Actor Michael Chiklis refuses to let his 10-year-old daughter watch gritty cop drama THE SHIELD - even though she's a regular on the show.

His daughter AUTUMN plays Chiklis' onscreen daughter CASSIDY MACKEY on the American drama but she has never seen a full episode - because her father thinks the plotlines are too violent.

Chiklis says, "It's totally inappropriate for her. She can watch her dailies - what she's in. That's it."
