Danny Glover was born July 22, 1946 in San Francisco, California, the son of Carrie Hunley and James Glover. His parents were both postal workers and active in the NAACP. Glover graduated from George Washington High School in San Francisco. He attended San Francisco State University but didn’t graduate. The school later awarded him the Presidential Medal of SFU.
Glover and Asake Bomani got married in 1975. Their daughter, Mandisa, was born in 1976. The couple parted ways and divorced in 2000. Glover was remarried to Elaine Cavalleiro in 2009. Glover bought a 6,000 square foot house in Dunthorpe, Oregon, in 1999, but he is no longer a resident of Oregon.
His first job in theatre was with the American Conservatory Theater, a San Francisco-based regional training program. Glover studied acting under Jean Shelton at the Shelton Actors Lab in San Francisco, and he acknowledged Jean Shelton for much of his growth as an actor in an appearance on “Inside the Actors Studio.” Glover subsequently left his job as a city administrator and went on to pursue a career as a theatre performer. He moved to Los Angeles, where he later co-founded the Robey Theatre Company with actor Ben Guillory in honor of Paul Robeson, an actor and concert singer (Los Angeles in 1994). Glover made his film debut in 1979 with “Escape to Alcatraz.” He went on to play a variety of minor roles before winning the starring role of Albert Johnson in “The Color Purple” in 1985.
