20 Child Actors Who Grew Up So Fast, We Didn’t Even Notice


Remember classics like The NeverEnding Story, The Chronicles of Narnia, Spy Kids, or even the Cosby Show? It’s amazing how quickly time passes, and the child actors who once starred in these shows have grown up and no longer resemble them.

Take Jonathan Lipnicki, for instance. The adorable kid from Jerry Maguire is now in his 30s! And how about Noah Hathaway, who played the brave Atreyu in The NeverEnding Story? He’s over 50 and still looks great. Even the sweet little Lucy from The Chronicles of Narnia is now 28! It’s like the world blinked, and the kids turned into adults in no time.
