Chimera actor Billy Zane was spotted strolling with his adorable daughter Eva Katerina as they shopped at The Grove on Easter Sunday (April 8) in Los Angeles, Calif.
The 46-year-old Titanic actor was dressed up for his daddy-daughter date in a suit and a fedora. Sweet Eva donned a festively-colored dress, some white tights and a pair of bright yellow shoes.
It seems Billy has expressed feelings of being ”typecast” after he played Cal Hockley in the 1997 epic drama Titanic.
Although the actor admits that landing such a coveted role in the movie was truly ”a gift,” he feels he became ”synonymous with playing bad guys” among casting directors as a direct result.
”It’s a gift for any actor to be part of such a wonderful movie – it was a blessing,” he reveals to Bang Showbiz. “But in terms of a curse, Hollywood in particular is notorious for taking less risks for more money. So when it comes to casting in particular, there’s quite a bit of type casting.”
”And they always try to make ‘last year’s movie’ which is a big mistake, instead of ‘next year’s movie,'” he adds. “I was synonymous with playing bad guys. So it forces you to become a little more inventive and embrace your independence and direct your own movies, and make your own life.”
So what does the Titanic alum think about the April 6th re-release of the film in 3D?
“I found myself experiencing it more objectively, like an audience member,” he answers. “It completely transformed me into a ticket holder.”
”But what I found this time around, which is really interesting, was I was really engaged by Cal- I could see myself outside of myself and I suddenly found myself caring a lot,” he continues. “I was more understanding, and had more sympathy dare I say, for his journey than I did before.”
