Remember Carolyn from 'Crooklyn'? Her daughter looks like her in photo with father

She has been in the entertainment industry for over four decades already, almost the same time she has been married to her white husband. Their beautiful daughter is already a grown-up, and she is an accomplished equestrian.

Alfre Woodard has been gracing our screens with her beauty, talent and stage presence for years. Famous for her roles on films like “Crooklyn,” “Funny Valentines,” “Love & Basketball,” and “12 Years A Slave,” she’s now recognized by a younger generation for her roles in “Luke Cage,” “A Series of Unfortunate Events,” and “Empire.”

The 65-years-old star has been married to Roderick Spencer for 35 years. He’s a producer and professor at Emerson College in Los Angeles, where he teaches all about directing and screenwriting. The couple has two adopted children: daughter Mavis and son Duncan.

Even though they are not blood-related, the 27-years-old woman resembles Woodward in a photo the actress shared on Instagram on Father’s Day to congratulate her husband.

In the pic, Mavin is posing next to Spencer as they look directly to the camera with a severe but fierce expression.

Many people thought Mavin would take after her mom and follow the same career path as an actress after she was named Miss Golden Globe in 2010. However, the beauty always knew that her passion relayed in another industry.

She’s now a successful equestrian, and last year she was named as an ambassador of the the U.S Equestrian Federation.

Speaking to Sidelines News, Mavin revealed that her upbringing had a lot of influence in the way she manages her career now. She said:

“Growing up, my parents always made sure my younger brother, Duncan, and I were well grounded and appreciative of what we had. I always took care of my own horses. They weren’t spending hundreds of thousands on them.”

And continued:

“When my junior years ended and I told my parents that I wanted to make horses my career, they said, ‘Okay, but you have to go out there and make it on your own.’ That’s the sort of mentality they both have — if you want something, you’ll appreciate it more if you work for it. My dad always told me the harder you work, the luckier you get — that’s my motto.”

Mavin came a long way in her career already. From working as a groom while balancing her literature studies to being a Grand Prix jumper rider, the young woman is indeed as passionate as her mother when it comes to her career.

Like their daughter mentioned, Alfre and Spencer taught their kids about being grounded and working hard. Something that they had to put in practice in their relationship, not only to deal with the pressure of outsiders for being an interracial couple but also to deal with the regular ups and downs that affect a relationship.

Speaking about love and marriage to Uptown magazine a few years ago, Woodward shared a candid piece, saying:

“Love… will demand things that are impossible. Marriage is about putting both feet in the boat and rowing out in the middle of the lake…. [It] is a partnership that you continue to grow.”

It seems like Woodard and her family are in an amazing place at the moment, and her marriage keeps on going strong with each year that passes.
