Actress Thandie Newton is relocating her family from her native U.K. to Los Angeles.

The star has resisted moving across the Atlantic since landing her big break in Mission Impossible Ii in 2000, but her living arrangements have changed following the birth of her son Booker in March (14), and now she needs to have her entire family, including husband Ol Parker and daughters Ripley and Nico, with her in Los Angeles as she films U.S. Tv series Rogue.

However, Newton insists the move is not permanent.

She tells Britain's Mail on Sunday, "We're packed and ready to leave - the whole family... my son Booker is only four months old. I'm still breastfeeding so can't be away from him... We won't stay in L.A. for ever. I'll be back in time so that Booker doesn't grow up with an American accent."
