Indiana August Affleck is the firstborn of actors Casey Affleck and Summer Phoenix. He drew his first breath in Amsterdam, Netherlands.
Casey wants Indiana to stay grounded and know the value of hard work. For instance, when the teenager hinted that it was time to start thinking about buying a car for him, his dad advised him to find a job.
Moreover, Indiana and his brother Atticus inspired Affleck to write the Light of My Life movie. He incorporated their conversations and some situations from their relationship into the plot. And when Casey asked Indiana to read the script, the boy gave him two pages of notes. So, he may become a good screenwriter one day.
A curious fact: Casey forgot to mention the names of Indiana and his brother in the Oscar acceptance speech and regretted that a lot.
