Seven Celebs Sired By a Solicitor (Or Other Type Of Lawyer)

By on

To celebrate the visit to London last week of Kim Kardashian – the daughter of OJ Simpson’s defence lawyer Robert Kardashian – we bring you six other celebs also sired by a member of the legal profession…

Emma Watson – aka actress Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter films – is the daughter of CMS Cameron McKenna partner and head of telecoms Chris Watson.

The father of ‘Devil Wears Prada’ star Emily Blunt is big-earning Furnival Chambers silk Oliver Blunt QC.

Vampire Weekend’s bassist Chris Baio’s old man is Joseph Baio, a litigation partner at top New York outfit Willkie Farr & Gallagher.

High Court judge Andrew Popplewell QC is the father of up-and-coming actress Anna Popplewell, who appeared in the Chronicles of Narnia film series.

The dad of former Dawson Creek star (and ex-Mrs Tom Cruise) Katie Holmes is family law specialist Martin Holmes.

And last but not least is reality TV star Hugo Taylor, son of SJ Berwin solicitor-advocate Tim Taylor QC.



Troy Codnee’s head will explode at reading this.



Jeremy Edwards, formerly of Hollyoaks is the son of John Edwards ex-Managing Partner of Sidley & Austin.

Emma Watson was the spitting image of Chris Watson in his younger, slimmer days.

Isn’t it one of the rules of these sorts of articles to have Emily Mortimer in?

Richard Oakes, the guitarist with Suede, and then Artmagic (and Suede again following their recent re-formation) is the son of solicitor Roger Oakes, partner with Poole firm Dickinson Manser.
