Celebs Relatives Played A Cameo:
Most of the time, a cameo is given by famous faces. Isn’t that the whole point of a cameo? But sometimes you miss out on an awesome cameo because you couldn’t recognize the person.

We have listed some of the best and most fun family unions on the screen that we didn’t even know. Find out the cameos played by the relations of celebs in movies.

Remember the fans who stopped Thor for a selfie when he and Loki were looking for Odin? One of the fans was none other than, Taylor Hemsworth, the lucky cousin of Chris Hemsworth.

MCU is turning into a family business with three instances on this list. Digital resurrection and CGI de-aging are on the rise in Hollywood, bringing back the late legends on the screen.
