Meryl Streep's daughter Mamie following in mom's footsteps

04/26/2007 at 02:33 PM ET

Meryl Streep‘s eldest daughter Mary Gummer, 23, most commonly known as Mamie is planning on following her mother’s footsteps and become an actress. Eighteen months ago she got her first role in Broadway’s Mr Marmalade and is currently doing some modeling as well. Despite her edgy look, she grew up in rural Connecticut with brother Henry, 27, and sisters Grace, 20, and Louisa, 15, wearing jeans and sneakers.

As for her famous mother, Mamie says,

At home she’s not Meryl Streep – she’s Mum; she’s great and I love her a lot.

I love Meryl Streep, so I’m totally rooting for Mamie. I hope she is successful.

She’s doing movies, too – “The Hoax,” with Richard Gere, which just came out, and this summer’s “Evening,” where she plays the younger version of her mom.

Wow! Is she the mirror image of her mother, or what?!

She won a Theatre World award for her performance in Mr. Marmalade.

Edgy look??? What edgy?

I’ve never seen her before but in this picture she looks as fresh and wholesome as a piece of apple pie.

Where did edgy come from???
