Model and aspiring musician Gabriel Kane Day Lewis has admitted that having a famous father can be a curse as he tries to make a name for himself in showbusiness.

The Chanel model (20), whose parents are acting legend Daniel Day Lewis and French actress Isabelle Adjani, said his famous surname comes with "some baggage".

"I'm very proud of my parents, but they really set a bar and cast an immense shadow. It's made it hard for me to find myself," he told the Evening Standard.

Gabriel, who has lived in Co Wicklow since he was 14, said his father has been "amazing" at sheltering his family from fame's downside.

"There's nothing more important to him than his privacy and that of his family."
