Robert Downey Jr’s Adult Son Is a Famous Rocker
Indio Falconer Downey, the 25-year-old son of actor Robert Downey Jr., has a rock band called The Dose and his resemblance to his mother is uncanny.
In the rock band’s Instagram account, the duo (Indio and Ralph Alexander) often share photos of their concerts and other activities they do. On Robert’s 54th birthday, the band uploaded a collage showing them next to Indio’s father and wishing him a happy birthday.
“Happy 54th birthday to @robertdowneyjr HAVE THE BEST DAY EVER #MeLuvu #IndioDowney #RalphAlexander #TheDose #RobertDowneyJr” wrote the band in the caption.
THE ACTOR SUPPORTS HIS SON’S CAREER
Robert has also shown his support on social media by uploading images of him next to the group saying that he was a “groupie” and urging his followers to check out his son’s band.
“Congrats are in order for my firstborn, and I’m proud to oblige."
Even though Indio and Robert share some physical similarities, the 25-year-old man’s resemblance to his mother, Deborah Falconer, is undeniable as he looks more like her.
INDIO’S ADDICTION PROBLEM
Unfortunately, Indio inherited a very negative aspect from his father’s side, and he struggled with it for a while: drug addiction. Back in March 2016, though, Robert uploaded a post on Facebook in which he congratulated his son on his sobriety journey.
Indio’s felony cocaine possession conviction was dismissed after he completed a 20-month rehab program, and his father, who also had a very dark past with drugs, couldn’t be prouder.
“Congrats are in order for my firstborn, and I’m proud to oblige. Having braved the crucible of addiction (and pleased the court), his ongoing commitment to recovery continues to inspire and amaze,” Robert wrote in the post.
He added that Indio has been passionate about music for as long as he could remember and that, with his bandmate Ralph, he had witnessed their “dedication, consistency, and determination to grow as artists.”
INDIO GOT HIS FAMILY’S SUPPORT
Talking to People about Indio’s arrest, Robert said that there was a “genetic component to addiction” and his son probably inherited it. He pointed out, though, that his family was supporting him throughout the journey and that they were all determined to “rally behind him” and help him become the “man he is capable of being.”
At the moment, Indio is focused on his music career while Robert is probably taking a well-deserved break after “Avengers: Endgame” broke records.
