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.Aurora Rose/REX/Shutterstock
