Even though some parents never accept it, the truth is that some of them have a sort of plan for their children.
They want them to be doctors, important sportsmen, or to run the family business. That’s the case of John Travolta and his daughter, Ella Bleu, who has been following her famous father’s footsteps.
Travolta, 64, married Kelly Preston in 1991 and welcomed Bleu in 2000. Ten years later, their youngest son, Benjamin, was born. One of the most shocking aspects of Bleu is that she is very similar to Travolta physically.
She has been linked to the entertainment industry since she was born and she has learned a lot from her father, who admitted that he wants to see her rise to stardom and become an A-list actress.
When she was only 9 years old, she landed her first role in Old Dogs. After that, she took a long break from acting to focus on her education. Earlier this year, she worked on her second project taking the role of Angel in Gotti.
Bleu will also be present on a second movie this year titled The Poison Rose. In it, she will play Rebecca Hunt. It is currently in the pre-production stage and it is set to be released later this year.
She and her family share a strong bond. In 2017, she and Travolta were spotted shopping at Barney’s in New York in what was described as a family quality time.
'Ella is fabulous, I want her [to pursue acting] because she is so good at it. She is such a good performer.'

Despite the fact Travolta might be living a happy life proud that Bleu is becoming an actress, he has experienced a couple of awful situations in the past. The worst one was when his eldest son, Jett, died at the age of 16.
He was Autistic and had a history of seizures. After that, he put his faith in the Church of Scientology and has been following that religion ever since.
