6 ’80s And ’90s Stars Making A Comeback
The rise to fame can happen really fast, but it can also be just as fleeting. It takes a lot of work and consistency to be a star, and many singers and actors have trouble keeping the momentum of their career going, especially when there’s a lull in work. Although comebacks don’t happen often, they aren’t entirely unheard of! Here’s a list of 6 stars from the ’80s and ’90s who are currently in the midst of making a successful comeback!
6. Molly Ringwald
Molly Ringwald rose to fame in the ’80s after starring in a number of teen films like Sixteen Candles, Pretty in Pink, The Breakfast Club and For Keeps. She was quickly deemed a teen icon and member of the “Brat Pack.” Ringwald continued to act in the ’90s, but there’s no doubt she was at the peak of her fame in the ’80s. In the early 2000s, she started working on-stage in Broadway musicals and her on-screen credits dropped dramatically. She was cast in The Secret Life of the American Teenager from 2008 to 2013 but made her big return to television in 2016 with a lead role on the television series Raising Expectations and more recently in the new series, Riverdale.
5. Luke Perry
He was one of the main cast members on the hugely popular ’90s teen drama, Beverly Hills, 90210. Luke Perry played the character of Dylan McKay on the television series from 1990 to 1995. While Perry continued to act after he left the series with a few sporadic film roles that were mostly in made-for-TV movies and a lot of voice-over work, he was never again cast in a regular role on television or on another show of that scale. Things might be changing though! It seems as though he’s making a comeback with a regular casting in the CW series Riverdale as Fred Andrews.
