It looks like Anna Nicole Smith's teenage daughter, Dannielynn Birkhead, may follow in her mother's footsteps and end up becoming an actor herself. 

While doing an interview with DailyMail TV host Jesse Palmer, the 13-year-old who was present along with her father Larry Birkhead got candid about how much she loves acting.

In a quick peek of their interview, Dannielynn shares, "It's really cool to like, act as a character and not yourself. It's like portraying a new person. It's fun." Palmer spoke to ET and described Dannielynn as a very sweet teenager who is a spitting image of her mother. The host added, "It'll be interesting to see what happens for her."

During the rest of the interview, Palmer revealed that the dad and daughter duo talked a lot about Dannielynn's life, hobbies, and growing up as the daughter of a celebrity. 

"Her dad is raising her in Kentucky, trying to give her this normal life away from the spotlight. So it’s a great catch up," Palmer added. It has been around 12 years since the death of the teenager's mother, Anna Nicole, who passed away due to an accidental drug overdose in February 2007. 

The host also shared that Larry is doing his best to help preserve Anna's memory in their household. Palmer explained that Larry talks about Anna a lot to Dannielynn and is attempting to help her understand who her mother was.

"There are some tokens throughout the house in her memory and in her honor. He talks with his daughter a lot about who her mom was [and] what she did," Palmer shared, adding that Larry still has to navigate the challenges of what Dannielynn could read and see on social media about her mother's past.

Larry had met Anna in 2005 and had eventually got full custody of Dannielynn after Anna died. 

Ever since Anna's death, the Birkhead family has opted to maintain a low profile away from the spotlight but have attended a few small events over the years. In May, Dannielynn paid tribute to her late mother when she wore the same hat that Anna had worn to a 2004 event.
