Thora was born on March 11, 1982, in Los Angeles, California. She is the oldest child of Jack Birch and Carol Connors. Her family’s real surname was Biersch. It is of German-Jewish, Scandinavian, French-Canadian, and Italian ancestry.
Her name, Thora, is taken from Thor, the Norse god of thunder and lightning. She admitted that her parents would have named her Thor if she had been a boy. Thora also has a brother named Kian Bolt Birch. Thora’s parents were her business managers when she was a kid. They were also former adult film actors, having appeared in the movie Deep Throat.
They did not have a good experience in the entertainment industry. So, they failed to encourage Thora when the latter decided to embark on a similar journey of becoming an actor like her parents. Thora got her first break at the age of four when she auditioned for a Quaker Oats commercial.
