Even though Lily Mo Sheen, 10, ventured into acting in mom Kate Beckinsale‘s film Everybody’s Fine, her dad Michael Sheen is hoping that his daughter will steer clear of the acting world. “Frankly, I hope she won’t go down the same route as me and her mum, because I know how much frustration and heartache there can be in this profession,” says Michael. Instead, he wants his little girl to follow her passion for writing.

“She wants to be a writer right now, and she’s got an aptitude for it. But in the end, I’ll support her in whatever she decides to do.”

Michael can currently be seen in Frost/Nixon and Underworld: Rise of the Lycans.

It is so sad that no one knows that Michael Sheen is her father..
And that the press always talks about Len Wiseman as her stepfather

Hope he gets to see her often.. Kate looks great… and their daughter is so tall!!

Bee on

Lily looks so much like her dad! I wonder if Kate will have a child with husband Len?
