Sydney is not the first star in her family to make waves in the Hollywood industry. She is the daughter of Kyle Chandler, an actor you may recognize from movies and TV shows including Bloodline, Friday Night Lights and Early Edition. Kyle has starred in projects working alongside Leonardo DiCaprio, Rachel McAdams and Michelle Williams.
He has certainly had an impressive career thus far, with two major awards under his belt. He took home the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series in 2011. A few years later, in 2013, he won the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Motion Picture.

Sydney’s mother is named Kathryn Chandler. She’s been married to Kyle since 1995, after they met at a dog park in the early ’90s. IMDb reveals that Kathryn has a small resume as a writer and actress. Buzz South Africa explains that she was the one who bravely took the first step between her and Kyle. Although she had started their first exchange of words, he was comfortable enough to ask her out on a date at the movies about six months later.
Sydney opened up to WWD about following in her father’s footsteps by becoming an actress. She said: “My dad is an actor, so you never want to do what your parents are doing. So I got a long way from that… [until] I ended up taking an acting class in Austin here in town when I was studying to write.”
She went on to explain how studying the art of acting piqued her interest and caused a change of heart.

In a photo posted in July 2022, Sydney shared a beach pose with Sawyer. She added a caption that read, “This girl is my idol. My stone. My blood. My sister. She is the most amazing human being, and most of the time she takes on the role of the big sister. She’s just, yes, yes. One of the best humans and hearts I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting. I love you so much.”
Sawyer is Sydney’s only sister, and they have no siblings.
