Gina Torres was born in Manhattan, New York City, in the Flower Fifth Avenue Hospital on 25th April 1969. She is the third of three children born to parents of multiracial Cuban descent. Her father worked for the New York Daily News and for La Prensa as a typesetter.

She is a mezzo soprano but also trained in jazz and performed in the gospel choir. Although she applied to and was accepted by several colleges, she couldn’t afford to attend and so persued a dream of permorming instead.
