Name That Former Child Star

Postby Shrykespeare » July 25th, 2013, 3:00 am

Here's a new game I just thought of.... so many child actors and actresses grow into adulthood and then either choose different careers after school or just fade away. Others continue acting, but not really in anything notable. So let's see how you guys are at recognizing a few that I chose. If no one guesses within 24 hours I will provide hints.

Please, one guess per person every 12 hours. Give others a chance.


All of these people had signficant roles as a preteen or a just-barely-teen in a major movie between 1980 and 1996. For (irrelevant) bonus points, name the movie that they got their big shot in.

#4. Image

#5. Image


#6. Image
Jonathan Ke Quan, The Goonies and Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom


#7. Image
Tom Guiry, The Sandlot


#8. Image
Ross Malinger, Sleepless in Seattle


#9. Image
Tina Majorino, Waterworld


#10. Image
Danny Lloyd, The Shining

#2 is the youngest daughter from Mrs. Doubtfire. I'm sure she's in other stuff, but that's all I recognize her from.

#3 is Jake "Hey, one day, I'm gonna be Darth Vader !" Lloyd, who we all remember fondly from Phantom Menace (right...).

The 2nd part of this game will be to guess how many of them have done porn after their fame ended.

Complete guess, but she seems to have the same eyes, but is no.1 Newt from Aliens? Don't know the actresses name.

Very good, Surfer. Her name is Carrie Henn.


Also... I don't know if anyone was having a problem with #5, but I was, so I replaced it with another one.

Yes, Brockster, #7 is Tom Guiry from The Sandlot. Well spotted!

And no, #8 is not Rocky's Kid.

Remember, one guess per 12 hours.

I expect #8 to be the one no one gets (maybe).
