Pretty shocking that 19 year old Cameron Boyce died before 101 year old Baby Peggy.
The present day boy illustrated that the cycle is continuing, but the kid was bland. His dad, however, could find work as a character actor.
Noticed that kids chosen were often emotionally fragile to begin with, due to family situation or just temperament. Thomas weeping in the audition did’t seem emotionally strong. Maybe later problems result from the quality of child employed.
Wil Wheaton was interesting. He might have been the first victim of cancel culture, when bullies on the Internet battered his Star Trek performance for no particular reason..
