- Fun Fact: Schwimmer is actually not related to dancer Lacey Schwimmer. Though they share the same last name, they have never met.
David Schwimmer was born in Queens, New York City, but his family moved to Los Angeles when he was young. He first began acting at the age of 10 but originally thought that he wanted to be a doctor. He changed his mind, however, and wanted to begin acting straight out of high school, but his parents convinced him to go to college first.
Schwimmer got his big break when he appeared in the classic sitcom “Friends” as one of the principle actors. The popularity of the show, however, meant that many people are surprised when he portrays a character very different from his “Friends” character, Dr. Ross Geller. His acting talent, however, has often been praised, though his directing work has received more lukewarm responses from critics.
