Sosie Bacon’s parents, Kyra Sedgwick and Kevin Bacon, were against their daughter becoming an actress, but from a young age, Bacon was determined to act. She got her first role from her dad, who cast her in Loverboy, which he also directed. The role caught the attention of James Duff, the producer of The Closer, which Sedgwick starred in. Duff suggested Bacon be cast in a recurring guest role for the series, which both parents were leery of, but Bacon insisted upon. She got the role and kept going with it. More recently, Bacon appeared in 13 Reasons Why and has been on HBO’s Here And Now since 2018.
