It seems talent runs in the family, as Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis’s daughter Lily-Rose is preparing to take the acting world by storm.
The 15-year-old has landed her first major role in Kevin Smith’s Yoga Hosers, and was spotted on the Los Angeles set for the first time on Wednesday.
Lily-Rose was dressed casually in a baggy blue T-shirt, black jeans with rips at the knees and matching ankle boots.

She was spotted chatting to some crew members while strolling around and sipping on a soda.
Also seen on the set was Lily-Rose’s co-star Tyler Posey, who wore a paint-splattered tank top, black tracksuit bottoms and bright blue high-top trainers.
Over the weekend, the teenager shared a photo from the set alongside Kevin Smith and his daughter Harley Quinn, who has nabbed the other leading role in the film.

Clearly feeling comfortable on the set, Lily-Rose also shared the caption: ‘#YogaHosers is coming together so quickly and amazingly.’
The Hollywood Reporter first revealed that Yoga Hosers will see the new actress star opposite her famous father, and is a spin-off of the movie Tusk, the second in the True North Trilogy.
Lily-Rose and Harley Quinn had small roles in the original, but this story will focus on them.
They play convenience store clerks and yoga fans who enlist man-hunter Guy Lapointe (played by Johnny Depp) to help them battle an ancient evil when it may affect their invitation to a 12th grade party.

It's going to be a family affair on set!
Johnny Depp will star in the comedy-action film Yoga Hosers alongside daughter Lily-Rose Melody Depp, according to reports.
The film, a second in the True North Trilogy from Kevin Smith, will also star Smith's daughter, Harley Quinn Smith, Variety reports. Shooting on the film, a follow-up to Smith's Tusk, begins this week.
Lily-Rose, Depp's daughter with former partner Vanessa Paradis, comes well-prepared for her first feature role as a member of an acting family.
She and Harley Quinn, both 15, play bored, yoga-loving convenience store clerks who do battle with Depp's character, manhunter Guy Lapointe.
Justin Long, Adam Brody, Tyler Posey and Natasha Lyonne will also star.
Smith said the film honors his love of comic books and the power of teenage daughters.
"People always ask me, 'Are you ever going to make a comic book movie?' " Smith told The Hollywood Reporter. "This is it – but instead of yet another dude saving the day, our antiheroes are the most feared and formidable creatures man has ever encountered: two 15-year-old girls."

Smith is writing and directing, Johnny Depp is featured, but who are the yoga enthusiasts? I’m pretty sure it was “Bring your daughter to work day” because Smith and JDepp have done just that. Their progeny, Harley Quinn Smith and Lily-Rose Depp will star in the comedic caper.
This film is part of Smith’s True North trilogy of movies that are immersed in Canadian myths and culture. ‘Tusk‘ was the first of the triad and is set to premiere at the Toronto Film Festival next month. Both Smith and Depp juniors appear in the transformative film. In a way that’s typical for many filmmakers, Smith is scattering characters from previous films throughout the triumvirate. Other familiar faces from ‘Tusk‘ are Michael Parks, Justin Long, Haley Joel Osment, Genesis Rodriguez, Ralph Garman and Harley Morenstein. The familiar face of Jason Mewes joins the players from ‘Tusk‘ along with other newcomers to the trilogy Natasha Lyonne, Tony Hale, Austin Butler, Adam Brody and Tyler Posey….and yes, the characters from ‘Clerks‘ appear for a short period in ‘Tusk‘, of course, I’m hoping they will make an appearance in this one, too.

Filmmaker Kevin Smith doesn't look so heavy for a guy with a podcast called Fatman on Batman and a comedy special titled Too Fat For 40.
The director has struggled with his weight throughout his career, often gaining and losing dramatic amounts between films, and given both his self-depreciating style of humor and that one time he was kicked off an airplane, it's become one of his signature characteristics.
Having posted the photo above earlier today, though, a number of fans noted that he'd dropped a significant amount of weight recently (something we noticed when we interviewed Smith at Comic Con -- you can see video here). After a few inquiries, Smith chimed in with the following explanation:
True story: on Tusk, I learned how to lose weight WHILE making a movie. The secret is to not eat sugar and stand all day. I never sit behind the monitor: I'm always moving now. I've been wearing a Jawbone bracelet and using the UP app to count my daily steps and every day this week, I've averaged 12,000. That's close to walking 5 miles a day. I NEVER walk 5 miles a day EVER. So while I stand there every day making this weird little movie with my kid and her friend in it, I've been quietly cutting pounds in the process. This is why I've been stringing so many movies together lately: filmmaking, for me, has proven to be an excellent exercise regiment.
As far as celebrity weight loss tips, that's...remarkably simple.
Smith is currently filming Yoga Hosers with his daughter Harley Quinn Smith and her friend Lily-Rose Depp, the daughter of actor and onscreen Yoga Hosers antagonist Johnny Depp.
