What Dominique thinks of her father’s career; Is she interested in acting?
When Malibu90265 Magazine asked Cary in March 2020 what his daughter Dominique thinks of his career and if she would follow in his footsteps, the Westminster resident said:
I’m not sure what she’s thinking. I might have gotten a little cooler when I was cast on Stranger Things.
Cary added that his daughter Dominique, in fact, only developed an interest in the showbiz industry after seeing her father on the Netflix Supernatural thriller series Stranger Things. The now 59-year-old actor nevertheless said he would support Dominique in following her dreams, whatever they are.
Dominique Elwes is pretty serious about climate change
Apparently, Cary’s daughter, Dominique in addition to her father, is also very aware of climate change and global warming. Speaking to a magazine in March 2020, Cary revealed that his daughter and her friends had developed knowledge at school about what climate change is doing to the environment.
He also said that Dominique and her friends were more aware than the adults who actually had more responsibility for the matter. Cary was quite vocal about the horrific fires in Australia and Southern California at the time on his social media. The subject is something that the British actor is deeply concerned with.
Is Elwes on Instagram?
Dominique does have an Instagram account. However, the youngster only has a handful of posts. In fact, Cary’s daughter only launched her handle on the image-sharing platform on June 13, 2021. Her very first Instagram image features a series of images of Dominique wearing black tank tops and ripped jeans. The stills are apparently from her native Malibu, California. Besides the caption, the teen wrote nothing but “Summer.”
Since then, Dominique has been fairly active on her Ig; she usually shares her poses taken against the backdrop of the Californian and Hawaiian summer. Striking is the fact that Dominique already has a few thousand followers with only half a dozen posts. The content is relatively thicker on her TikTok where the blond young lady seems more into the game. The musical app features Dominique routinely performing acts with her friends and even her mother, Lisa Marie Kurbikoff.
Dominique is believed to live in Malibu, California as her actor father once said the place holds a special place in his heart as it was the place where he first met his wife Lisa.
Does Dominique have a boyfriend?
Cary and his wife Kurbikoff have not disclosed as many details about their only child, Dominique. That is why there are too few statements about what 15-year-old Lewis is doing now. Considering that her relationship issue is nothing but a painstaking head-scratcher. Although it’s only been a few years since the teen launched her Instagram, it may take a while for her to let her followers know who her boyfriend is or if she has one.
