This month is the 30th anniversary of the release of the horror classic A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET and I got to wondering where has life taken the actors from that seminal entry in the annals of horror? Well aside from a certain someone who went on to become one of the biggest movie stars in the world that is. That Lynn Shay is all the rage.
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.
A few weeks ago there was news of a possible continuation of the great SyFy series FARSCAPE being in the works that would deal with the, now 19 year-old, child of Capt. John Crichton and Aeryn Sun becoming the target of evil aliens which would require the old Moya gang to get back together to protect the kid. With that little carrot of a plot being dangled before me I got to thinking about just what the cast of the old show have been up to since it was ended. So with the help of a little Google-Fu I put together this list that answers the question: Where is the cast of FARSCAPE now?
With the news of the VERONICA MARS movie Kickstarter meeting its proposed budget ($3.5 million so far!) in record time resulting in the filming of the movie being set up for this summer, I started wondering what has the cast of this show been up to since the last time we saw them in Neptune? Aside from hanging out with show creator Rob Thomas at Kristen Bell’s house that is.
