Early life

Brody was born in Woodhaven, Queens, New York, the son of Sylvia Plachy, a photographer, and Elliot Brody, a retired history professor and painter.[1] Brody's father is of Polish Jewish descent;[2][3][4] Brody's mother, who was raised as a Catholic, was born in Budapest, Hungary, and is the daughter of a Catholic Hungarian aristocrat father and a Czech Jewish mother.[5][6][7] Brody was raised "without a strong connection" to Judaism or Catholicism.[8]

As a child, Brody performed magic shows at children's birthday parties as "The Amazing Adrien".[9] He attended the I.S. 227 Louis Armstrong Middle School and New York's Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts. His parents enrolled him in acting classes to distance him from the dangerous children with whom he associated.[10] He attended summer camp at Long Lake Camp for the Arts in the Adirondacks in upstate New York.[11] Brody attended Stony Brook University before transferring to Queens College for a semester.
