Sunyata Palmer is an American-born make-up artist. She is known for her work in movies like Meet the Applegates, Transylvania Twist, and others. But, Sunyata came to the limelight as the half-sister of the actress Winona Ryder.

Despite being a celebrity sibling, Sunyata has managed to live a life away from the media. Even though we do have some information on her professional life, her personal life seems to be out of grasp. People are constantly on the run to learn more about the Stranger Things actress’ mysterious sister.

Sunyata Palmer was born on October 51967, in San Francisco, California, USA. As of 2023, Palmer is 55 years old. She is the daughter of the actress Cynthia Palmer (mother), and John Palmer (father).

Palmer has one younger brother named Jubal Palmer who was born on 14 May 1969. However, her parents’ relationship didn’t last long. Similarly, it seems like her parents separated some years after her younger brother was born.

Although her parents have kept their short-lived marriage behind the curtain, we do know some parts of Sunyata’s early life. After the split, her mom walked down the aisle with American archivist Michael Horowitz. The couple also shared two kids Winona Ryder (b. October 29, 1971) and Uri Horowitz (b. 5 February 1976).
