Alia Shawkat: Granddaughter of Paul Burke
With a name as unique as hers, it would seem likely for Alia to become an actress all on her own. But, it turns out that her acting talent may be somewhat genetic. She is the granddaughter of Paul Burke, an actor who was famous in the 1960s for shows like "Naked City" and "Twelve O’Clock High".
30-year-old Alia Shawkat has also made a name for herself in Hollywood. Her most famous role to date was as Maeby Fünke on the hit show "Arrested Development", a role which she held from 2003 to 2018.
Bridget Fonda: Granddaughter of Henry Fonda
The Fonda family has produced a number of talented actors. The veteran actor Henry Fonda definitely passed down his acting genes to his family members. You already know about Jane Fonda and her great-granddaughter, Viva. But, the family has many more members to boast about. Bridget is Peter Fonda’s daughter, who is Henry Fonda's second son.
Bridget is popular for her roles in "Single White Female", "Point of No Return", "Jackie Brown", and "The Godfather: Part III". Unfortunately, she was in a serious car accident in 2003 and has since given up acting.
Sean Flynn: Great-Grandson of Errol Flynn
Sean Flynn was definitely born with acting genes. He is the great-grandson of the iconic swashbuckling actor, Errol Flynn. Errol was an actor during the Golden Age of Hollywood. He was famous for playing Robin Hood in the first-ever "Robin Hood" film in 1938, which catapulted him to worldwide fame.
Sean Flynn got his acting start in the early 2000s when he played Chase Matthews on "Zoey 101". Since then, he’s mostly shied away from the public eye and has been living a more low-key life. Errol's son is also named Sean Flynn, who was an actor but left show business in lieu of becoming a photojournalist. While covering the Vietnam War, he disappeared and was later declared dead.

Her legacy also lives on in her granddaughter, Emma Ferrer. Emma, a British-Swiss model, bears a great resemblance to Audrey. Emma was born to Hepburn’s son Sean Ferrer, and works as an actor and a model, appearing on the cover of Harper's Magazine in 2014. Her first role in a film was in "The Man in the Attic".
