Max Giorgio Choa Minghella was born on September 16, 1985 (age 36 years) in Hampstead, London, United Kingdom. He is the son of director Anthony Minghella (1954–2008) and dancer and choreographer Carolyn Jane Choa. His father was born in Ryde, Isle of Wight, and was of Italian descent, and his mother was born in Hong Kong.
Minghella spent time on his father’s film sets while growing up, of which he has “fond memories” and has said that he felt “no pressure” from his father to succeed in the entertainment industry. He was educated at St Anthony’s Preparatory School and University College School in Hampstead.
He then attended Columbia University, which he considered his “first priority”, and studied history, graduating in 2009. He typically worked on films only during his summer break. He said that he felt like “an English boy at an American school”, that he kept to himself, and that most of his fellow students did not know that he was an actor.
Ancestry and ethnicity
Minghella’s father was born on the Isle of Wight and is of Italian descent, whereas his mother was from Hong Kong from a family of multiple heritage. His maternal grandfather George Choa was of three-quarters Chinese and one-quarter Jewish descent, and his maternal grandmother Maisie Nora (née Kotewall) was of Parsi, English, Irish, Swedish and Chinese ancestry.
Sir Robert Kotewall is his great-grandfather. Olympic swimmer Robyn Lamsam is his second cousin through the Kotewalls.
Minghella was inspired to become an actor during his late teenage years, after seeing a production of the play This Is Our Youth in London’s West End; he subsequently dropped out of the University College School to pursue an acting career and attended the National Youth Theatre.
He did not always want to become an actor. He said: “I thought it was sort of embarrassing to say you wanted to be an actor – it was, like, uncool. And growing up I was massively concerned with seeming cool. I thought up until about age 16 that I was going to be a music video director.”
