6 Actors/Actresses Who Shared Characters With Their Children
Showbiz is one of those professions that often runs in the family. Many big stars share an interest in acting with their children, and what better way to work together than to play the same character! It rarely happens, but when it does it’s pretty awesome. Here’s a list of 6 stars who shared roles with their children!
6. Dasany Kristal Gonzalez and Dascha Polanco
Orange is the New Black does a lot of flashbacks which can sometimes be tricky with casting, but the producers got lucky when it came to portraying a younger version of Daya back in season 5. The reason she looks so much like Dascha Polanco is because the actress who plays the character in present day is her daughter, Dasany Kristal Gonzalez!
5. Alice Richmond and Tina Fey
Tina Fey’s 30 Rock was a hugely successful sitcom that lasted an impressive seven seasons. As the creator and starring actress in the show, it’s no surprise Fey found a way to incorporate her daughter into the show and her daughter definitely proved she’s got her moms funny bone and acting chops! In a flashback episode back in 2012, Fey’s daughter, Alice Richmond, did a hilarious adaptation of a young version of Liz Lemon.
