Aled Jones Daughter: Aled Jones, one of the most well-known former child stars in the United Kingdom, understands what it’s like to deal with the demands of growing up in the spotlight.
As a result, it comes as no surprise that the Welsh musician, who rose to popularity with the song Walking In The Air from the film The Snowman, has been giving advice to his adolescent daughter Emilia about her future in the film industry.
“The only thing my father has said from the beginning is that I will never be forced to do anything I don’t want to do,” said Jones, who will appear in the upcoming film Brimstone at the age of 15.
In the same way, I believe that his parents were the same way with him, which accounts for his lack of delinquency. He once performed at the Hollywood Bowl and was subsequently invited to appear on a popular Saturday night television show in America, but he declined, stating that he only wanted to return home to meet his fiancée and play football with his friends. As a result, that is exactly what they did.”
In exchange for a role, Emilia Jones is willing to get her hands dirty — even if it means getting coated in fish guts. CODA is a film in which the 19-year-old English actress portrays the daughter of a deaf fishing boat captain. And so it was with much excitement that she stepped onto a Massachusetts pier at 4 a.m. to begin her apprenticeship in the trawling industry.
Onset, Jones and her co-stars Troy Kotsur (who plays her father) and Daniel Durant worked together for 12 hours on a boat, hauling in nets and wading into nasty intestines (who portrays her brother). And she seemed to be enjoying herself – for the most part. The fisherwoman confides, laughing, that she “would put a fish back in the sea any time one of the more tough fishermen would turn around.”
Walking in the Air hitmaker said that his son Lucas has a “beautiful trouble voice” and that his daughter Emilia is already well on her way to carving out a lucrative Hollywood career in an interview with Express.co.uk.
Emilia, 14, appeared in the all-star film Brimstone, which included Kit Harrington, Dakota Fanning, and Guy Pearce among its cast members, which was released earlier in the year.
However, despite the fact that the adolescent – who has also been in small roles in Pirates of the Caribbean and Doctor Who – has shown promise, Aled said that she still has her feet firmly planted on the ground.
“My daughter possesses a high level of maturity and calmness. She takes everything in stride and genuinely enjoys her work as an actress. All we can do is lend our support to her “he explained.
Emilia, however, is not the only gifted child that Aled and his wife Claire Fossett have welcomed into their home, as he revealed that their son Lucas has inherited his dazzling voice.
Although it does not appear that the youngster has any plans to follow in his father’s footsteps, it is possible that he will.
The Songs of Praise host said that he was not interested in pursuing a singing career, despite having a wonderful treble voice. “He’s too busy with his lego!!!” he said.
