Samuel Leroy Jackson was born in Washington, D.C. and grew up as an only child in Tennessee with his mother and grandparents. He only meets his father twice, then he dies as a result of his alcohol abuse. Originally, Samuel L. Jackson wants to become a marine biologist and only joins the theater company at college to get extra points. But then he is so taken with the acting profession that he changes his field of study and starts a theater group. However, his degree has been postponed because he has been suspended for two years: After the murder of civil rights activist Martin Luther King Jr., Samuel L. Jackson was arrested during a protest.

He made his first film appearance in 1972 in "Together for Days". Then Samuel L. Jackson worked four times with the Afro-American director Spike Lee. The actor later says he had a drug problem during this time. After going into rehab in 1991, Samuel L. Jackson starred in blockbusters such as "Good Fellas - Three Decades in the Mafia", "The Hour of the Patriots" and "Jurassic Park". In "True Romance", whose script was written by Quentin Tarantino, he came into contact with the cult director for the first time and was hired for "Pulp Fiction". The then 46-year-old actor earned an "Oscar" and a "Golden Globe" nomination in his profile for his acting performance.

After this huge success, Samuel L. Jackson was offered roles in such films as "Die Hard Now," "The Jury", Tarantino's "Jackie Brown" and "Deep Blue Sea".
