Superstars’ siblings somehow have the reputation of living in the shadow of their famous family members. However, a select few have gone ahead to carve out a name for themselves in their chosen sphere and interestingly, are doing very well if not on the same pedestal with their sibling. For instance, we have queen Bey’s sister, Solange Knowles who is also predominant in the celebrity circle though firstly, as Beyonce‘s younger sister before any other title which could include an experimental R&B singer. Here’s another celebrity in the list: Kaili Thorne. Though an actress and model in her own right, she is more prominent as the big sister of the former Disney star, Big Love and Famous in Love actress, Bella Thorne.
Kaili Thorne’s Biography
The older Thorne was born Kaili Elizabeth Thorne on the 19th day of February 1992, in Florida, USA. Her first name which is pronounced and can also be spelled Kylie has Hawaiian origin and means “whisper of the ocean”. As a child, Kaila lived with her mother in Hawaii and then moved in with her father, and half-siblings in Miami during her early teens.
Growing up, she was always keen on becoming an actress and would later study acting in New York. Since then, she has acted professionally and appeared in episodes of works such as CSI: Miami, The O.C., Demons, Lincoln Heights, Viola: The Traveling Rooms of a Little Giant, Blind Ambition, Night and Day, Chillerama, Ice Scream. Her favorite actors include Kevin Spacey and Edward Norton.
Unlike her younger sister, Bella, Kaili Thorne hasn’t quite received the same famous status yet. However, she is seemingly comfortable walking in her sister’s footsteps. But that wouldn’t last for very long as she is already creating her own empire in the modeling scene.
While she may be gaining grounds as an actress, she is probably more known for her work as a model. Her social media accounts are flooded with her in striking poses. Moreover, she became the new face of the water brand, 138 Water. The brand is co-founded by rapper Tyga and boasts of a bevvy of racy models posing for their ads.
Family – Parents, Siblings
Kaili Thorne is the first child of Delancey Reinaldo “Rey” Thorne with an unknown mother. As earlier mentioned, she was living with her birth mother in Hawaii until her early teens. She would, however, move in with her Cuban father and stepmother, Tamara Thorne (Beckett) who has Irish, Italian, English, German, and Welsh ancestry. She shared her father with three half-siblings: Danielle “Dani” Thorne (January 19, 1993), Bella Thorne (October 8, 1997) and brother Remington “Remy” Hunter Thorne (December 22, 1995).
The Thorne kids share a beautiful dream which is to build a successful empire in acting and modeling. The pack delved into the world of showbiz from when they were still tender and seem to be making true their dream. Dani and Bella are both actresses while Remy is an MMA fighter though he has appeared in several commercials and TV series.
Her father, Rey (February 28, 1963 – April 25, 2007) died in a motorcycle accident while Tamara (born August 1957) is an accomplished author who is well established and accomplished in the horror genre. She has always been there for her family and has earned deserved encomiums from her children including Kaili who praised her for her strength and effort in keeping them straight and guiding them on the right path even as a single mother. Also known by her pen name, Chris Curry, Tamara has authored a number of bestselling books including Winter Scream, Sorority, The Ghosts of Ravencrest, Bad Things, Moon Fall, and Thunder Road.
