Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban’s daughters set to make big acting debut

Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban’s daughters set to make big acting debut

Nicole Kidman has dished on what could become a family tradition. On talk show Ellen, she let slip that her daughters, 10-year-old Sunday Rose and seven-year-old Faith Margaret, are about to make their huge acting debut.

But it’s not on the big budget comic book adaptation Aquaman in which the Hollywood star plays the titular superhero’s mother Queen Atlanna. It's on the hugely successful second season of Big Little Lies.

Season one was based on Liane Moriarty’s best-selling novel of the same name, with the author returning to pen the script for season two.

Visiting the set, the 51-year-old’s two daughters with her country music star husband Keith Urban, 50, ended up in front of the cameras for a cameo.

“They were in as extras in Big Little Lies, which I’ve never told anyone,” Kidman told host Ellen DeGeneres, reports People. “There I am being a big mouth.”

While DeGeneres pushed the high-profile star, who also co-produces the show alongside fellow Hollywood heavyweight and co-star Reese Witherspoon, to reveal some details about the show, Kidman stayed mum.

“Who do you worry about? Who has the big mouth?” she asked the Academy Award winner when it came to the leaking of plot secrets for Big Little Lies season 2.

When DeGeneres joked it was Witherspoon, her co-star laughed, saying, “No [it’s] probably the two of us that have a bit of a big mouth, so we have to watch it.”

But DeGeneres wouldn’t let up, jesting that Witherspoon had told her the plot-line for the entire coming season.

“I’ve told my husband the entire plot, but you’re allowed to do that,” said Kidman.

She did reveal, however, Meryl Streep’s reaction when she was asked to join the second season of Big Little Lies (the acclaimed actress plays Kidman’s mother-in-law).

"She was like, 'I want to be in the coven,” recalled the Aussie actress. “Which I thought was funny.”

Yet Kidman mused that the acclaimed TV series wasn’t what gave her credibility in the eyes of her daughters, but rather being in a big blockbuster like Aquaman.
