There have been some pretty unforgettable father-daughter combinations in the world of entertainment. Henry and Jane Fonda, Steven and Liv Tyler, and Francis and Sofia Coppola all come to mind as examples.
It may be a little too early to add Adam Sandler and Sunny Sandler into that distinguished mix, but the comedian’s daughter has shown a natural ability to thrive in front of the camera. At 13 years old, Sunny’s life could take a few different career trajectories, and it will be exciting to see what her future has in store.
Sunny Madeline Sandler was born on November 2, 2008 in Los Angeles, California. It’s not surprising that she was raised in the entertainment capital of the world, and she has already had exposure to some high profile projects as a result.
In addition to acting, Sunny also enjoys playing tennis, playing video games and singing during her formative years.
Who is Sunny Sandler’s father?
Of course, most people are extremely familiar with the work of Sunny’s parents, Adam and Jackie. Adam Sandler has been one of the most popular comedians and actors in the world dating back to the late 1980’s.
In the early part of his career, Sandler appeared on “The Cosby Show”, and was an integral part of the recurring “Saturday Night Live” lineup in the 1990’s.
In the middle part of that decade, his movie career exploded, starring in rewatchable hilarious flicks like Billy Madison, The Wedding Singer, Big Daddy and The Waterboy.
Sandler would continue his ascent in the 2000’s as well, in movies like Mr. Deeds, 50 First Dates, and Click. More recently, Sandler appeared in Uncut Gems in 2019, about a frenetic jeweler looking to cash in on a huge gamble.
Who is Sunny Sandler’s mother?
Jackie Sandler(mn Titone) has been married to Adam since 2003. Rumor has it that actor Rob Schneider helped introduce Jackie to her future husband during the production of Big Daddy.
While she has appeared in movies her husband starred in such as Eight Crazy Nights and Zookeeper, Jackie had a successful career as a fashion model before she entered the world of acting.
Adam and Jackie are still happily married as they embark on close to twenty years of marital bliss.
What movies has Sunny Sandler been in?
Sunny’s debut on the big screen came before she could even read. As a two year old, she appeared in the movie Grown Ups.
Over the course of the past decade or so, Sunny’s acting resume is getting pretty extensive, even though she is a young teenager.
She has been in Just Go With It, Blended and The Wrong Missy and her latest movie was Home Team. She’s also lent her voice to various roles in the Hotel Transylvania movies as well.
According to her IMDB page, Sunny has 18 acting credits to her name, including the voiceover work she has done. Most of her movie credits have been in her father’s movies.
Who is Sunny Sandler’s sister?
While Sunny has an extremely bright future for herself in whatever she decides to pursue, she is not the only Sandler child who is quickly rising up the entertainment ranks.
Sunny’s older sister, Sadie Sandler, also seems to have the acting gene. Sadie has been involved in a lot of the same projects as her sister over the years, with a similar on-screen and voice over resume as Sunny.
Sunny Sandler has enjoyed some pretty cool moments with her family in the public eye. During quarantine in May 2020, she made a brief appearance on the Jimmy Kimmel show during an interview with her dad.
The Sandlers and Kimmel had a good laugh at Adam’s expense, as apparently Sunny pointed out that her dad had an unsightly hair in his ear.
After Adam shaved it off, he started bleeding, which provided some unintentional comedy during the height of the pandemic.
In 2019, Sunny displayed incredible vocal prowess in a solo act towards the beginning of Adam’s comedy show in New Jersey. Then just 10 years old, she belted out a song from “The Greatest Showman”, which gave us a glimpse into just how talented of a singer she already was.
Later that year, Sunny would team up with her sister and her dad on stage at a benefit concert. While Adam played the guitar, Sunny and Sadie performed a beautiful rendition of the Taylor Swift song, “Lover.” The girls showed an impressive array of range during the roughly four minute song, doing justice to a tune from one of their favorite artists.
