When a Prime Time Emmy winning actress and a screenwriter produce a child, the first guess for a lot of people is that such a child will also tow the path of the parents. This may not always be the case but with Odessa Adlon, it perfectly works out.
A daughter of Pamela Adlon and Felix O. Adlon, Odessa is an actress who has become popular for movies such as Nashville (2012) and What About Barb? (2017).
