Neve Campbell's son is taking after his mom.

While speaking with PEOPLE about her new documentary Swan Song, which takes audiences inside the National Ballet of Canada’s 2022 production of Swan Lake and debuts at the Toronto International Film Festival, the Scream actress, 49, revealed that her son Raynor, 4, has taken an interest in dance.

"I have taken Raynor," Campbell, who trained at Canada's prestigious National Ballet School from age 9 to 14, says when asked if either of her sons have seen The Nutcracker. "I've taken Raynor, and Raynor loves dance, and has taken some ballet classes already. Absolutely loves it."

"Caspian, earlier on, had asked about ballet, as well, not even knowing that I had been a ballet dancer," she tells PEOPLE. "We did try, just for a minute, when we were in New York City, but it just took one bad teacher. It was like one teacher who was grumpy that day..."

"I used to think I would never allow my kids to dance. Inevitably, if someone has a passion for something and they are driven to do it, and they have to do it, you can't stop them," Campbell says.

Campbell shares her two sons – Raynor and Caspian, 11 — with husband JJ Feild.

In 2022, the star appeared on The Kelly Clarkson Show and explained why she told her son Raynor "from the beginning" that she and her husband welcomed him via adoption.

"I read a lot about it. I think back in the day we used to think 'Keep it from them and throw it at them when they're 21 so their entire reality falls apart,' which makes so much sense," she said. "Really the guidance that I had was even before they understand the language, talk about their birth mother, talk about their story. Tell them who they are."

Because of her decision to discuss Raynor's adoption with him, Campbell said "it's no surprise for Raynor in any sense whatsoever."

"He knows he was in Cynthia's tummy. She made him," continued Campbell. The actress went on to share that before Raynor was born, she asked his birth mother for photos or a letter about herself.

"She actually made an entire album for him of photos of herself and things about her life and things that she likes," Campbell said.
