Liev (pronounced Lee-ev) is the son of Heather, a painter, and 'Tell Schreiber', a theatrical actor with a small role in The Keeper (1976). When he was one, the family moved from San Francisco to Canada. His parents were divorced when he was five. He and his mother moved to New York, where she drove a cab. During that time, they lived as squatters in abandoned buildings. His mother taught him to read, and she also forbade him from seeing color movies. He grew up seeing silent and black & white movies at a local revival house and particularly enjoyed those of 'Charles Chaplin'. His mother now lives in an ashram in Virginia. He began acting at Hampshire College and continued at the Yale University School of Drama in 1992. He originally wanted to be a playwright, but his teacher encouraged him to become an actor.

  • Grew up in Lower East Side New York. Graduated from Friends Seminary High School in Manhattan.
  • Attended high school with actress 'Amanda Peet (I)' (qv) when he was a senior and she was a freshman.
  • His mother says she named him after her favorite author, 'Leo Tolstoy' (qv) whose Russian name was Lev (pronounced "lee-ev"). His father says he was named after a doctor in San Francisco who saved his mother's life. Last name means "writer" in German.
  • Is a good friend of 'Dustin Hoffman' (qv).
  • After his parents divorced, he and his siblings saw their father very little during childhood.
  • Son of actor 'Tell Schreiber' (qv) and Heather. Has four half brothers and one half sister, including brother 'Pablo Schreiber' (qv).
