Kate Beckinsale and Michael Sheen's daughter Lily has inherited acting skills from her thespian parents - she dazzled an audience of her local drama group by taking on a starring role in musical Mamma Mia!.
The former couple's daughter, who turns 10 later this month, attends an after school club for budding stars and impressed an assembled crowd when she performed the lead part of Sophie in the Abba-inspired adaptation.
But the youngster also had to take on a male role during the show - which she ended up enjoying a little too much.
Sheen tells WENN, "Lily did a production of Mamma Mia! with her local drama group before Christmas where she surprised us all by being able to sing brilliantly.
"She played Sophie . the starring role! In one performance she was Sophie and in the other one she played the guy Sophie gets married to, but because it was all girls they just cut all the boy parts.
"She had to draw a moustache on herself for the second performance and get married to Sophie . that was her favourite bit!"
But Sheen is convinced Lily won't make the transition to Hollywood when she is older - because she prefers to be behind the camera.
He adds, "She.s a writer, she wants to write. It.s what she loves doing, so she will probably do a bit of that."
