Stellan Bettany, son of actors Jennifer Connelly and Paul Bettany, recently took to Instagram to perform his song “Hardly Awake.”

Bettany has chosen to not follow in the footsteps of his industry-leading parents and is instead pursuing classical composing and songwriting at the New England Conservatory of Music, expecting to graduate in 2025.

He frequently shares performances of his music on his social media platform, receiving praise from his father and friends, including Jeremy Pope, who plays Jean-Michel Basquiat alongside Paul Bettany’s Andy Warhol in The Collaboration, currently performing on Broadway.
