What is Israel Broussard’s ethnicity?
Isaiah Israel Broussard was born in Gulfport, Mississippi USA, on 22 August 1994 – his zodiac sign is Leo, he holds American nationality, and is of mixed ethnicity (German, Irish and British). He’s an actor who’s probably known best for his portrayal of the lead character Marc in the 2013 biographical crime movie “The Bling Ring”, written and directed by Sofia Coppola, based on the article “The Suspect Wore Louboutins” by Nancy Jo Sales, and which also starred Katie Chang and Emma Watson. It follows a true story of several teenagers who used the internet to find the whereabouts of celebrities, and they then robbed their homes. The film won four of the 11 awards it was nominated for.
Early life and education
Israel was raised in Saucier, Mississippi alongside his older sister Aubrey, by their mother Angela who worked at Mary Kay as a cosmetics consultant, and their father Lawrence Clayton Adams who died in 1999. Angela went on to marry Gil Broussard, who adopted Israel and his sister – she gave birth to Israel’s half-brother.
Israel became interested in acting upon enrolling at a local high school, and he began appearing in school plays. In 2010 aged 16, he made his debut film appearance in the critically acclaimed romantic comedy “Flipped”, written and directed by Rob Reiner, and which starred Madeline Carroll, Callan McAuliffe and Rebecca De Mornay.
It follows two 14-year olds as they fall in love with each other even though they are entirely different; the movie won two of the four awards it was nominated for. The same year also saw Israel appear in two episodes of the comedy series “Romantically Challenged”, and portray Hunter in the short action adventure movie “Mad Dog and the Flyboy”. In 2011 while still at high school, Israel played the supporting character Josh in the action family comedy film “The Chaperone”.
He matriculated in 2012, and chose not to enroll at college but to focus on his career as an actor.

In 2013, Israel portrayed the lead character Miles in the short musical “M83: Claudia Lewis”, and in 2014 he played Cameron – Kid that Pushes Tuck in the adventure family science fiction “Earth to Echo”, written by Henry Gayden, directed by Dave Green and which starred Teo Halm, Astro and Reese Hartwig. It follows a group of children going on an adventure with an alien who’s in need of their help; the movie won two of the three awards it was nominated for.
The year 2015 saw him portray supporting characters in the family drama “Jack of the Red Hearts”, the crime drama “Perfect High”, and the mystery thriller drama “H8RZ”.
The following year saw him star as Spice in the comedy drama “Good Kids”, written and directed by Chris McCoy and which also starred Nicholas Braun and Zoey Deutch. The movie follows four teenagers who are planning to change themselves after matriculating. Later in 2016 Israel starred as Mark in the short comedy “Thanks”, and in 2017 he was cast to portray the lead character Carter Davis in the hit horror mystery comedy “Happy Death Day” which also starred Jessica Rothe and Ruby Modine, and follows a college student who is re-living the day of her murder over and over again, until she discovers the identity of her killer.
Three of Israel’s most recent roles in movies have been in the 2018 action science fiction drama “Extinction”, the 2019 horror mystery comedy “Happy Death Day 2U”, and the 2021 horror thriller drama “Fear of Rain”.
Roles in TV series
Israel has appeared in only four TV series including “Romantically Challenged”. The year 2013 saw him portray Joey Noone in the episode “Sweet and Vaded” of the hit crime thriller drama “Sons of Anarchy”, which won 11 awards including a Golden Globe, while it was nominated for 56 other awards, and in 2016 he played James McCallister in the episodes “Date of Death” and “Do Not Disturb”, of the horror science fiction drama “Fear the Walking Dead”.
His only other TV series appearance has been in the 2019 episode “All That We Destroy” of the fantasy horror drama “Into the Dark”.

He has made a guest appearance in various talk-shows, such as “IMDb on the Scene – Interviews”, “Made in Hollywood” and “Hollywood First Look Features”.
Love life and girlfriend
Israel is quite secretive when it comes to his love life, however, he has recently been dating Keana Marie, and the two have uploaded many pictures featuring themselves together onto their Instagram accounts.
Keana is also an actress, born in Nice, France on 28 June 1995 – her zodiac sign is Cancer and she holds French nationality. She is probably known best for her portrayal of Sofia in the 2020 romantic comedy series “Dash & Lily”, and is currently working on the upcoming short movie “As the Tide Comes In”, which will be her writing, producing and directing debut.
Israel hasn’t spoken about any other girls he has perhaps been with, and as of March 2021, he’s dating Keana Marie, hasn’t married and doesn’t have children.
Hobbies and other interests
Israel has been a fan of music from a very early age, and is even today still dreaming of becoming a popular musician. As he has stated in an interview, music is his passion but he has come to realize that he isn’t very good at it. He can play the guitar and the drums.
He’s keen on travelling, and Israel has been to several US states such as Nevada, Florida and Texas, to shoot for his movies as well as to attend various auditions.
He’s hoping to one day visit Paris in France and Berlin in Germany, both in Europe.
He’s a dog-lover, and has a pet dog which can be seen featured in his Instagram profile picture.
In his spare time which is mostly late at night, Israel likes to watch movies starring his favorite actor and actress Johnny Depp and Emma Watson, such as the franchise “Pirates of the Caribbean”, “Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street” and the franchise “Harry Potter”.
Age, height and net worth
Israel’s age is 26. He has short brown hair and brown eyes, his height is 5ft 11ins (1.8m) and he weighs around 165lbs (75kgs).
As of March 2021, his net worth has been estimated at over $2 million. by Charlie Kaufman, and it’s even weirder than it sounds. An adult psychological drama about middle age, loneliness, and regrets in love, the film is decidedly not for children and requires real emotional resonance in its vocal performances, including Thewlis in the lead role of a motivational speaker of a certain age who doesn’t practice what he teaches. This becomes surreal, then, when all the lost souls in the world, including his wife and child, begin having the same face and voice….
Harry Melling in The Devil All the Time
Harry Melling – The Devil All the Time
If you had asked us 10 years ago which of the non-main trio of Harry Potter children actors would go on to have the best career, Dudley Dursley performer Harry Melling would not have been at the top of our list. Nonetheless, Melling has grown into a terrific character actor who’s blossomed in a string of Netflix projects, including The Queen’s Gambit and The Pale Blue Eye, in the latter of which he plays a pretty great Edgar Allan Poe. While both of those projects are a lot better than The Devil All the Time, for sheer magnitude of performance, Melling’s as a Southern fire and brimstone preacher selling a bag full of snake oil is the highlight. He’s a man full of fire and fury, yet still never knew Jesus even when a gun was put against his head.
Robert Pattinson and Willem Dafoe in The Lighthouse
Robert Pattinson – The Lighthouse
We’ve generally avoided actors for this list who only appeared in one Harry Potter film, however it felt worth acknowledging how Robert Pattinson got his start by stealing many a young viewer’s heart as Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. It paved the way for Twilight and the fantastic career that followed. As he’s grown into one of the best millennial leading men working, he’s starred in many a new classic, but none with as much sweltering madness or hypnotic delirium as Robert Eggers’ The Lighthouse. The film’s a two-hander between Pattinson and Willem Dafoe as lighthouse keepers in 19th century New England. But as Pattinson’s grasp on reality crumbles, the Gothic horror reveals itself to be one of the strangest and most Lovecraftian cinematic nightmares of the 21st century. Pattinson has never been more unhinged or triumphant.
Alan Rickman – Truly, Madly, Deeply
Any list about the Harry Potter cast would be remiss to not include the late great Alan Rickman. However, since many of his final roles after completing his tenure as Severus Snape occurred after he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, which limited his abilities in his last years, we’d rather remember him as he was in one of his all-time great performances.
There are plenty to choose from, be it his own legacy in poignant British dramas and period pieces, such as a sublime turn in Ang Lee’s Sense & Sensibility adaptation, as well as his iconic turns as all-time great Hollywood villains in Die Hard and Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. However, we’d like to recognize one of Rickman’s favorite performances that has gone wildly overlooked: his turn as a lovelorn ghost in Truly, Madly, Deeply. The Anthony Minghella dramedy had the misfortune of coming out the same year as the Patrick Swayze flick, Ghost, but this British indie is infinitely more subtle and honest. In the film, Rickman gets a lead role where he isn’t a fiend; he’s a sentimental, if vain, specter who returns to haunt his partner Nina (Juliet Stevenson) and resume their life together. It’s sweet, heartbreaking, and features a scene where Rickman sings the Walker Brothers while thumbing a cello.
