What Child Actors That We Adored in Childhood Look Like Today

It may seem like it was just yesterday that we rushed to our TVs to turn on Beethoven, The Addams Family, or The Little Rascals, but it’s actually 2020 now! And the children that played the main parts in our favorite films and TV shows are adults now. Some of them are brilliant actors and some of them, like Jake Lloyd who portrayed the young Anakin, were not able to deal with all the fame and just disappeared from the spotlight.

The Bright Side team has done a little research and found the child actors that we remember, thanks to their roles in popular movies and TV series. You’ll surely be surprised at what they look like today. Here’s a warning: At the end of the article, there is a bonus that is bound to shock you: you will never guess what the boy from the video of the coolest song of the 2000s looks like today.
