Adding to the family’s artistic lineage, Davies’ father, Brian Davies, has had a notable career in film, appearing in works such as “American Gigolo,” “Convoy,” and “The Age of Innocence.” Alongside Amanda, he and Slezak are the parents of Michael Davies, aged 44, further extending the family’s connection to the entertainment industry.
