9 Child-Stars We Used to Adore – But Where Are They Now?

By Nenad Dojcinovski, 29 October 2017


5Angus T. Jones

Millions and millions of people witnessed Jake Harper’s transformation. From a little adorable kid to a clueless teenager, Angus was lucky enough to be a part of one of the best TV shows of all time.

Two And a Half man was hilarious while Charlie Sheen was still a part of it, but we all know why he left. But what happened to Angus or Jake Harper?

After getting insanely rich (netting $300,000 per episode), he became uncomfortable with the show. He referred to himself as a "paid hypocrite" and left the show after being baptized.

6Edward Furlong

The Terminator kid was destined to become a super-star. Thanks to his work as John Connor in Terminator 2: Judgment Day, he won the Saturn and MTV Movie Awards.

Even as a teenager, Edward was lucky enough to work with stars like Edward Norton, Jeff Bridges, and Kathy Bates. We all assumed that he will be in a position to turn down roles, and he ended up struggling to find a decent role in Hollywood.

He was arrested taking drugs like heroin and cocaine, and he’s in for serious alcoholism. He tried to overcome his addiction problems, but he’s still struggling with alcohol. Let’s just hope that his role in the hit film American History X will be a turning point in his life!

7Frankie Muniz


The genius from Malcolm in the Middle is no longer just an actor. He put his acting career on hold to try his luck as a wheel racing career. He was a part of the Atlantic Championship, but that wasn’t enough. The next career on his list was a drummer. Muniz joined the band Kingsfoil for a while but left in 2014.

He’s back to being an actor again, and it’s not too late for him. He’s only 31 years old and ready to return to his days of glory!

8Selena Gomez

We finally have someone who took a full advantage of the Disney Channel. She’s a super-star singer, actor, she’s only 25 and has a net worth of $50 million.

She used to date Justin Bieber, but that’s not what makes her famous. Selena has plenty of number one hits all over the place. The little girl from Wizard of Waverly Place is taking over the world, and we’re happy for her!

9Brandon “Bug” Hall

And last but not least we have Alfalfa Switzer from the hit movie Our Gang. The silly looking kid and his hilarious performance ended up with a Young Artist Award under his belt. Donald Trump appeared in the movie as well, but who cares. It was all about Alfalfa and his gang!

However, Brandon’s career isn’t going exactly as planned. He had troubles finding a leading role and acting projects in general. But he didn’t give up, and he certainly didn’t allow his fame to mess up his plans.

Brandon’s appearance on shows like CSI, 90210 and Criminal Minds helped him gain an international and social media fanbase. He’s using his social media presence to keep on moving forward, and hopefully, land a leading role in near future.
