Bindi Irwin at 14 is trending on March 12 as the Crocodile Hunter's teen daughter promotes her new role starring in "Return to Nim's Island" while in her native Australia. Playing a castaway, the 14-year-old entertainer and wildlife conservationist reprises a role originally created by child actor Abigail Breslin in 2008 in the original "Nim's Island" movie, according to Wonderwall on MSN.
That said, Steve's kid and a child celebrity known the world over has been dipping her toe in all kinds of show business efforts for years now while still keeping alive the legacy left by her famous dad, Steve Irwin.
The late Australian luminary, whose life's work was to make others aware of their role in conserving wildlife while making certain these critters proliferate in the modern world, was adamant about his cause. With that in mind, his entire family has remained very much part of this wide-reaching effort.
By way of background, the patriarch of Bindi Irwin's family sadly passed away six years ago at the age of 44 after being accidentally being attacked by a stingray on Batt Reef. To honor this brave and forward thinking man and his work as a naturalist, Bindi Irwin at age 14 likes to speak to other teenagers about her father's work.
This precocious personality also likes to take part in certain acting gigs, especially as these parts pertain to her day-to-day efforts emulating Steven Irwin's original outreach. In this current project that was shot in Queensland, Bindi plays a kid who finds herself on a tropical island while in her element among the wildlife in this extremely magical environment.
In fact, this member of the Irwin tribe told an Australian publication that she thinks she's a lot like her new character. She says that Nim is "a bit uppity" but that this particular personality trait is one of the only differences between her latest alter ego and herself.
And so, as Bindi Irwin grapples a new project in as voracious a way as her father grappled crocodiles, she's a talent to be reckoned with while this teen becomes a young woman before the world's eyes in her role as a much praised personality in her own right.
