Sydney Tamiia Poitier is the daughter of actor Sydney Poitier and she has been acting since the 1990s. Poitier’s father has been acting for many years. Even though she has been acting in the business for around twenty years, she rarely uses her father’s past success as a means to establish her own name.
Many actors who are the sons and daughters of famous Hollywood personalities try their best to establish their own careers without leaning on the name of their parents. This is extremely important for entertainers who want to distinguish themselves from their parents.
Poitier (father) has performed for decades and during the 1960s he had earned a Grammy award. He is also considered one of the top twenty-five greatest male actors of all time. Currently, Poitier is a political figure in the nation of Bahama and is an ambassador to the nation of Japan. Poitier casts a huge shadow in terms of success and it would be hard for his daughter (Sydney) to fill his shoes.
Regardless of how successful her father is, Sydney is doing her best to establish her own career. Again, she has been acting for about fifteen years but she hasn’t had a break through role to date. Sydney Poitier is talented enough to be remembered as a good actress but finding the right part that truly brings out her talent could be the thing that she needs to catapult her career.
