I was watching the Neverending Story (again) last night and I got to thinking – what the hell happened to those kids? None of them look familiar and no one has ever really talked about any of them for years so I thought I’d do a little research Time Traveller’s Scrunchie style…
OK, remember this kid?
That’s Bastian. He’s the kid who sits in the school’s attic for the whole movie, reading books and eating apples. He is so me when I read a book.
And I have nothing clever to say about this unicorn gif, I just had to put it in. So anyway, here he is now…
Barret Oliver looks like he never left the attic and probably doesn’t get a lot of requests for autographs I reckon. Barret quit acting in the late 80’s and became a Scientologist, a printer and a photographer specialising in 19th century film processes, whatever that is. He’s also had a book published called ‘A History of the Woodburytype’ which is available on Amazon for all you die hard fans.
How about this kid?!
Wasn’t she just the cutest little cherub of a childlike empress?! Don’t cry empress, Bastian will give you a name even if you can’t work out what the hell it is.
Tami Stronach also quit acting and went on to become a professional dancer. Oh you can totally see her in a pair of ballet shoes! She’s still dancing and you can find out all about her pretty awesome dance career here.
But what about ATREYU?! He’s the one we really wanna know about! The warrior who went on the quest to end all quests to stop the nothing only to have his horse Artax die in the Swamps of Sadness. :’-(
Well he’s alive and well and living in LA, building Choppers and tattooing people for a living. OMG I totes wanna get ATREYU to do my tattoo!!!! :-O
Cool bananas! But don’t fret guys, after like thirty years he’s back taking acting classes! He recently appeared in a couple of B-grade movies including a thing called Sushi Girl so we might be seeing more of him soon!
