THE daughter of The Wire star Dominic West will have her own taste of stardom on Sunday. Martha West, 10, will join co-stars Paul Bettany and his wife Jennifer Connelly at the British premiere of Creation, a film about Charles Darwin. Making her film debut, Martha plays Darwins daughter Annie, whose death pushed him towards writing about natu- ral selection in The Origin Of Species. She won the role after attending open auditions at the suggestion of her fathers agent -- despite the British actors initial misgivings. We s t , w h o p l a y s D e t e c t iv e J i m my McNulty in the cult American crime series, said: Its not something Id instantly want my chil- dren to do, but shes always wanted to act. I took her to the audition so she could see what a nightmare it is and she blew the doors off. The films director, Jon Amiel, said: I only found out after I cast her that she was Dominic Wests daughter. It tends to indicate that talent for acting c o u l d p o s s i b l y b e genetic -- something Im sure Mr Darwin would have something to say about. Martha is Wests child with his former part- ner, Polly Astor. They split when she was a toddler but will both accompany her to the West End premiere at the Curzon Mayfair.
