Was Peter Sellers Jewish?

Peter Sellers

Well, to make a long story short, Peter Sellers was Jewish!

Since Peter Sellers's mother was Jewish, and in Judaism one's religion is based on one's mother's religion, then that makes him also Jewish. His father was not Jewish.

Peter Sellers (who's full birth name was Richard Henry Sellers) was born on 8 September 1925 in England.

He was an English film actor, comedian and singer. He is best known for movies such as Dr. Strangelove (1964), What's New, Pussycat? (1965), Casino Royale (1967), The Party (1968), Being There (1979) and five films of the Pink Panther series (1963–78).
