If they weren’t born here, they spent a huge part of their lives here.
A little while ago, I told you about celebrities you had no clue who call The Garden State home. Naturally, that list is always growing since we learn something new every day.
Where did the inspiration come from this time around? Do you know how watching TV can sometimes lead you into a rabbit hole on Google? It’s so easy to get sucked into looking up actors and characters and plotlines, that you forget you’re even watching something on TV.
That’s exactly what happened to me. I was watching Season 1 of American Horror Story when I wanted to learn more about the character Violet Harmon, who was played by Taissa Farmiga.
Boom! A quick Google search told me she’s actually from Whitehouse Station. I went all these years seeing her in shows not knowing that. If I had no idea, chances are you didn’t know either.
It doesn’t stop with her. There are so many other talented celebrities we are proud to share a home state with!
To be fair, some of these celebrities weren’t born here, but, they did spend a huge portion of their lives here. A friend just told me about a famous director that spent most of his life here…his childhood home is still standing!
Sites like Wikipedia and Stacker.com helped me come up with a list of more celebrities you didn’t know are from New Jersey. I’ll admit, there’s one person (or hint: people) on the list that I know from being a crazed superfan!
