If you watched TV or movies in the 1960’s to the 1990’s, you probably wonder where many of the actors you enjoyed are today. Shows like The Brady Bunch or movies like The Godfather are still popular today, but many of the actors have changed quite a lot! Here’s a look 30 actors and performers both in their most famous projects and in recent years.
1. Helen Hunt
Helen was born in a creative family, which was the perfect start in her showbiz career. Her mother, Jane was a photographer, and her father, Gordon, was a director and acting coach, as was her uncle, Peter. Hunt’s foray into showbiz began as a child actress with roles on The Mary Tyler Moore Show and The Swiss Family Robinson. She soon made her move to film with Girls Just Want to Have Fun and Peggy Sue Got Married. Her return to TV saw her on Mad About You opposite Paul Reiser, but she had box office success with Twister and As Good as it Gets, which won her a Golden Globe.
After working steadily for years, Hunt took a bit of a break in 2007 from Hollywood, after starring in and directing the film Then She Found Me, her directorial debut. She came back strong in 2012 with a role in the film The Sessions, where she played a sex surrogate, garnering multiple awards and nominations. That film was followed by Ride and Decoding Annie Parker. Hunt is known as an accomplished director and recently directed episodes of This is Us and Feud: Betty and Joan.
