Fonda

The Hollywood dynasty’s patriarch, Henry Fonda distinguished himself on screen from the 1930s with iconic roles in such features as The Grapes of Wrath, 12 Angry Men or On Golden Pond, opposite his daughter, Jane. Jane Fonda became herself a celebrated actress during the 1960s and 1970s, earning accolades for Klute and Coming Home while becoming a futuristic sex symbol with Barbarella. Despite her glamorous pedigree, the actress established herself as an outspoken activist which infused her persona with a hint of rebellion that clearly echoed with that of her brother Peter after his role in legendary film, Easy Rider. The younger generation has lost a little of the family spark as Jane Fonda’s son, Troy Garrity appears mostly in supporting roles on television while Bridget, Peter Fonda’s daughter lost her 1990s’ it-girl title once she disappeared from screens.
