These Famous Child Actors Didn’t Find Fame After Growing Up If you are lucky and highly talented, you might stumble upon an opportunity to work in the entertainment industry at a very tender age. Some of these child actors successfully pursue their career even after they grow up (Leonardo Di Caprio, Ryan Gosling).
But life isn’t fair with everyone. Some of these highly talented actors didn’t find enough exposure in the industry after growing up.
Let’s see who they were:
1. Eddie Furlong – Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991)
The notorious John Connor with exceptional biking skills became a teen sensation when this film released. Unfortunately, we haven’t seen him much in films after American History X (1998).
2. Macaulay Culkin – Home Alone 1 and 2
We felt sorry when this cute kid was left alone by his family. But Macaulay made us role down with laughter while defending against three notorious burglars. It’s been over two decades since his final Home Alone came out, and Macaulay seems to have faded from the movie industry.
3. Ralph Macchio – The Karate Kid (1984)
Ralph did a great job with his character of Daniel in the Karate Kid movie series. But after that, we haven’t seen Ralph in a lead role in any movie.
4. Carrie Henn – Aliens (1986)
The role of Newt from this Oscar wining James Cameron film seemed to be the only role Carrie did in her acting career. Now she works as a teacher.
5. Bradley Pierce – Jumanji (1995)
After Jumanji, if you don’t remember seeing Bradley in any famous movie, let us remind you that he was the voice of Chip in The Beauty And The Beast.
Though these guys haven’t been in the limelight for many years, we still love them for their characters in the past and hope that they make a come in near future.
