Anthony Michael Hall was born Michael Anthony Thomas Charles Hall on April 14, 1968, in West Roxbury, Massachusetts. His mother, Mercedes, was a blues-jazz singer, and his father, Larry, owned an auto body shop. Anthony's parents divorced when he was just 6 months old, and he moved to the West Coast with his mother at the age of 3. Less than two years later, they returned to the East Coast and eventually settled in New York City. Hall has a half-sister, Mary Chestaro, from Mercedes' second marriage, and he studied at St. Hilda's & St. Hugh's School of New York and the Professional Children's School. He started acting when he was 8 years old, and his mother served as his manager during the 1980s before letting her second husband, show business manager Thomas Chestaro, take over. Hall uses the name Anthony instead of Michael because when he began his acting career, another actor named Michael Hall was already a member of the Screen Actors Guild.
