Nate Parker was raised with four younger sisters by a single mother Carolyn, who never married their biological father. As a child, he was very problematic, as his mother married another man and moved with him, and his biological father passed away when he was only nine years old. So he moved to Virginia, where he lived with his uncle, Jay Combs, who was a retired wrestler, so under his influence Nate began wrestling while he was at Great Bridge High School. He then attended Pennsylvania State University, but as he was accused of rape, he transferred to the University of Oklahoma, from which he later graduated with a degree in computer programming. During high school and college Nate focused more and more on wrestling, becoming one of the most successful wrestlers of his class, and he was named All-American wrestler.

However, Nate found a full-time job working as a computer programmer, but that didn`t last long, as he was soon spotted by a talent agent Jon Simmons. Nate accompanied his friend to an audition, when Simmons approached him, thinking that Nate was a model, or even actor. Nevertheless, the two immediately reached an agreement, and Nate saw himself flying to Los Angeles in no time.

He made his debut appearance in 2004 in an episode of the TV series “Cold Case”, which was soon followed by appearances in such productions as “Kurtlar Vadisi”, (2005), which is a Turkish TV series, and then made his big screen debut in the film “Cruel World” (2005), and continued in the same rhythm with a role in the film “Dirty” (2005). By 2010, he had established a name for himself, appearing in the films “Pride” (2007), “The Great Debaters” (2007), with Denzel Washington and Forrest Whitaker in lead roles, “Felon” (2008), and “The Secret Life Of Bees” (2008) with Dakota Fanning and Jennifer Hudson, which added a lot to his overall wealth.

He then took a short break from acting, focusing more on directing and producing, but returned in 2012 with a role in the film “Red Tails”, and continued to appear on big screen in the films “Arbitrage” with Richard Geere and Susan Sarandon, “Ain’t Them Bodies Saints” (2013), “Non-Stop” (2014) starring Liam Neeson and Julienne Moore, and “Beyond The Lights” (2014), which increased his net worth by a large margin.

Most recently he featured in the films “Eden” (2015), and “Birth Of A Nation” (2016), which he directed, wrote and produced, increasing further his net worth. Nate has also been recognized as director and producer through putting his name to such films as “Ghost Team One” (2013), “Portion” (2012), and “Predilection” which is yet to be released.

Thanks to his skills, Nate has received several prestigious nominations and awards, including the AAFCA Award in the category Best Supporting Actor for his work on the film “Arbitrage”. Furthermore, he received three Image Award nominations for his work on films “Beyond The Lights”, “The Great Debaters”, and “The Secret Life Of Bees”, among many others. When it comes to speak about his personal life, Nate Parker has been married to his long-time girlfriend Sarah De Santo since 2007; the couple has three daughters.

  • [on Nat Turner] He became my hero in college. I never heard about him until I went to college. [2016]
  • [on The Birth of a Nation (2016)] I don’t want this to be a film. I want it to be a movement. I don’t want it to be a moment in time. I want a launch pad for conversation around how we can deal with our trauma collectively. Then we can create a cultural shift. [2016]
  • [, August 2012] I’d love to play Nat Turner. What I would never play? Anyone wearing a dress. We just need more images of men. We’ve been emasculated physically, metaphorically too many times for me to support it. For me, that’s where the line stops.
  • [on the new ‘Nate Parker School of Film and Drama’ at Wiley College] The hope is that we cover all aspects of filmmaking, from sound, lighting and cinematography, to just studying film specifically with the cultural component and the history of film. (…) You control the moving picture, you control the masses … so really getting them rallied around the idea of reclaiming the narrative of America, specifically through the eyes of people of color. (…) If I can create a pipeline toward filmmaking physically through developing the college, having filmmakers be nurtured and cultivated here, and then having somewhere for them to go with respect for them actually being able to engage in filmmaking here in East Texas, then it kind of serves multiple purposes. [March 2016]
  • I decided to take on projects that I thought would break down walls rather than build them up, and to perpetuate positivity rather than to enforce negativity in who I was as a black man.
  • I want to pick material that involves me. I always tell my team that I never want to make the same movie twice. That’s what terrifies me the most.


  • Stated in an interview with BET that in an effort to preserve the Black man, he will, among many things, never play a gay character. Parker complained about Hollywood offering Black men roles that requires dresses and duct tape – though Parker took it one step further when he said Hollywood also offers Black men roles that consist of “men with questionable sexuality.”.
  • Member of the ‘Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ (AMPAS) since 2016.
  • In 2016 Nate Parker opened a film program named after him at the Wiley College in Texas: The Nate Parker School of Film and Drama. Parker is not the first director to do so: Other directors who created their own film school/program/course include David Lynch, Werner Herzog, Andrzej Wajda and Béla Tarr.
  • Nate was NCAA All-American in Wrestling at 141 lbs. in 2002 for the University of Oklahoma. He was also a High School All-American as well while attending Great Bridge High School in Virginia.
  • He and his wife Sarah DiSanto are college sweethearts. They met while attending Pennsylvania State University and have 4 daughters. Parker had another daughter with an unnamed woman.
  • Was discovered at a ProScout event.
