2008 was a tough year for Kieran Culkin. Recently, the actor confessed about missing his sibling Dakota passed away in 2008. Culkin said that the irreversible tragedy would never be fine with him. The ‘Succession’ star expressed his grief and sorrow while he was doing a shoot with The Hollywood Reporter.
Culkin Feels Devastated When He Thinks of His Sister
Culkin’s sister Dakota passed away in 2008 in an unfortunate car accident. Culkin says that he was devastated after the death of his sibling. Dakota was thirty years old when the unfortunate incident happened, and it affected Culkin severely. The actor said that there was no sugarcoating of the feelings he had. He loved his sister, and he could not believe that thirteen years have already passed since the incident.
The whole Culkin Family Misses Dakota
Culkin has a big family, and he is one of the seven siblings. The family includes actors Macaulay Culkin and Roy Culkin. Kieran is now a father of two, and he says that his children will never get to meet their aunt. This fact saddens him a lot. He said that he had made peace with the incident and knew that this would disturb him forever.
He remembers the antics of Dakota and sometimes weeps while thinking about her. Culkin said that she was the funniest member of the family and had a really twisted sense of humor. He went on to say that his sister was affectionately called Cody by the whole family. She was never interested in acting as she was shy. But she was the funniest of the lot, says the 39-year-old actor.
Kieran’s brother Macaulay recently welcomed his daughter with Brenda Song and named her after their late sister. The Culkin family misses their departed sister and the grief that they go through each day was pretty evident in Kieran Culkin’s interview.
