Faye Dunaway is “mommie dearest” to one son, Liam Dunaway O’Neill.

The Bonnie and Clyde actress adopted Liam with her second husband, photographer Terry O’Neill, in 1980. After she and Terry split in 1987, they maintained a co-parenting relationship as they raised their then-7-year-old son.

Though Liam is now grown up and has a family of his own, he still maintains a close relationship with his mom, even accompanying her to the 2024 Cannes Film Festival in May 2024.

From welcoming his son to his affinity for poker, here’s everything to know about Faye Dunaway’s son, Liam Dunaway O’Neill.

He was born in 1980

“Let the adventure begin !!!” he wrote in the caption of his Instagram announcement. “Two things I never thought possible, finding my person and making one. Extremely blessed and happy that our family is getting bigger.”

Roth is a TV host, radio personality and spokesperson, and was already a mother to one daughter before her relationship with Liam. Together, they have expanded their family and enjoy spending quality time with Faye, especially for special occasions like Mother’s Day.

Liam got candid on Instagram in August 2021, sharing how "about 1 year ago," he was depressed and in a "bad place" in his life. He explained that he gained weight and didn't feel like himself anymore, until he began his health journey.

"Not knowing where to turn I slid deeper into a bad place both mentally and physically," he wrote on Instagram. "After a while I was sent a picture of myself and knew I had to do something. I decided to dedicate the next year to my mental and physical health."

Liam added that he lost nearly 30 pounds thanks to "hard work, diet and exercise."

He participated in a documentary about Faye

In April 2024, Liam announced that he took part in a documentary about his mom, FAYE, that was two years in the making. The film, directed by Laurent Bouzereau, premiered at the Cannes Film Festival and was the first documentary centered around the legendary Hollywood star.

The movie showcased the icon reflecting on pivotal moments in her career with the help of her family and friends.

“Through those reflections, she courageously explores personal discoveries — her struggles with mental health issues and bipolar disorder, her family history, and how the intensity of the characters she played still impacts who she is today,” per a synopsis.

Liam took part in the film as the mother-son duo listed through photo albums together, reminiscing on different parts of Faye’s life.
