Kate Beckinsale

Kate Beckinsale says she was scared of dying from the same genetic disease that killed her father.The ‘Pearl Harbor’ actress’s father, actor Richard Beckinsale, died aged just 31 from a heart attack caused by an inherited gene. Kate, 33, has revealed she lived in fear while shooting her new movie ‘Click’ in case she suffered the same fate. She said: “I was very aware that I was the same age as when my father died when I started shooting this film. It was a strange feeling.“Making it past that age has made it easier to look forward to things and not have anything nagging you at the back of your mind.”Kate, who is married to film director Len Wiseman, says she can’t wait to extend her family.The brunette, who has a daughter Lily from a previous relationship, said: “I want another child soon. I need to work for a few more years, but I could always change my mind.”
