Timothee’s mother, Nicole Flender is an actress, but she isn’t the only member of the family in the business. His mother’s father, Harold Flender was a screenwriter and writer. The brother of his mother is the famous director Rodman Flender, so it’s easy to see where Timothee gets is talent as there are three family members on his mother’s side, who have chosen careers in the film industry.
He’s big into social media
