Date of Birth: March 24, 1987

Ethnicity:
*Afro-Jamaican (father)
*Italian (mother)

Tyler Lepley is an American actor.

Tyler’s biological father has Jamaican roots. Tyler’s mother is of Italian descent. Tyler was raised by his mother, Jennifer, and stepfather, Charles Dinnis, from the age of six. A picture of Tyler with his mother can be seen here.

Tyler has stated:

I’m Jamaican and Italian so I’m wired to snap, not in a bad way, but I have a temper and that’s not the way you’re supposed to handle situations. I’m not a dictator, so if things don’t go my way, that doesn’t give me the right to be a crab apple or be rude to someone. I caught myself in certain situations where I wasn’t in control of what I was feeling and therapy helped me to gain that control.
