The connection between Big Mo from Eastenders and Sirius Black from Harry Potter is that they’re sister and brother. Laila was a latecomer to the acting scene as it wasn’t until she was in her 50s that she started acting, thanks in part to Gary.

Though they don’t really look too much alike, Goldie and Kate are mother and daughter. When Kate was 18 months old, her biological father left the family and from then on she was raised by Goldie and her actor boyfriend Kurt Russell, who Kate considers to be her father.

You may not realise it, but Melanie is actually Dakota’s mother. It took her over a year to finally watch some of her daughter’s most famous film, 50 Shades of Grey. She’s only seen a small part of it as she couldn’t bring herself to watch her daughter’s more explicit scenes.

8. Julia Roberts and Emma Roberts

The connection? Julia is Emma’s aunt. Spending time on the sets of Julia’s films as a child encouraged Emma to follow in her aunt’s footsteps and pursue acting.
