Beasts Of The Southern Wild actor Dwight Henry has revealed he'd love to work with his on-screen daughter Quvenzhane Wallis again.

The pair made their acting debut in the critically acclaimed indie film, and both went on to land roles in Steve McQueen's film Twelve Years A Slave.

"She has something inside her that is so very special," Dwight said, joking that one day he'll be old and in a wheelchair and will be watching Quvenzhane on TV.

"She has such a bright future ahead of her, and I look forward to seeing her in film again and maybe possibly working with her again."

Meanwhile, Quvenzhane - now 9 - said she wasn't thinking too much about the Oscar buzz surrounding the film.

"That's not in my head," she said.
