Cassavetes

The Cassavetes are not only an iconic artistic couple but also a talented family that has film running through its veins. Celebrity children often have spent their youths on sets and in jet set parties but Zoe, Nick and Alexandra Cassavetes lived a normal bohemian childhood existence during which they did not go to films but films came to them: ‘my dad shot in our house a lot,’ according to Nick Cassavetes. That’s why, quite obviously, when you grow up in such a family, the question is not much whether you’d take upon filmmaking but when. Thus Nick Cassavetes directed the moving She’s So Lovely while Zoe Cassavetes made her indie débuts with Broken English. The incarnation of Non-Hollywood glamour, the Cassavetes have joined legendary tribes such as the Coppola family- no surprise their two darling heiresses, Sofia Coppola and Zoe Cassavetes are close friends.
