Moreover, both her artistic parents supported Cleopatra’s ambitions to act and dance and influenced her early exposure to art and film.

In one video, Cleopatra said, “I’m super grateful that I have there’s an amazing, creative expansive thinker for parents

Moreover, she describes her father as a hippie anarchist and a movie lover who exposed her to various film genres and styles.

Even after parting romantically, Cleopatra’s parents prioritized their daughter’s career without compromise!

Cleopatra Coleman parents met in Los Angeles. Although there is no exact detail on how they met, they later relocated to Australia and expanded their family with Cleopatra.

Meanwhile, Cleaopatra’s first experience of performance was clambering to the front during a belly dance class that her mother led. Her mother taught her ballet and modern dance.

Likewise, her acting debut was at age 7 in one of her father’s short films, Trains. It was her first onscreen role before she began pursuing acting full-time years later.

She was born in Bryon Bay, Australia. Although she loved it there, her irresistible calling to act led her to persuade her parents to leave the place.

Cleopatra said, “I’m very, very blessed to grow up in such an open, creative community where it’s not weird to want to be an artist. But it’s also a small town, and so ambition doesn’t go with that.

Although her parents were already separated, Cleopatra Coleman moved to Melbourne with them. To support her career, they all lived together at first. Later, there she landed a TV series called Silversun.

She quickly landed more and more roles. However, being a mixed-race actress in the Australian industry, she found herself offered limited jobs. Nevertheless, Cleopatra is proud of her mixed heritage and ethnicity.

Whether in hard times or good times, her parents supported her; they always had her back. So, it no wonder Cleopatra considers her parents to be among her best gifts.

So, being born into an intense, creative-energy household with this unwavering support has made everything possible for her career.
