Theater director; born in Budzanov, Austria-Hungary (now Budanov, Ukraine). Brought to America as a child, he had a brief acting career, then was one of the founders of the Group Theatre in 1931, directing a number of plays there. But his greatest influence was through the Actors Studio where he became director in 1950. A proponent of "method" acting, which he adapted from the "system" brought to America by Konstantin Stanislavski's disciple and Marlon Brando's mentor Stella Adler, he influenced several generations of actors, from James Dean to Dustin Hoffman.

  • Acting coach/actor/director
  • Son, John Strasberg, also teaches at the Actors' Studio in New York City where Strasberg taught.
  • Father of Susan Strasberg
  • In her final will, Marilyn Monroe left Strasberg total control of 75% of her estate, including the licensing of her image as gratitude for his mentorship and kindness before and after she became a star. Today, Strasberg's widow administers the estate which earns millions of dollars in licensing fees whenever an advertiser or manufacturer uses Monroe's image.
  • Buried at Westchester Hills (NY) Cemetery.
  • 13 February 1982: Made his last public appearance at the "Night of 100 Stars" benefit for the Actors Fund at Radio City Music Hall. Along with proteges Al Pacino and Robert De Niro, he danced in the chorus line with the Rockettes.
  • 27-28 October 1999: Christie's auctioned the bulk of Marilyn Monroe's personal effects. In her will, she expressed her desire that Strasberg, or, if he predeceased her, her executor, "distribute (these) among my friends, colleagues and those to whom I am devoted." He willed them to Anna, who never met her; the auction netted .3 million. Ironically, she declared that she would never sell Monroe's personal items after successfully suing Odyssey Auctions in 1994 from preventing the sale of items which were withheld from Strasberg by Monroe's former business manager, Inez Melson. Julien's staged a second auction of Monroe's personal effects in 2005.
  • Lost the Best Supporting Actor Oscar for The Godfather: Part II (1974) to his protege, Robert De Niro.

  • Had 4 children: John and Susan by Paula Strasberg; Adam Strasberg and David Strasberg by Anna Strasberg.

  • Teacher and director of the Actors Studio, he trained many of the great American actors: Al Pacino, Ben Gazzara, Martin Landau, Eli Wallach, etc. He never taught Marlon Brando, who made the "method" famous, although he supported the Studio and regularly attended its formal and informal functions.
  • He and protege Al Pacino appeared together in two films: "The Godfather: Part II" and "...And Justice For All".
