Delilah Fishburne is an American celebrity kid famous as the only child of the marriage between Laurence John Fishburne III and Gina Torres. Her father has other children, but Delilah is the only one he has with American actress Gina Torres. Her father is famous for playing Morpheus in the Matrix movies.
How much do you know about Delilah? About her early life, educational background, and everything in between? Do you know her family is one of the wealthiest in the entrainment business? Let’s try and find out.
Who Is Her Celebrity Father?
Born Laurence John Fishburne III in July 1961, he was credited as Larry Fishburne up until 1993. He is an American actor and producer, and three-time Emmy Award winner.
Famous for his forceful, militant, and authoritative characters, Laurence played Morpheus in The Matrix series, Jason Furious Styles in the Boyz n the Hood, the Bowery King in the John Wick film series, and Tyrone Mr. Clean Miller in Apocalypse Now.
But that is just the tip of the iceberg of his movie roles. Some other credits include The Color Purple, a movie by Steven Spielberg, School Daze by Spike Lee, Mystic River by Clint Eastwood, Last Flag Flying, and many more. We also have to mention blockbuster movies like Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Ant-Man and the Wasp.
Born in Augusta, Georgia, he was the son of Hattie Bell, a junior high school mathematics and science teacher, and Laurence John Fishburne Jr., a juvenile corrections officer. His parents divorced when he was a child, and then he moved with his mother to Brooklyn, New York.
He graduated from Lincoln Square Academy in New York, an educational institution that closed in the 1980s.
Fun fact: During his early career, he was credited as Larry Fishburne. He got his first acting job in 1972, at the age of 11 years. He appeared in the initial ABC theater teleplay If You Give a Dance You Gotta Pay the Band. After that, he appeared in the ABC soap opera One Life to Live, portraying Joshua Hall.
When production of Apocalypse Now began in March 1976, he was only 14 years old. Filming of that movie took so long, that he reached 17 years when the movie was finished.
In the 1980s, he spent most of his career appearing on television and on stage. Because work was hard to find at the time, he even worked as a bouncer at punk rock clubs.
In 1991, he got a big break by appearing in Boyz n the Hood. And then the next year, in 1992, he won his Tony Award for his stage performance in Two Trains Running.
The 1990s were good for Fishburne. In 1999, he appeared in the iconic The Matrix movie, portraying Morpheus, the hacker-mentor of Neo. It was the first time he collaborated with Keanu Reeves, something that will continue in the John Wick movie franchise.
In the 2000s, American actor Laurence Fishburne returned to the stage in the Broadway production of Thurgood, a new play by George Stevens.
Speaking about his personal life, he has been involved mostly with actresses. For example, he married actress Hajna O. Moss in 1985, and the two have two children, their son Langston Fishburne and daughter Montana Fishburne. The two divorced in the 1990s.
From 1992 to 1995, he dated American actress Victoria Dillard, before eventually getting together with American actress Gina Torres. He got engaged to Gina in 2001 and married her in September 2002.
The two spent 15 years together before they separated in 2017.
Delilah Fishburne is the only daughter of The Matrix star Laurence John Fishburne III and his former wife, Gina Torres. She was born into a celebrity family, with her father being an iconic actor. And her mother is an actress as well.
Gina is almost equally famous as Laurence. She emerged into the public scene as Brenda in the romantic comedy movie I Think I Love MY Wife, alongside Chris Rock.
Laurence and Gina have actually acted in a couple of projects together. Their wedding ceremony took place on September 22, 2002, after a couple of years of a secret romantic affair.
Delilah was born in June 2007 in the United States. She celebrated her 15th birthday in June 2023. She is of African-American ethnicity from her paternal side with some Cuban roots from her mother.
Delilah Fishburne Health
Since the celebrity daughter began appearing in the news, people continued to ask questions about her health. For starters, is she a special needs kid? But those rumors have not been confirmed.
As far as we know, she is as healthy as possible.
She is living with her mother and studying in an elementary school. But there are no reports about which school that is.
Does She Have Any Siblings?
As we said before, Delilah Fishburne has two siblings from her father’s previous relationships and marriages. Laurance has two children from his marriage to American actress Hajna O. Moss.
His firstborn child is actually his son Langston FIshburne. Born in 1987, there is little to no information about him. He works in the industry as an actor, but relatively low-budget movies. He doubles as a ballet dancer.
Montana Fishburne is the more “famous” child of Laurence and Hajna. Some people describe her as the black sheep of the Fishburne family.
She is the second child of Laurence and his former wife. She made it into the media spotlight when she came of age. Trying to break into the Hollywood mainstream, she released a sex tape just like Kim Kardashian did.
Delilah’s older half-sister is an actress working in adult movies. The pornographic actress doubles as a model. As a Playboy model, she has graced the cover of Black Men Magazine.
Some people have spotted her in men’s clubs, where she performs as a stripper. In her own words, she calls herself a “video vixen”.
Montana sometimes goes by names like Miss Fit Montana, Chippie D, and Morpehus’ Daughter.
Is She On Social Media?
Delilah is not active on social media. Unlike her half-sister Montana, who wants to be part of the media spotlight, Delilah is not interested in such a thing. She prefers to live a normal life away from the media craziness.
The youngest member of the Fishburne family doesn’t have a profile on social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or anything else.
Fun fact: neither does her father. Her mother is the only one present on social media. Gina has a profile on Instagram with around 400k followers.
As we said before, the Fishburne family is one of the wealthiest in the entertainment business in Hollywood.
Delilah has yet to begin earning money from her profession. She is still in school. So, there is no information about her net worth.
On the other hand, Laurence has a net worth of $30 million. According to some sources, he got paid $15 million per movie for the Matrix franchise. He also earned a percentage of the backend profits made by the movie.
