In Hollywood, actors and actresses are constantly coming and then going. It doesn’t matter if they are the biggest child stars on the planet – there is no guarantee that their careers will still be there when they reach adulthood. Some of the child actors that we have come to love have disappeared right before our very eyes. We hardly ever notice that they are gone because new actors and actresses quickly fill the void. It kind of makes us want to warn people who want to get into the business not to bother. The industry is just way too fickle – just ask these 12 stars. They were super popular before they were forgotten!
12. Soleil Moon Frye
At the age of seven, Soleil Moon Frye became a big star when she landed the lead role on “Punky Brewster.” Since then, she has continued to act, taking roles on television and supporting roles in films. Her biggest role since Punky Brewster was on “Sabrina the Teenage Witch” as Sabrina Spellman. She’s currently the host of “Home Made Simple,” which is on the Oprah Winfrey Network and she also has career outside of film and television. She has an organic specialty clothing shop for children, The Little Seed, in Los Angeles and she wrote a book, “Happy Chaos: From Punky to Parenting and My Perfectly Imperfect Adventures in Between.”
