Zoë Kravitz: ‘You’re just supposed to assume a character in a script is Caucasian’

Zoë Kravitz knows a bit about blended families, even if hers has more Hollywood celebrity than most. The only daughter of musician Lenny Kravitz and actor Lisa Bonet – who eloped to Las Vegas on Bonet’s 20th birthday, had Zoë a year later, and divorced when she was five – her stepfather is Jason Momoa, man-mountain Drogo from Game Of Thrones. It was a fairly harmonious household, according to 28-year-old Kravitz: “Once my parents worked through their stuff, and by the time my mother got remarried, it was pretty easy; everyone loved each other.” And, as was recently revealed, she almost got Nicole Kidman for a stepmother, too; the Oscar-winning Australian was engaged to Kravitz Sr before she married country musician Keith Urban in 2007.

But while the two actors never ended up sharing a roof, this spring they are sharing a screen in the HBO miniseries Big Little Lies. Kravitz plays Bonnie, the second wife of Nathan (James Tupper), previously married to Madeline, played by Reese Witherspoon, in a rather more fractious family set-up than the one she herself grew up in. The show feels radical for a number of reasons, not least for having five female leads: Laura Dern and Shailene Woodley also star (and Kidman and Witherspoon produce). It has been praised for giving the women complex stories, exploring domestic violence alongside the middle-class complaints of helicopter parenting and competitive mothering.
