Where are they now? Child Stars

It's been a while since I've done a where are they now post, so for your viewing pleasure, you ask, WHERE are they now?

First up
Tiffany Brissette - The "Small Wonder" actress is now 38 and no longer an actress, but a nurse in Colorado! 
Remember Larisa Oleynik from Ten Things I Hate About You?  url

Or if we go way back, recall her from her Nickelodeon days as Alex Mack? I do! I do! 


Larisa is still acting, and has recently been seen on the hit show, Mad Men. 

Not a fan of that chopped hair, but what can you do....

Speaking hair...


Remember Joseph Gordon Levitt from his 3d Rock from the Sun days? I never got into that show, but I do remember him from Ten Things I Hate About You which he starred with Larisa in! :)

I recently saw him in Looper, and he was in the movie Inception starring Leo DiCaprio which was a terrific movie!

Shawna Waldron - Becky 'Icebox' O'Shea from "Little Giants"  You all remember "You walk like a boy you talk like a boy but do you pee standing up?" hahah (famous line from the movie or somewhat along those lines!)

She's continued acting, but in movies like low-budget horror films "Lizzie" and "Cyrus". Gotta be honest and say I haven't heard of either of those movies! Good to know she's still somewhat in the business. 

Jurnee Smollett - If you grew up in the '90s, chances are you remember Smollett as the sassy best friend in, well, just about everything--she was a recurring character on "Full House," "Hangin' With Mr. Cooper," and "Cosby." The more grown up Smollett burst back on to the scene around 2008 with roles on "Grey's Anatomy" and "Friday Night Lights."

It wasn't till I read the credit for Friday Night Lights that I put her face to a main character on that show. Love that show, so sad it's not on anymore. 


And there you have it for my latest addition of "where are they now".

*All stats and info was found via google search! 



  1. I love that these childhood actors have kept their life clean! I love 10 things I hate about you. My husband still has never seen it...I need to change that!!

  2. I used to love watching The Secret World of Alex Mack. I used to think that she was the coolest! Ha!

  3. I was literally wondering what happened to Alex Mack about two weeks ago. You totally read my mind. Great post!

  4. I loved Ten Things I Hate About You! I really want to go watch it now! Also, Friday Night Lights was a favorite and I am sad it isn't on anymore :(

  5. I would have never recognized the girl from Full House! As unique-looking as she was as a child, I definitely thought she'd still be more different looking than she is now (if that makes any sense?). And SWofAM???? I had a dream about her in college (you know, like 10 years after it went off air) and almost jumped the 6' from my loft in my sleep. My roommate flipped out and woke me up, probably saving me from breaking an ankle or two!

  6. Larisa Oleynik is also playing Maggie now on Pretty Little Liars, Ezra's ex and baby momma!~
