Well, to make a long story short, Daniel Day-Lewis is Jewish!
Since Daniel Day-Lewis's mother is Jewish, and in Orthodox Judaism and Conservative Judaism, those with a Jewish mother (or those who underwent a halakhic conversion) are considered Jewish, then that makes him Jewish. His father is not Jewish.
Daniel Day-Lewis (whose full birth name is Daniel Michael Blake Day-Lewis) was born on 29 April 1957 in London, England, UK.
He has won three Academy Awards for Best Actor, for his portrayals of Christy Brown in My Left Foot (1989), Daniel Plainview in There Will Be Blood (2007), and Abraham Lincoln in Lincoln (2012), a feat which makes him to date one of three male actors to win three Oscars.
