Each year, in preparation for the Golden Globe Awards, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association chooses its version of a grand marshal, which it calls ‘Miss Golden Globe’. This honor is usually given to the daughter of a famous actor or actress (or acting couple). The honoree is usually in her late teens, or early 20s, and is getting started in the industry. In the past, such winners have been Dakota Johnson (daughter of Melanie Griffeth and Don Johnson), Francesca Eastwood (daughter of Clint Eastwood) and Lorraine Nicholson (daughter of Jack Nicholson).
For the upcoming 2014 Golden Globe Awards, the honoree is Sosie Bacon, the 21-year old daughter of stellar acting couple Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick. Long recognized for being the model of how a Hollywood marriage can be stable and enduring, Sedgwick and Bacon largely shielded their children from the glare of the spotlight to give them a normal upbringing.
Until she was 17 years old, Sosie only had one acting credit. It came in 2005, in the movie “Loverboy”, when she played they 10-year old version of the main character, who was played by her mother, Kyra.
Even after she turned 17, acting remained a family affair for Sosie. She joined her mother’s award-winning TV series “The Closer” for a 4-episode story arc. Later this year, Sosie will take on her first solo acting role in the film “Off Season”. The adorable Sosie comes from good acting stock and has been raised right. It should be refreshing to watch her career develop.
While it is not probably not that big of a surprise to find out that Sosie has a tattoo (as so many young celebrities are getting inked these days) it may be surprising to learn that her mother probably had no issue with it, as Kyra Sedgwick has a few tattoos of her own. Sosie’s tattoo is a pretty design of a tree bending in the wind.
