Reiner who adopted her as his own daughter after his marriage to Tracy’s mum which lasted for 10 years. Tracy is obviously of American nationality but with mixed ethnicity of English, Scottish as well as Irish. As a result of her parent’s profession, she got exposed to the world of entertainment from her formative years.

Her educational qualifications indicate that she is a college graduate; she went to Colfax Avenue School and a French academic institution where she earned competence in the French language. Her quest for further qualifications took her to Bennington College where she graduated as a major in The History of Storytelling.

After her high school graduation, Tracy started showing interest in areas like Mythology, philosophy, history, and religion. Acting never featured in her plans at that stage, she had more interest in writing and had her fair share of odd jobs in places like restaurants in order to make ends meet but she came in front of the camera for the first time at age 13 on the set of Laverne & Shirley – a kiddies show which featured her for the next four years. Although she had an initial dislike for the limelight, she soon became acclimatized in no time at all.
