Family Tree Tuesday – Nicolas Cage
Oscar winning actor Nicolas Cage comes from one of Hollywood’s most legendary families. Born Nicolas Kim Coppola, Cage changed his name early in his career to avoid the appearance of nepotism as the nephew of acclaimed director Francis Ford Coppola. Cage’s cousin, Sofia Coppola became the first American woman to be nominated for an Academy Award for Best Director for her film, Lost in Translation. His aunt Talia Shire is also an Oscar-nominated actress and producer. Her sons, actor Jason Schwartzman and Robert Carmine, lead singer of the band Rooney, have also enjoyed successful film careers.
