They wish you a Merry Christmas! Every year, fans repeatedly watch their favorite holiday movies, including It is a wonderful life And Home alone – but what happened to the guys who starred in iconic films?
While the protagonists often get all the love – like Tim Allen as Santa Claus / Scott Calvin in Santa Claus trilogy: the cute children’s stars who accompany them help make the movies warmer and blurrier.
Current love, for example, it has a lot of great adult actors like Liam Neeson And Keira Knightley, but for many it is the stepson of Neeson’s character, Sam, who steals the show. Almost a decade after the British romantic comedy hit theaters in 2003, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, who played Sam, is still being recognized for his adorable role.
“I do not believe Current love will go nowhere. I think I will forever be known as the cute little boy of Current love,” the Tata McPhee the actor said Mr. Porter in an interview published in February 2021. “I’m not sorry, that’s fine.”
The Tramp boy the star recalled hating “being insulted in any way or pampered as a child” while working in the entertainment industry. That desire to be treated as just one of the cast ultimately transformed how he approached work as a child and beyond.
“When I went to the set, everyone just treated me like another person hired to do a job and I loved that sense of responsibility,” Brodie-Sangster told the outlet. “But, I mean, this has to affect how you develop and grow as a person.”
Karolyn Grimes is another actor who will never be forgotten for his role in a Christmas movie. The California native played Bailey’s daughter Zuzu in 1946 It is a wonderful life, and 75 years later, she’s happy that people stop her again to talk about the moving film.
Grimes was only six when he uttered the famous phrase: “Look, Dad, the teacher says that every time a bell rings, an angel puts out wings.” It wasn’t until the age of nearly 40 that he saw the film through and through, and at that moment he realized why viewers loved it so much.
“It hit me in a way I will never forget,” Grimes told al Washington Post in December 2021 reflecting on the classic tale. “I was taken on an emotional roller coaster and finally realized what a wonderful message this film has for everyone. Then I realized that this was going to be part of my life, because I wanted it to be. “
When it came to his memorable line, he admitted he couldn’t have imagined how “those words would have been so special to so many people”. He added: “I’m thrilled to have told them and to have been a part of that scene and that movie.”
