Avan Jogia 10 Fast Facts, Biography, Wiki
Jogia describes himself as “spiritual,” having spent months as a Buddhist and has roots in Hinduism.
Jogia maintains that he has “looked at all kinds of ways of being, because I’m curious about what it takes to be human.”
He has a dual citizenship of Canada and the United Kingdom.
Jogia has a number of tattoos; one on his chest, leg, upper leg, shoulder, back, and his lower arm.
Jogia co-founded the online PSA organization Straight But Not Narrow (SBNN) in 2011, with Heather Wilk and Andre Pochon, in conjunction with the support of fellow actor, Josh Hutcherson.
The non-profit organization aims towards changing the attitudes and viewpoints of heterosexuals about the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community.
Jogia believed that: “[t]here was no one making straight youth responsible for their apathy.
When you see a bully beating up a kid and you stand idle, that’s as loud, or louder, than the actual oppression”, and thus established the organization.
Avan Tudor Jogia was born on February 9, 1992 in Vancouver, British Columbia.
His father is British Indian, and his mother is of English, German, and Welsh descent.
He is also the younger brother of Ketan, a music producer in London.
Besides English, Jogia speaks some Gujarati and French.
According to The Start, Jogia was a student at Killarney Secondary School until age 17 when he left to pursue acting full-time, having already gained a number of small television credits.
In an interview, he said that his parents withdrew him from middle school in favor of home schooling.
He moved to Los Angeles, California on the trial-basis ultimatum that he would land a role within a six-month period – or return to schooling.
Jogia has cited British actor Tim Curry as one of his early acting inspirations, particularly Curry’s role as Long John Silver in the 1996 musical adventure comedy film, Muppet Treasure Island.
British actor Sir Ben Kingsley is another of Jogia’s inspirations; the two would later appear in the 2015 miniseries Tut, and work together on the 2016 short film Of Dogs and Men.
