Some of these are hard for me to believe - that time has passed so quickly.  I still think of Uma Thurman as a young 30-something for some reason.

The first time I saw Uma Thurman, she was 18 and starring with Robert Downey, Jr. and Anthony Michael Hall in the 1988 teen comedy "Johnny Be Good."

I never knew that Tatum O'Neal and Ron O'Neal were related. :)

Not all that famous, but Sara Lane of The Virginian was the daughter of

the character actor Rusty Lane.

Don't think this one was brought up: Vic Morrow's daugter is Jennifer Jason Leigh, so good in films like The Big Picture, The Hudsucker Proxy, Mrs Parker and the Vicious Circle and Dolores Claiborne.

That's one I didn't know

John Carradines' three sons, David, Robert and Keith acted as did Keith's daughter, Martha Plimpton.

June Lockhart is the granddaughter of Gene Lockhart (her daughter Ann acted)

Lee Grant's Dinah Manoff (sp?) acted

Meryl's daughter(s) both have acted (use the Gummer name)

There was an actor called Cyril Cusack (sp?) and one of his daughters is married to Jeremy Irons (or was) and one acts on the Father Brown mysteries.

As for The Redgraves (right now to the Richardsons), Michael Redgrave was married to actress Rachel Kempson.

No, no! June Lockhart's parents were Gene and Kathleen Lockhart. They all appeared as members of the Cratchit family (with Terry Kilburn as Tiny Tim) in the 1938 version of "A Christmas Carol."

Anne Lockhart (pictured with Richard Hatch as Captain Apollo) was Lieutenant Sheba in the original 1970s version of "Battlestar Galactica." In a classic 1978 episode, Sheba was one of several shuttle pilots who battled the Cyclons when all of the male fighters became ill.

June Lockhart is the daughter, not the granddaughter of Gene Lockhart and Kathleen Lockhart.  They can all be seen in MGM's 1938 production of "A Christmas Carol".

The Irish actress Sinéad Cusack's father Cyril memorably played the fire captain in François Truffaut's 1966 version of Ray Bradbury's novel "Fahrenheit 451." She has been married to Oscar-winner Jeremy Irons since 1978. Their son Max is an actor, too.

The latest member of the Redgrave acting dynasty is the 28-year-old actress Daisy Bevan, the daughter of Joely Richardson and granddaughter of the late filmmaker Tony Richardson and Oscar-winner Vanessa Redgrave. Daisy is a fifth-generation member of the dynasty, which began in the 19th century.

Whitney was also one of the creators of the TV show One Day at a Time, inspired by her experience as a working mother.

I only learned while reading some of David Lynch's recent memoirs that Eric DaRae, who memorably played  the scary Leo Johnson on Twin Peaks, is the son of Aldo Ray, whom Lynch really wanted to cast in pretty much anything, but not long before his death, sadly, Ray told Lynch he just didn't think he could hold it together for an acting assignment anymore. I don't know else DaRae ever did, but he was impressive on that show.

Isn't that photo on the left the last photo ever taken of Sean? It's very haunting. Little did he know what lay ahead for him on this journey.

I sometimes go the other way in looking for a big star's not-as-successful parents in small roles.

David Cassidy's mother Evelyn Ward in an old episode of Perry Mason TV show:

And my favorite Joanna Moore, Tatum O'Neal's mother in a notable performance in an Andy Griffith episode:

While Tatum has some features of her famous dad, she's the spitting image of her sweet mom^^^

This is the last known photograph taken of Sean Flynn, along with fellow photojournalist Dana Stone, before they disappeared. Sean struggled for a few years trying to figure put what to do with his life as he lived in the shadow of his famous father. He clearly had the same adventurous spirit (working for a while as a big game hunting safari guide) but, tragically, his dare devil pursuit of a news story behind enemy lines cost him his life. The two disappeared in 1970, with Flynn declared legally dead in 1984. His mother, Lili Damita, spent a fortune in a futile search for her son.

Here's a stepdaughter and stepfather duo. The British actress Juliet Rylance, who stars as Della Street in the current HBO miniseries "Perry Mason," is the stepdaughter of Oscar-winner Sir Mark Rylance. He married her mother when Juliet was a child, and the future star took on his last name.
