Cast of National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation: Where are They Now?
11. Miriam Flynn
Miriam Flynn was always perfect as the sweet, unassuming, stand-by-her-man, Catherine, in three of the vacation movies, as well as one pretty terrible spin-off starring she and Randy Quaid. Miriam is another actress who has done more than most people realize and has pretty much never stopped working. A classic Midwestern type, she has enjoyed co-starring and recurring roles in several TV series, she has voiced several characters in the world of animation and at present, she’s figuring her next move. As it stands, she has 145 acting credits to her published IMDb resume, meaning she has done even more than is available to the public eye. Regarding her role in Christmas Vacation, all first-time turkey roasters should take her as a perfect example of what not to do when cooking poultry.
10. John Randolph
John and Diane played Grandma and Grandpa Griswold, and what an interesting way to cast these two characters. We’ll quickly address John, who passed away in 2004. He worked right up until his death and then left an incredibly, award-winning legacy behind. A veteran of stage and screen, he had a charm that was unparalleled, and it’s evident in Christmas Vacation, when he offers some incredible, fatherly advice to Clark Jr.
