Both children have grown up in the spotlight but their famous parents insist they've kept them grounded. At one point, Catherine revealed both her son and daughter wanted to follow in her and Michael's footsteps and enter the entertainment industry.

But now, it seems they're both looking at an alternative career path. Speaking to Parade in December 2022, the Welsh actress said: "They’d love to join the [acting] business! My son has done theater production since high school. They’ve both been to drama camp."

She then elaborated and revealed: "But they also love learning and are history buffs."With acting being just one of their passions, what else are Carys and Dylan interested in?

 "My son graduated from Brown University this year and he studied political science," Catherine added."He’s doing internships and working on political PACs."

And as for her youngest? "My daughter is currently studying foreign relations and diplomacy at school. They got their brains from me, though my husband likes to differ," she quipped.
