SEC­OND-GEN­ER­A­TION STARS

These chips off the old block are be­com­ing as fa­mous as their folks

WHO - - The List -

Bil­lie Lourd, daugh­ter of Car­rie Fisher Star Wars

The only child of the late icon is a third­gen­er­a­tion star – her grand­par­ents were per­form­ers Ed­die Fisher and Deb­bie Reynolds. Lourd’s fa­ther, Bryan, is also in the busi­ness – he’s a part­ner at Cre­ative Artists Agency. The 26-year-old made her fea­ture film de­but in Star Wars: The Force Awak­ens and is part of Ryan Mur­phy’s en­sem­ble, hav­ing ap­peared in Scream Queens and Amer­i­can Hor­ror Story.

Pa­trick Sch­warzeneg­ger, son of Arnold Sch­warzeneg­ger

Born in 1993 to the ac­tion star/fu­ture politi­cian and his jour­nal­ist wife, Maria Shriver, Pa­trick, 25, has be­gun to make a name for him­self in the past cou­ple of years in pro­jects such as war minis­eries The Long Road Home and film Mid­night Sun op­po­site Bella Thorne, and will next be seen as the ti­tle char­ac­ter in Daniel Isn’t Real.

Zoë Kravitz, daugh­ter of Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet

At the time of her birth in 1988, it was her A Dif­fer­ent World star mother who acted, while her fa­ther was emerg­ing as one of the mu­sic in­dus­try’s big­gest new names. But since his turn in 2009’s Pre­cious, Lenny has added act­ing to his re­sumé. Zoë’s own act­ing CV is im­pres­sive, with the 30-year-old hav­ing fea­tured in the Fan­tas­tic Beasts, X-men and Di­ver­gent fran­chises.

Dakota John­son, daugh­ter of Melanie Grif­fith and Don John­son The Har­rad

Her par­ents met when Don starred in Ex­per­i­ment with Grif­fith’s mother, ac­tress Tippi He­dren, in the 1970s, but both be­came stars in the ’80s thanks to TV’S Mi­ami Vice and the film Work­ing Girl. After a lead role in Ben and Kate, Dakota, 29, shot to world­wide fame thanks to the Fifty Shades fran­chise.

Max Irons, son of Jeremy Irons and Sinéad Cu­sack

The 33-year-old ac­tor and model’s par­ents both act, each di­vid­ing their time be­tween film, tele­vi­sion and the­atre work. Over the past decade, Max has ap­peared in in­creas­ingly prom­i­nent films roles, in­clud­ing Red Rid­ing Hood, The Host and The Riot Club. In 2018, he was the lead char­ac­ter in spy se­ries Con­dor.

Scott East­wood, son of Clint East­wood

His first few roles – in­clud­ing his movie de­but in his fa­ther’s 2006 di­rec­to­rial ef­fort Flags of Our Fa­thers – were un­der the name Scott Reeves (the sur­name of his mother, Jace­lyn). But since 2009, he’s been work­ing pro­fes­sion­ally as Scott East­wood, in­clud­ing in box-of­fice hits Sui­cide Squad, The Fate of the Fu­ri­ous and Pa­cific Rim Upris­ing. The 32-year-old is cur­rently shoot­ing war drama The Out­post, in which he plays a char­ac­ter named Clint.
