The Umbrella Academy Actor Jake Epstein Bio | Wiki

Jake Epstein (born on January 16, 1987) is a 35 years old Canadian actor known for playing Mr. Munder in the 2022 TV series “The Hardy Boys.” Jake started his acting career in 1999 with the show, and since then, he has worked not only on the small screen but also on the big screen.

In 2019 you might have seen him playing the lead character Jonathan Silver in a movie titled “Mistletoe & Menorahs,” where he was paired with Kelley Jakle. Some other productions in which Epstein has worked include “FANatic,” “Backstage,” “Designated Survivor,” “Candy Cane Candidate,” and “Star Trek: Discovery.”

This 6 feet 2 inches tall Canadian actor became popular in the news after he landed the role of Alphonso in Steve Blackman’s “The Umbrella Academy Season 3.” The story of this New Netflix series is about kids with superpowers who fell apart but now, when they are grown-ups, there is a need for them to reunite and fight together to save the world.

Early Life

On January 16, 1987, Jake Epstein (age 35) took birth to his parents in Toronto, Canada. His father, Ian Epstein, is a renowned lawyer in Toronto, whereas his mother, Kathy Kacer, is an award-winning story writer. He also has a sister named Gabi Epstein, who most of you might recognize because she is also an artist.

Just like his mom Jake is also a creative person. As a kid, he hated studying, and when he was nine, he auditioned for an acting school to avoid going to school for a few days. But he got accepted at the school and has been acting since.

Besides acting, he spent gaining a few more skills like playing guitar and martial arts. In an interview, he accepted that he loves to write (just like Kathy) and wants to continue writing for as long as possible.

During his school days, Jake attended acting schooling and was also a member of Soulpepper Theatre Company. In 1999, when he was only 12, he got his first break with a show named “Real Kids, Real Adventures.” The project was directed by Roz Owen and included stories about kids’ heroics. The following year Epstein found himself a place on Jeff Gruen’s directed kids show “Ricky’s Room,” and his career took off.

From 2000 to 2005, Jake performed each year, and his notable works include “Quints,” “Mom’s Got a Date with a Vampire,” “The Zack Files,” “Bury the Lead,” “Crown Heights,” “Radio Free Roscoe” and “Degrassi: Minis.” By 2005, this fantastic actor became a famous face on TV, and his popularity was boosted after he stepped into the film industry with the movie “Charlie Bartlett.”

Personal Life
