Life and career

Lobel is the oldest of three siblings from the same parents. Mike Lobel has an older half-brother; they share the same father.

He attended ESA from 1998 to 2003, first majoring in music (he studied percussion) then later switching to drama. While at the school he formed several musical groups and is currently working on his solo project. It was in his graduating year at ESA that he began working as an actor.

In 2003, Lobel made his film debut in an adaptation of Oliver Twist directed by Jacob Tierney entitled Twist, in which he played a small role as a street thug alongside actor Nick Stahl.
