Lily Sheen's Advice Parents Kate Beckinsale And Michael Sheen Gave Her About Acting – Exclusive

Lily Sheen’s parents, Kate Beckinsale and Michael Sheen, are both well-known stars with diverse back catalogs of work. As a result, Lily has grown up watching her parents navigate the entertainment industry. Discussing how her parents supported her when she scored her part in “The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent,” Sheen told The List, “To be honest, they’re not super advice-y people. They’ve been incredible. It’s been lovely, any time I need help, or I need to curl up and cry.”

Despite already spending years honing her craft, Sheen noted that pursuing an acting career is no mean feat. “In terms of acting in general, it can be quite a scary industry regardless,” she said. “Even if you’re not someone like me who’s had this incredible privilege of having people actually in the industry.” She explained, “On so many levels, I feel lucky to have them, but even as allies, to be able to call up and to understand the process … The audition process, it’s horrible. They’ve always been great about being able to pick me up a little bit and put me right back.”

As for how she feels about the work her parents have produced over the years, Sheen said, “[T]hey’re amazing. I’m in awe of their careers.”

“The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent” is available now on digital, and will be on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD, and On Demand June 21 from Lionsgate.
