Oliver Elfman is the youngest child and only son of renowned American musician Danny Elfman. Oliver, 18, is well-known due to his close bond with his parents, Danny Elfman and Lola Elfman, who are accomplished entertainers. The celebrity kid has not decided on a career choice yet, but there are whispers floating around that he will probably follow in his parent’s footsteps.
Oliver Elfman was born on 21 January 2005
Oliver’s parents, Danny Elfman and Bridget Jane Fonda gave birth to him on January 21, 2005. After his birth, Oliver has led a quiet life and has shunned the media despite the fact that his name is frequently referenced in the news. Even Danny, Oliver’s father, has spoken about his son’s quiet personality. According to him, his son is a special person in that he dislikes snapping photos and doesn’t post any private information online.
His Father is a Gifted Music Composer
While information about the celebrity kid remains in the shadows, his father Danny Elfman is a popular American film composer, singer, songwriter, keyboardist, and percussionist who came to prominence as the singer-songwriter for the wave band Oingo Boingo in the early 1980s. In addition to his music for films, Elfman also penned themes for the television series The Simpsons, Tales from the Crypt, The Flash, and Desperate Housewives, which won Elfman his first Emmy. He also adapted his original themes for the animated versions of Batman and Beetlejuice. He has also composed music for animated shorts, including Sally Cruikshank’s Face Like A Frog and Tim Burton’s “Stainboy” internet series.
In October 2020, Oliver’s father released a single titled “Happy,” on Anti-Records and Epitaph Records. Throughout his entertainment career, he has won several awards including 2 Emmy Awards and 1 Grammy Award.
Oliver’s Mother gave up Her Career to Concentrate on Family Life
Oliver’s mother, Bridget Jane Fonda is also an American actress, known for her roles in The Godfather III (1990), Single White Female (1992), Singles (1992), and Kiss of the Dragon (2001). More so, Fonda was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress for playing Mandy Rice-Davies in the 1989 film Scandal and provided the voice for Jenna in the 1995 animated feature film Balto. She received an Emmy Award nomination for the 1997 TV film In the Gloaming and a second Golden Globe Award nomination for the 2001 TV film No Ordinary Baby.
Meanwhile, Bridget was involved in a serious car accident in Los Angeles on February 27, 2003, which broke one of her vertebrae. Oliver’s mother started dating former Oingo Boingo frontman and film composer Danny Elfman in March of that same year, and they got married in November. Fonda stopped acting and focused on her family after being engaged to Elfman. Her last known movie is The Whole Shebang (2001) and her last TV appearance was in Snow Queen (2002).
Oliver is the youngest of Danny’s 3 Kids
Oliver is the youngest of Danny’s three children; his step sisters make up the other two. His father gave birth to Lola and Mali Elfman in a prior relationship with Geri Eisenmenger. Lola Elfman, his older step-sister, was born in 1979. She is not in the entertainment industry but is open about her personal life. Lola is the founding partner of DevelopWell, a consulting firm that she currently manages. In addition, she enjoys drawing and is a talented artist. The name Elfman Greene is now used for Danny’s oldest stepsister. She is married to Greg Greene, the love of her life, and the pair are blessed with 2 kids.
The second child of Danny and his ex-wife Geri, Mali Elfman, was born in 1984. She, like her father, has built a career in the entertainment sector. However, she is a producer rather than a composer of music. Neurotica, Before I Wake, and The Party’s Just Beginning is a few of Mali’s well-known produced works. Additionally, she has already written and directed various projects.
What is Oliver Elfman up to?
As stated earlier, Oliver has avoided the spotlight despite being a celebrity child. This has made it difficult to understand what he is up to at the moment. However, several sources have claimed that he may toe his parent’s career path just like in the case of Giacomo Summer who took after his parents’ entertainment career.
