Vin Diesel was born on July 18, 1967 and is one of America’s most popular actors up to date. He first became known for his appearance in Spielberg’s “Saving Private Ryan” back in 1998 and since then his career has been nothing but successful. He is mostly well known for his roles of Riddick in the trilogy “The Chronicles of Riddick” as well as Dominic Toretto from the “Fast & Furious” franchise.
But like almost any other actor Vin Diesel did not plan knowingly his career path. It all happened by accident when he was just 7 years old. He and his buddies back then made the decision to illegally break into the theater in NYC based on Jane Street with the sole purpose of vandalizing it. Sadly for them their master plan was ruined when the artistic director of the theater Crystal Field captured them while they were sneaking in.
Instead of calling the cops and reporting them Mrs. Field offered the boys parts in the upcoming show titled “The Dinosaur Door”. It turned out to be a success that inspired Vin Diesel then to venture in creation. He remained an active actor in theater throughout his teenager years which prompted his later huge success on the big screen.
