Long-lost Welles in the frame?

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

Re­mem­ber that in­ci­dent a few years back that saw Michael Bay claim­ing he was the long-lost son of John Franken­heimer? No? Well, trust me. It hap­pened. Now, Michael Lyn­d­say-Hogg, English di­rec­tor of the TV se­ries Brideshead Re­vis­ited, is to un­dergo a DNA test to es­tab­lish if he is the only son of Or­son Welles. Michael’s mother, Ir­ish ac­tor Geral­dine Fitzger­ald, cer­tainly had an af­fair with Welles while she was mar­ried to Lind­say-Hogg’s fa­ther, but it has taken a book by Chris Welles Feder, Or­son’s daugh­ter, to bring the mat­ter be­fore the doc­tors. “My mem­ory is that no­body knows for sure whether Or­son was Michael’s fa­ther,” Welles Feder said.
