The Kid, Bridge to Terabithia, Peter Pan — it seems that all our favorite movies were released just recently but they’re actually 10-15 years old already! Child actors starring in these movies have grown up too. Philip Wiegratz, for example, who played the chocolate lover Augustus Gloop in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, turned 26. And Henry Thomas who we remember as Elliott from E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial has been married twice and has a child.
