- This charismatic and funny girl was actually played by Alisan Porter when she was just 10 years old. And even though the movie became an instant classic, Porter pretty much vanished from the big screen after a few guest-starring roles.
- You may remember Kelly McGillis from her hit roles in Witness alongside Harrison Ford and Top Gun with Tom Cruise. She’d built up quite the filmography before she decided to end her career to spend more time with her family.
- Meg Ryan was a true star of rom-coms and dramas of the 90s. Sleepless in Seattle, When Harry Met Sally, You've Got Mail, Kate & Leopold: that's only a few of her spectacular roles that made the world fall in love with her.
- Do you remember Ted from the Beethoven movies or nerdy Mark from Step by Step? These characters were made famous by Christopher Castile, who also took part in several made-for-TV films of the early 90s.
- Nicholle Tom is famous for her roles in The Nanny and Beverly Hills, 90210. But her big break was, once again, in Beethoven. Unlike Castile, though, Nicholle decided to proceed with her acting career and continued working in movies and TV shows.
- Marlon Wayans is definitely an actor with a huge range, from the hilarious Scary Movie franchise to the dark and depressing Requiem for a Dream.
- Matthew Lillard is an instantly recognizable dude and stands out in pretty much every movie he’s in, whether it’s Scream, Senseless, She’s All That, Scooby Doo, or any other role on his very lengthy filmography.
- Ah, the iconic Bill Murray! We know him as Dr. Peter Venkman from the Ghostbusters movies, but this 68-year-old actor has a decade-spanning career full of incredibly famous roles.
- Alicia Silverstone gained instant fame for her brilliant portrayal of Cher Horowitz in the 1995 movie Clueless. After that, she appeared in other successful films like Batman and Robin, Excess Baggage, and Blast from the Past.
- Jean Reno's role in The Professional both captured and broke our hearts all at the same time. So it's no surprise that the French actor immediately caught Hollywood’s attention.
- Andie MacDowell started her career in the 80s as a really successful model but then tried her hand at acting. And it was definitely a right move! Green Card, Groundhog Day, Four Weddings and a Funeral, and that's still not the whole list of the major movies she played in. Ah, the iconic Bill Murray!
- Nicholas Cage was a busy guy in the 90s! Actually, with over 100 movies in his personal filmography, he just doesn’t quit!
- We’ll forever remember Jeff Daniels for his goofball role in Dumb & Dumber. It was this classic comedy that gained him international fame, but the actor also played in tons of other movies in the 90s, like 101 Dalmatians, Pleasantville, and My Favorite Martian.
- Everybody remembers Janice from Friends, and we can thank Maggie Wheeler for bringing this character to life and leaving us laughing until we cry! And even though it's been more than 20 years since she started playing Janice, she continues to give us comedic cold!

    this is a nice change of "where are they know" type of videos compared to other channels that just trashes actors as has-beens even though they're happy doing something else with their lives
