Lea Thompson is one of the most talented actresses in Hollywood. Most people know her as the actress who played Lorraine Baines in the famous trilogy Back to the Future.

However, there is much more to this incredible woman: She is a talented producer, a great film director, an incredible dancer, and even a nice singer. But, most importantly, Lea is a supportive and inspiring mother for her two not less creative and talented daughters, Madelyn and Zoey.

Balancing between her family and career

For the majority of her time in the industry, Lea had to balance between work and family. The actress married a film director Howard Deutch in 1989. Just two years later, the couple welcomed their first daughter, Madelyn, and then, in 1994, their second girl, Zoey.

And most of the time, being a mom and trying to build her career in Hollywood was not that easy. In an interview with Huffington Post, the actress admitted that her husband “wasn’t comfortable” with them becoming parents so soon. But, as the girls grew older, things started to change for the better.

As they’ve gotten older and more independent, it’s definitely gotten easier on our marriage. It’s like we’re suddenly really enjoying just being together.

Furthermore, the sisters decided to follow in their mother's footsteps. And, as Lea said in an interview with ABC News, it was quite a difficult task.

I've accomplished a lot and to follow in your parents' footsteps, it's a little daunting.

But from the first projects they took part in, it became obvious that their stunning beauty was not the only thing Madelyn and Zoey inherited from Lea.

Both Deutch girls are quite talented. The elder, Madelyn, is an actress, model, musician, and screenwriter. She started her career by joining the cast of the mini-series Texas Rising. Later, Madelyn appeared in several projects, including TV series Outcast and Jim Wilson's drama 50 to 1.

Her little sister, Zoey, also is an actress. She made her debut at the age of 15 by playing Maya in Disney's series The Suite Life on Deck. Over the years, she starred in dozens of projects, including Vampire Academy (2014), Why Him? (2016), and Before I Fall (2017).

Last year, Zoey even won the Rising Star Award at SCAD Savannah Film Festival, making her entire family very proud of her.

The same year, Lea and her girls presented what you may call a family project – a comedy-drama The Year of Spectacular Men. For Thompson, it was her debut as a feature film director. Madelyn wrote both the script and music, and also co-starred alongside her sister, Zoey.

Lea says that working with her girls helped them get even closer. And who knows, maybe this ambitious project was just a beginning of a new year in this wonderful family's life.
