CAROL CHANNING
The famous Broadway performer started her career in the 40s and 50s as a white actress. She didn’t reveal to the world that her father was black until 2002, when she was around 80 years old.



MICHAEL FOSBERG
Action movie actor Michael Fosberg didn’t know that he was passing when he played white characters. He was 32 and well into his career before his mother revealed to him that the man he knew as his father wasn’t and that his real dad was a black man.



VIN DIESEL
Vin Diesel says that he identifies as a “person of color,” but most people don’t know that his mother is white and his father is black.



DARNELL MARTIN
When Darnell Martin produced “I Like It Like That” in 1994, she was the first black woman to write and direct a film for a major Hollywood studio. Only very few people know that Darnell’s father was black so the milestone wasn’t properly celebrated.



GABRIELLE REECE
The volleyball star’s father is Trinidadian. He was k!lled in a plane crash when Gabrielle was just five years old.



DANIEL SUNJATA
The “Rescue Me” star is often typcast as a Lation actor, but he’s actually half black and half white.



DWAYNE JONSON
Most people are aware that Dwayne is “ambiguously ethnic”. But not everyone knows that he’s actually half black and half Samoan.
