1984: Liev Schreiber Enrolls
at Friends Seminary in NYC

Actor Liev Schreiber was born in San Francisco but moved to New York City with his mother as a young child. For a time, they lived in a walkup with no electricity on First Avenue and First Street on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. He attended junior high school at I.S. 70, then went to Brooklyn Tech. In 1984, he enrolled at Friends Seminary, a private school, at 222 East 16th Street. There, he discovered acting, playing Bottom in a high school production of "A Midsummer Night’s Dream." He went on to study acting at Hampshire College and at Yale. In addition to appearing on-stage in New York productions of "Henry V" and "Hamlet," he has been in more than 30 movies, including the "Scream" trilogy, "A Walk on the Moon," and "The Manchurian Candidate." He recently directed "Everything is Illuminated," slated for release this year. He is shown here in 2000.
