Seeing Double? Hollywood’s Golden Age Actors and Their Grandchildren

For some people, talent is in their DNA. It’s not uncommon for celebrities to have other stars in their families; we just don’t realize it most of the time. Some people were born to be in showbiz. For them, entertainment is just part of the family business, and it comes naturally to them. You would be surprised to find out that some of your favorite actors from this generation are descendants of huge stars from Hollywood’s Golden Age.

Celebrities don’t normally proclaim who their famous grandparents are, mostly because they want to make it on their own. And also because they don’t want people to look at them differently. If you tell someone your grandfather is Clark Gable or that your grandma is Elizabeth Taylor, people may automatically assume you got everything (including your career) handed to you on a silver platter.

Without further ado, these are the grandchildren of some Hollywood Giants, proving that talent runs in their blood.

She had several leading roles in TV shows, like Arrested Development, Search Party, and Drunk History. Alia enjoyed success on the small screen, but she has also been in movies, including The Runaways, Duck Butter, and First Cow. I guess it makes sense that she has the acting bug in her DNA.

In addition to his talent as an actor, McQueen was also known for his passion for racing. He gave the acting bug to his grandson, Steven R. McQueen.

Instead of picking up a guitar, he’s been focusing on his studies. As of 2018, Arthur was busy getting his education at Yale University. Something tells me he doesn’t need tuition money. His Beatle grandfather probably has that covered.

Bob Dylan made a name for himself by being too cool for school. He has an evident musical talent, but he still manages to stay slightly reclusive and give off a mysterious air. This isn’t easy to pull off when you have millions of fans, but it seemed to come quite naturally to the musician.

His grandson Pablo has dreams of following in his footsteps, but he wants to do it on his own. He told Rolling Stone, “My lineage is just my lineage at this point. I’m not going to run from it.
