There are many occasions in Hollywood where children follow in their parents footsteps and follow them into acting. That is exactly what has happened with the four children of Mark Wahlberg, who he has with his with Rhea Durham. The couples kids, Ella Rae, 10, Michael Robert, 7, Brendan Joseph, 4, Grace Margaret, 3, all had a cameo appearance in the upcoming Transformers 4, in which Mark plays the lead role.
Wahlberg explained, "My kids just did a cameo ... just as scared people in the street looking up, but they did a great job. I was so nervous because Michael doesn't have time for bad performances. You have to understand, you're shooting a $300m movie, you've got a lot going on. He's got five, six takes. If you ain't got it, you're done. I didn't want to see my kids get clipped. They were excited, but they started to get mad at me because I'm trying to over-direct them. It went great."
He added: "For him to take the time to set up the specific shot that he actually wants to put in the movie for my kids. I don't like asking for those kinds of things. I was going to send him a text, but I just wanted to wait and thank him in person. I gave him a big hug yesterday."
As well as starring Mark Wahlberg and featuring his children, Transformers 4 also star Jack Reynor, Stanley Tucci, Sophia Myles and Nicola Peltz. Transformers 4, which is officially titled Transformers: Age of Extinction, is directed by Michael Bay and will open on June 27, 2014 in the US, before then hitting the big screen in the UK on July 10, 2014.
