Early Years

Óscar Isaac Hernández Estrada was born on March 9, 1979, in Guatemala City, Guatemala, to a native mother, María Eugenia Estrada Nicolle, and a Cuban father, Óscar Gonzalo Hernández-Cano. As soon as scar Senior started school to become a doctor, he moved his family to Baltimore, Maryland, and then to New Orleans, Louisiana, before settling in Miami, Florida, in the mid-1980s.

Isaac grew up in a very religious family, but he shared his father’s love of music and enjoyed telling his older sister Nicole and younger brother Mike what to do with the family video camera. As a way to rebel against his conservative community, he was kicked out of Westminster Christian Middle School for acting up. At Santaluces Community High School, he started playing in ska bands.

Isaac almost joined the Marines. Instead, he went to Miami Dade College and spent his time acting and playing music. The talented actor moved to New York City for a role in a play, and when he got into the prestigious Juilliard School in 2001, he decided to stay there.

Films, TV Shows and Theater

‘The Nativity Story,’ ‘Balibo’

Isaac got right to work after he graduated from Juilliard in 2005. He used his training to get big parts in “Shakespeare in the Park” productions of Two Gentlemen of Verona and Romeo and Juliet. In 2006, he played Joseph, the main character, in Catherine Hardwicke’s The Nativity Story, which was the first movie to be shown at the Vatican. This helped his movie career take off. After being in the Ridley Scott thriller Body of Lies (2008), Isaac won an Australian Film Institute award for his role as the future president of East Timor, José Ramos-Horta, in Balibo (2009).

‘Robin Hood,’ ‘Sucker Punch,’ ‘Drive’

Isaac joined Scott in a remake of Robin Hood, and his role as King John, which was often funny, stole the show from the movie’s stars, Russell Crowe and Cate Blanchett. The best part of Zack Snyder’s ambitious but disappointing Sucker Punch was the song and dance number he did with Carla Gugino (2011). In Drive, he gave a nuanced performance as Standard, who could have been a typical bad guy. This helped the movie get good reviews and do well at the box office.

‘Inside Llewyn Davis’

Isaac became even more famous when he was chosen to lead Inside Llewyn Davis, a drama/comedy by the Coen Brothers that is loosely based on the life of folk singer Dave Van Ronk. Even though he used to be in a band, the actor had to learn a new way to play the guitar so that he could convincingly play the inspirational figure in the movie’s musical numbers. Critics were impressed by how well he used his guitar and voice to bring the otherwise dull character to life, and Isaac was nominated for a Golden Globe for his work.

‘A Most Violent Year,’ ‘Ex Machina,’ ‘Show Me a Hero’

A Most Violent Year (2014) got more good reviews, and Isaac was praised for playing the honest businessman Abel Morales alongside Jessica Chastain, a former Juilliard classmate. Then, in Ex Machina (2014), he did a great job as Nathan Bateman, an unstable and scary tech genius, by channeling his inner Stanley Kubrick and adding another dance number to get people’s attention.

Isaac was back on TV for the first time since he was on “Law & Order” in 2006. He was the star of the HBO miniseries “Show Me a Hero,” which was directed by Paul Haggis. Isaac won the Golden Globe for best actor in a miniseries or TV film for his role as the real-life Nick Wasicsko, who became America’s youngest mayor of a big city in 1987. In this role, Isaac showed how a man can break under the pressures of life.

‘Star Wars,’ ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’

Isaac ventured into cinema with the role of dashing fighter pilot Poe Dameron in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Although his efforts to create a groundbreaking romance between the male leads went unfulfilled, Isaac managed to talk producers out of killing his character quickly and guarantee Poe’s return for The Last Jedi (2017) and The Rise of Skywalker (2019).

Another major installment in the franchise, X-Men: Apocalypse (2016), failed to win over audiences despite Isaac’s efforts in the role of the titular villain. His enthusiasm to appear alongside talents like Michael Fassbender and Jennifer Lawrence was dampened by a heavy and uncomfortable costume. Isaac later admitted to GQ that he was just trying to survive the grueling shoot.

‘Annihilation,’ ‘Spider-Man,’ ‘The Addams Family’

After an acclaimed return to the stage in an Off-Broadway production of Hamlet (2017), Isaac played a special forces agent influenced by a mysterious alien force in Annihilation (2018) before starring in and producing the Nazi-hunting drama Operation Finale (2018). He also entered the realm of voice work with his brief contribution to Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018) (with the promise of an expanded role for future sequels), and was the man behind the creepy and crazy patriarch Gomez for the animated films The Addams Family (2019) and The Addams Family 2 (2021).

‘The Card Counter,’ ‘Dune’

Isaac seized his chance to work with the screenwriter of Taxi Driver (1976) and delivered a typically layered, fascinating performance as a former military man who must bear the burden of past crimes in the Schrader-directed The Card Counter (2021). Isaac also regained his credibility as a filmmaker with the role of Duke Leto Atreides in the science fiction classic Dune, helping to turn the once “unfilmable” material into a box office hit.

‘Scenes from a Marriage,’ ‘Moon Knight’

Isaac and Chastain will star in an updated version of Ingmar Bergman’s 1973 miniseries “Scenes from a Marriage.” Isaac was interested in exploring a long-term relationship, so he agreed to work on the project with Chastain. With its long takes and close-up scenes, filming was difficult, but the co-stars were able to rely on the trust they had built up over 20 years of friendship. Isaac’s performance, which was especially raw, earned him nominations for the Golden Globe, Emmy, and Screen Actors Guild.

Isaac went back to the Marvel Cinematic Universe for his next TV project, “Moon Knight.” The role of a character with dissociative identity disorder called for a multifaceted approach (DID). From a mild-mannered museum worker to a tough crime fighter, the star worked with the rest of the cast and crew to find the best ways to tell the story. Co-star Ethan Hawke told Esquire, “He came in every day determined to make something worth watching.” “And he gave us some of his energy.”

Wife and Children

Isaac and Danish screenwriter and director Elvira Lind got together in 2012, and they got married in the beginning of 2017. In April 2019, they had their first son, Eugene. In October 2019, they had their second son, Mads.

Isaac and Lind also work together. She directed her husband in the 2020 film The Letter Room, which was nominated for an Academy Award for best live-action short film. Together, they started a company called Mad Gene Media to make movies.
