Logan Wade Lerman is a Jewish American actor and music enthusiast, he was born in Beverly Hills in 1992 to Lisa (nee Goldman ), she works as his manager and Larry Lerman, an orthotist and business man, ( he and some other relatives run the family company, Lerman and Son, an orthotic company founded in 1915 by his great grandfather Jacob Lerman).
Logan seemed to know he was going to act, at the tender age of 2, he told his mom he’s going to be an actor after watching Jackie Chan’s movie, so at the age of 4 he appears in commercials. His movie debut was in “The Patriot” (2000) where he played William, the youngest son of Mel Gibson’s character and not too long after that he appeared in another Mel Gibson movie ; “What Women Want” (2000) and since then he has not looked back, he has gone on to act in blockbuster movies and Box Office hits.
Some of his movie credits include “The Perks of Being a Wild Flower” (2012), the movie adaptation of Stephen Chobosky’s novel which also starred, the “Harry Potter” star, Emma Stone. Talking about the kiss scene in the movie “it’s so epic… Stone says, “But the main thing was I get to do it with Logan. He makes me feel safe…” and Logan said “[with Emma] it was so great to have a friend that you can rely on in that kind of environment, like lean on in rough times, it was really nice to have her there”. He won the teen choice award for participating in this movie. They both acted together in the “R” rated film “Noah” this time as siblings and he played Ham the son of the title character, Noah got over a $100million in box office hit.
