Sadly, she won’t be entertaining us anymore as she passed away from ruptured intestine at the age of 69.

Patty Duke's sons

The Oscar-winning actress was married four times with three sons, Sean Astin, Mackenzie Astin, and Kevin Pearce. Two of Patty’s sons followed in her footsteps and became famous actors themselves.

Duke’s oldest son, Sean is famous for his role as Samwise Gamgee in The Lord of the Rings franchise. He went on to star in several films and TV shows including Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, 50 First Dates, and Stranger Things.

Her second child, Mackenzie is known for his roles in Lost, Psych, Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal, NCIS, and Iron Will.

Sean Astin’s daughters

Since 1992, Sean has been married to his wife, Christine. Together they have three beautiful daughters: Alexandra “Ali” Astin, Elizabeth Astin, and Isabella Astin.

Astin’s daughters bear a remarkable resemblance to their legendary grandmother. It’s safe to say they are carbon copies of Patty.

All three girls even made an appearance in The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King alongside their father. However, the actor’s first daughter continued her acting career.

She also featured as a princess in Ribbit and Bad Kids of Crestview Academy. Unlike her sister, Elizabeth keeps a low profile and stays away from the spotlight. She is a student at Oaks Christian High School in Los Angeles.

Not much is known about Sean’s youngest daughter, but she continues to enjoy love from her older siblings and parents.

Meanwhile, Sean debated his paternity until he was 26 years old. Back in 1994, the actor found out that his real father was Michael Tell who his mother was married for only 3 days.

For years Patty thought Desi Arnaz, Jr was Sean’s father. The actor was adopted by John Astin after he and Duke were married in 1972.

Sean Astin’s daughters are a spitting image of her grandmother, and they look so alike.
