Julia Louis-Dreyfus' son Charlie, 21, joins her on 'Late Night with Seth Meyers': Watch

Julia Louis-Dreyfus has no qualms about sharing the spotlight — especially with her own kid.

The actress' 21-year-old son, Charlie, joined her onstage during an appearance this week on "Late Night with Seth Meyers," where she excitedly recalled watching him film a guest spot on "Veep." While the Northwestern University senior didn't say whether he plans to pursue acting after college, he was, according to his mom, a natural on set.

"There was this role of an inappropriately young boyfriend to a record executive who’s in his 50s, and [showrunner Dave Mandel] said, 'Hey, maybe Charlie can play that part.' And I said, 'Sure, I’ll ask him,'" Louis-Dreyfus told Meyers. "And I was terrified ‘cause I thought he might screw it up. Sorry, honey."

Thankfully, Charlie did not screw up: "He was absolutely fantastic," she said. Watch in the video above.

Charlie, who plays basketball for Northwestern, is the younger of Louis-Dreyfus' two sons. She and husband Brad Hall also share son Henry, 26.

Louis-Dreyfus and Meyers also chatted about the approaching series finale of "Veep." The show went on a brief hiatus between seasons after Louis-Dreyfus was diagnosed with breast cancer in the fall of 2017.

A year and a half later, the actress appeared to be in great spirits, although finishing the show is bittersweet.

"I'm somewhat grief-stricken to say goodbye to it, because it was a total endeavor of passion and love," she said. "I love this gig more than I can possibly articulate."

"Veep" airs on Sundays on HBO at 9:30 p.m. "Late Night with Seth Meyers" airs at 11:30 p.m. each weeknight on NBC.
