Today is Kurt Russell‘s 68th birthday. Not only is the actor a legend in Hollywood, still going strong, he’s also responsible for creating another actor in Wyatt Russell. That got us thinking about acting dynasties, which litter the cinematic landscape. So, for Russell’s birthday, let us consider other actors and actresses who have spawned a new generation of actors!
Russell obviously is one and even has been a long-time father figure to Kate Hudson, the daughter of his wife Goldie Hawn. That’s four industry players right there, a rarity in the business, even when you consider how often children follow in their parents footsteps out in Hollywood. Russell is hardly the only one though, as you’ll see next. There’s a ton of famous acting families, and that’s putting it mildly.
Other acting dynasties include Blythe Danner and her daughter Gwyneth Paltrow, Vanessa Redgrave and her daughters Joely Richardson and Miranda Richardson, Martin Sheen and his two sons Emilio Estevez and Charlie Sheen, plus Donald Sutherland and his son Kiefer Sutherland. There’s also Kirk Douglas and Michael Douglas, as well as Jon Voight and his daughter Angelina Jolie. Plus, we can’t forget about John Barrymore and his daughter Drew Barrymore, along with Stellen Skarsgard and his boy Alexander Skarsgard, can we?
For Kurt Russell’s birthday, which actors are your favorite who have also become parents to actors as well? There are plenty of other names we did not mention. Let us know your favorites!
