However, he spent his early life in Hawaii before his parents got divorced and he moved to Florida, to live with his mother’s new husband. He’s the youngest of the three children of his biological parents and he also has two step-siblings.

With a childhood that required a lot of adjustments, Vincent D’Onofrio was a shy kid who found solace in performing magic and sleight of hand tricks. For his education, he attended Hialeah-Miami Lakes Senior High School.
