Woody Allen, Scarlet Johannson and Adam Sandler are a few famous Jewish actors.

It is widely believed that the Jewish community originated in Israel and eventually many followers of the religion relocated to different parts of the world. Jewish individuals have carved a niche for themselves in fields like sports, science, art and medicine over the years. The contribution of Jewish individuals to world cinema definitely deserves a mention. Woody Allen, Harrison Ford, Ben Stiller, Jake Gylenhaal, Adam Sandler, Daniel Radcliffe, Dustin Hoffman and Daneil Day Lewis are a few famous Jewish actors who have earned fans in almost every nook and corner of the world. All these individuals have redefined the word ‘acting’ and have been inspiring millions of others to express themselves either on stage or in front of the camera.
