Nepotism in middle earth

Article via TORN about Bard the Bowman includes this factoid about two of Bard's "children":

although his "son" is John Bell, a professional actor,

the two girls, Mary and Peggy are the daughters of actor James Nesbitt (Bofur), who not only brought his daughters to work in New Zealand, they found jobs too. 
Jackson did a similar thing in the previous triology when he placed his kids (photo) in minor rolls and in the ending scene of ROTK had "Sam" greeted by his own daughter (with "Rosie" carrying her daughter dressed to be his second child, a boy)
