When you are born in a large family , living with brothers and sisters is not always a walk in the park. There are those who are bound by an indissoluble feeling but there are also those who argue constantly. Often parents, teachers or friends tend to compare the behaviors, merits or demerits of one and the other, creating those annoying competitions that, in the end, never lead to anything good. Let alone if one of the brothers is famous!
Fortunately, many brothers and sisters of actors, singers and characters of the star system in general managed to fulfill themselves from the working point of view despite the bulky surname. Some of them preferred to choose their own path away from the spotlight while others followed in the footsteps of their famous relatives while managing to carve out their own space and their own professional credibility.
