year ago

Some kids decide to head into the same industry as their parents, and the same can happen to Hollywood celebrities’ offspring. And it’s no wonder why these kids want to have a taste of fame themselves, and they end up following in their parents’ footsteps while sometimes even stealing the spotlight from them. Here, we’re taking a look at famous people that you didn’t know had parents who are also A-listers.

1. Ty Tennant as young Aegon Targaryen from the series, House of the Dragon, is David Tennant’s son.

2. Gaia Wise as Jo Reynolds from Silent Witness is the daughter of Emma Thompson.

3. Jake Cannavale as Caesar from the mini-series, The Offer, is the son of Bobby Cannavale.
