Lenny’s acting will inspire people for years to come, so let’s take a look at the star’s life, including his marriage, children and earlier years.

Who is Lenny Von Dohlen’s ex-wife?

Lenny Von Dohlen’s ex wife is called Marina Drujiko. The pair were married for just one year, from 2007-2008.

Marina was born on the 22nd of November 1983 in Saint Petersburg, Russia. Although there is little information available about her parents and childhood, we do know that she moved to the United States during this time, where she eventually studied at the New York film academy.

The 38-year-old currently works as a model. She has had a successful career in the industry – working with huge brands such as Chanel and Dior.

Lenny Von Dohlen has a 21-year-old daughter named Hazel Von Dohlen who many think is his child with Marina, however Hazel is from Lenny’s previous relationship.

Lenny Von Dohlen’s life explored

Lenny was born on the 22nd of December 1958 in Augusta, GA to Gay and Leonard Harold Von Dohlen.

Before he realised his passion for television, Lenny wanted to pursue a career as a jockey. However, this quickly changed when he grew too tall, as the actor ended up growing to 6ft 1.

Instead, Lenny attended the University of Texas, where he majored in drama. This is where Lenny grew to love acting, and those around him learnt he had a great skill.

After this, the Twin Peaks star turned to theatre, where he starred in productions such as Asian Shade and The Team.
