  • Similar as one-hit-musicians like OMI with his song "Cheerleader", Magic! "Rude", Passenger "Let Her Go" and Ritchie Valens with "La Bamba", these actors achieved one great film.
  • Films like The Exorcist, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial and Home Alone made the actors famous and rich.
Linda Blair

1. Linda Blair. She was 14 years old when played her character in the scary movie of The Exorcist, where she was the "possessed" girl. In an interview when she was a grown up she told to the journalists "it was like being one of the Beatles, it was terrifying". She then played in other minor horror movies, but never reached the success she got as a teenager.

Henry Thomas


2. Henry Thomas. He played Elliot, the friend of the alien E.T. His scene with the bicycle is one of the most reminded in the story of Hollywood. The film consecrated Steven Spielberg as a director. After the success, the actor took a break to finish his education. Thomas appeared later into other films, but sporadically, and to this day, he still does TV commercials related to his famous movie.

Macaulay Culkin


3. Macaulay Culkin. Despite being almost 40 years old, he has the same face that he had when he was a boy. Everybody remembers him for the Kevin Alone series. Culkin is a mystery. He disappeared from Hollywood and people even thought he was dead. After some years, he reappeared with a music band and recently, he signed to appear as a cameo in the remake of his hit.
