We all know about the current fortunes of prominent 1980s teen movie babes like Jamie Gertz, poor Kim Richards or (the above pictured) Lea Thompson but what about some of the other ladies from that era who haven’t kept that high a profile? Well I have wondered about several of them even if you folks haven’t and behind the cut is my update on 5 of my favorite ladies from some of my favorite teen movies from the 80s.
One of my favorite horror movies (based on the best book Stephen King has ever written in my humble opinion) is the made for TV mini-series IT. While the standout of the movie is the great performance of Tim Curry as Pennywise the evil clown that plagues the town of Derry, Maine, the other big selling point of the film is the portion that is set in the characters past. In this half of the film a group of outcast kids do battle with Pennywise and the kid actors all delivered amazing performances. So it got me to thinking…what the hell have those kids been up to since they all starred in this movie?
