Watching a rerun of the Sixth Sense or the Free Willy series has probably often made you wonder, “What happened to these child actors? Where are they now?” Not all actors who attained fame as a television or movie child artiste were able to sustain it when they grew up. While some just couldn’t find the right breakthrough as an adult, others moved on to other fields of interest. Then there were those who just disappeared completely and no one knows where they are or what they are presently doing.
Let’s take a look at six popular actors who made it big as a kid but disappeared from films when they grew up.
#1 – Haley Joel Osment
One of the most successful child actors, Haley Joel Osment attained stardom through his roles in movies such as Sixth Sense, Pay it Forward, and Artificial Intelligence. He was even nominated for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his role of a psychic child in the Sixth Sense. While his phrase in the movie, “I see dead people” became quite a popular catchphrase, one wonders why we don’t see him anymore in movies. The only thing that we heard about him as an adult was that he was arrested for driving under influence of alcohol in 2006.
