Playing Dylan Penn Shares the One Piece of Acting Advice She Got From Her Parents

Robin Wright and Sean Penn’s daughter is following in the footsteps of her famous family!

Dylan Penn will make her on-screen acting debut in the horror flick, Condemned – out Nov. 13.

Dylan plays Maya, a girl who runs away from her bickering parents to live with her boyfriend in an old condemned building in New York City. After a virus affects the building’s residents, the tenants begin to turn into rampageous murderers, leaving the remaining survivors in a quarantined building to fight for their lives.

“I don't think it's like a typical horror film,” Dylan tells ET. “It's not just about the gore and the dark side of things. There's a lot of light, funny parts…We have a really eclectic cast and I just think it's a really entertaining film.”

While neither of 24-year-old Dylan’s parents have entered the horror genre, she says they did give her some pretty great advice going into the role. “I think the one piece of general advice that they gave was just to never do something that felt off,” said Dylan. “Never do something that felt false for me or else that's going to show up on screen. Which really helped me in the end.”

As for continuing her acting career, Dylan has a few things in the works – but would definitely love a shot at co-starring with her mother.

“I would die for a role on House of Cards,” she said. “I would love to work opposite my mom someday, and if it was on House of Cards, it would be a dream come true.”
