How old is Frankie Jonas?

Franklin Nathaniel Jonas was born in Wyckoff, New Jersey USA, on 28 September 2000 – his zodiac sign is Libra and he holds American nationality. He is an actor who is perhaps still best known for his portrayal of Frankie Lucas in the comedy family musical series “Jonas”, which aired in 2009 and 2010, and was created by Michael Curtis and Roger S. H. Schulman. The series starred Kevin Jonas, Chelsea Kane and Nicole Gale Anderson, and follows The Jonas Brothers during their everyday lives – it won five awards and was nominated for seven others including one Primetime Emmy.

Childhood and educationand

Frankie was raised in Wyckoff alongside his three older brothers Kevin, Joe and Nick, by their parents who are of very mixed European, French-Canadian and American Cherokee. Their father Paul Kevin Jonas Sr. was a musician and an ordained minister of the Assemblies of God Church, while their mother Denise Marie was a singer and a sign language teacher. All three of Frankie’s brothers are actors and musicians, who are best known for having founded the band The Jonas Brothers, and because Frankie isn’t a member of the band, he is often referred to as ‘The Bonus Jonas’.

Frankie became interested in acting at a very early age, as he was motivated by his parents and brothers, and so joined his elementary school’s drama club at the age of seven – he actually launched his acting career when he was nine. He was interested in sports while attending high school, as he played both football and soccer, and upon matriculation in 2018, decided not to pursue a college degree but to focus on his career as an actor.
