Who Is Aled Jones Daughter: Aled Jones, one of the most well-known former child stars in the United Kingdom, understands what it’s like to deal with the demands of growing up in the limelight. As a result, it comes as no surprise that the Welsh musician, who rose to prominence with the song Walking In The Air from the film The Snowman, has been giving advice to his adolescent daughter Emilia about her future in the film industry.
“The one thing my father has stated from the beginning is that I will never be forced to do anything I don’t want to do,” said Jones, who will appear in the upcoming film Brimstone at the age of 15. In her own words, “I’ve been very fortunate to work with some incredible performers, and you can’t help but learn from them.” It’s like I’m learning on the job right now.”
Joey Jones portrays Joanna, a poor teenager who becomes embroiled in a horrifying new Western thriller directed by Martin Koolhoven and starring Dakota Fanning, Guy Pearce, and Kit Harington. “I began reading the script and couldn’t put it down once I got started.” It piqued my interest and struck a strong chord with me. My research into the late eighteenth century was extensive, and the magnificent costumes and settings really aided my ability to get into character.”
In exchange for a role, Emilia Jones is willing to get her hands dirty — even if it means being coated in fish guts. CODA is a film in which the 19-year-old English actress portrays the daughter of a deaf fishing boat captain. And so it was with much excitement when she walked onto a Massachusetts pier at 4 a.m. to begin her apprenticeship in the trawling industry.
Onset, Jones and her co-stars Troy Kotsur (who plays her father) and Daniel Durant worked together for 12 hours on a boat, dragging in nets and wading into smelly guts (who portrays her brother). And she seemed to be enjoying herself – for the most part. The fisherwoman confides, laughing, that she “would throw a fish back in the water every time one of the more rough fisherman would turn around.”
Jones is the only hearing member of the Rossis family, a working-class family from Gloucester, Massachusetts, in CODA, which gets its name from an acronym that stands for Children of Deaf Adults. CODA is a Netflix original series. Despite the fact that her character serves as the family translator, she is contemplating attending college.
Fishing was not the only new talent she learned for the shoot, as she also learned how to cook. As part of her studies in American Sign Language, Jones worked with a tutor while filming episodes of Netflix’s Locke & Key in Toronto, where she was also frantically practicing her finger-spelling skills between takes. In the words of co-star Marlee Matlin, “She’s definitely the most well-trained actress that I’ve worked with when it comes to [sign language].”
In the same way, I believe that his parents were the same way with him, which accounts for his lack of delinquency. He once performed at the Hollywood Bowl and was subsequently invited to appear on a popular Saturday night television program in America, but he declined, stating that he just wanted to return home to meet his fiancée and play football with his friends. As a result, that is exactly what they did.”
