What child actors who started acting in films when they were very young look like today (14 photos)

13 June 2024

Before we even noticed, some young actors not only turned from children to teenagers and then into adults, but also mysteriously disappeared from the stage, ending their film careers. For many of them, the very film in which we saw them turned out to be the only one, because, as adults, they preferred a different path, far from the world of show business. Here are some of the kids we remember from films from decades past.

Known for the film Last Action Hero (1993).
