As a family of actors, they have taken part in more than their fair share of moving scenes.
But last week the phrase took on a second meaning for Belgravia star Alice Eve – as she roped in her thespian parents Trevor Eve and Sharon Maughan to help her move house.
Alice, 38, called out instructions from the window of the £700,000 West London property where she had been spending lockdown as her parents packed the car in the street below.

Arriving in a face mask which he subsequently wore around his neck, Mr Eve, 68, who played TV detective Eddie Shoestring, carefully put his daughter's belongings into the back of a 4x4 Audi, before driving to her new bachelorette pad a few streets away.
He and Ms Maughan, 69, best known for her appearances in a series of Gold Blend coffee adverts, were joined by their sons George, an actor and musician, and producer Jack.
Alice, dressed in a white summer skirt, Converse trainers and floppy hat, carried a black plastic sack and metallic pedal bin to the car before walking to her new address with the family dog.

It is understood the Oxford-educated actress, who splits her time between London and Los Angeles and is a naturalised American citizen, has spent lockdown with George.
After three years of marriage, in 2017 Alice split from her teenage sweetheart, financier Alex Cowper-Smith, whom she met at exclusive Westminster School. She is now thought to be single.
Alice, whose Hollywood credits include Men In Black 3, played Susan Trenchard in Belgravia and recently said 'I don't have any aversion to flesh or showing it' in her roles.
