Considering the popularity of the first post I wrote about child stars in horror films, I figured it was about time that I wrote up a part II: with more kids who have become more grown-up, Many of them seem to be working jobs that are not even in the movie industry. Today, we look at four more horror kids, with some being more recognizable than others. How many do you recognize?
If you couldn’t already tell from the picture, Galligan is mostly known for the cult classic Gremlins as young-faced Billy. Still acting to this day, at the age of 51, We last saw Zach in Hatchet III as Sheriff Fowler. He’s even working on a movie adaptation of the graphic novel known as: The Chair.
Although not a recognizable name at first, Daveigh is actually fairly well known, both as Samantha in Donnie Darko, and Samara in The Ring. Like Danielle Harris in part 1, Chase grew up to be quite the catch; at age 24. So much of a catch in fact – I’d wager a bet that I’m not the only one who would be okay with her crawling out of my TV now-a-days!
Whether you’ve heard of it or not, The Monster Squad is one of my favorite family-friendly horror films. Basically, being The Goonies of horror films. Sean, played by Andre Gower, the one in the orange shirt is our actor of choice this time around.. Now 41, he has been in a few movies lately, but mainly acts as an acting coach for those starting out in the entertainment industry.
I grew up loving The Addams Family  but the real definitive version of the show was the 60’s version of the series, in black and white. With either version of the series though, my favorite character [and first TV crush] was always Wednesday Addams! Loring, who played Wednesday in the 60’s version of the show, is now 57 years old – with two kids! She was last seen in a movie back in 2013.
With four newer child stars, that concludes Part II of “where are they now?” . Now I turn to you, the reader; which of these actors surprised you the most? Or more importantly, would you allow Samara to crawl through your TV? ..at least as she looks now! If you enjoyed reading this piece, head over to Facebook and click the “like” button on my page.
