Children make the cutest cast members of our beloved tv shows and movies with their constant shenanigans and witty one-liners that only a kid could get away with. They did everything from singing and acting to sharing their lives in front of the camera, showcasing their unique talents, but the one thing every child star has in common is that they inevitably grew up. Some chose to make showbusiness their life, keeping their name on marquees, while others ditched the dressing rooms to pursue a more anonymous life with new passions. Some are still in the business, but now they quietly bring that Hollywood magic to audiences from behind the scenes. Today, we will be playing catch up with some of our old favorite child stars who have been living rent-free in the nostalgia neighborhood of our heads. We will even unlock memories of a few you may have forgotten.
He’s More Than Harry
Daniel Radcliffe’s name immediately conjures up fantastical imagery of our favorite wizard, Harry Potter. There’s no tongue-twisting spell that will dissolve his association with J.K. Rowling’s best-selling series, which illuminated his name in Hollywood lights. Here’s what he’s been up to since he set down the wand and left the world of Hogwarts.
Daniel’s star has continued to rise year after year. His first role after Harry Potter was the British hit horror flick The Woman In Black. He’s also been involved in LGBTQ activism through The Trevor Project and appears in the upcoming romantic comedy adventure The Lost City alongside Sandra Bullock and Channing Tatum.
