Thandie Newton Brought Her Look-Alike Daughter to the Dumbo Premiere
Thandie Newton may not have a clone, but she certainly has a mini-me!
The Westworld star, 46, walked the red carpet alongside her lookalike 14-year-old daughter Nico Parker at the London premiere of Disney’s live-action Dumbo on Thursday.
The mother-daughter duo looked glamorous with Newton dressed in a gray sequined dress with furry detailing and matching silver heels.
Parker wore a pale pink gown with an orange overlay with her curls held back in a low ponytail. The young actress stars as Milly Farrier, the daughter of Colin Farrell’s character Holt Farrier in Dumbo.
In real life, the teen is the middle child of Newton and her husband, director-writer Ol Parker. Newton and the Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again director also share daughter Ripley, 18, and son, Booker, 5.
In January, Newton said she fully supported her daughter’s film career while at the 2019 Golden Globes.
“She’s definitely taking her own path but yeah, she’s acting,” the actress told Ryan Seacrest of Nico. “She was 12 when she made Dumbo, the live-action movie that’s been beautifully directed by Tim Burton. She’s now 14 — the movie has obviously taken a couple of years, because of CGI and so on.”
Newton continued, “It’s absolutely breathtaking. I’m so thrilled for her. And she’s got me to just be this she-tiger, waiting to pounce at any moment, just looking after her.”
Dumbo — also starring Danny DeVito and Michael Keaton — flies into theaters on March 29.
