How great were the ’90s in all forms of entertainment? They were pretty awesome, and a big part of the success of a lot of the sitcoms and movies that we remember to this day were the performances by child stars and teen stars that we admired or secretly wanted to date on the low low. Their standout roles were YEARS ago, and as we’ve grown, so have they. So what are they doing and looking like now? We’ve found about 11 who were some of our faves back in the day.
Brandon Quintin Adams
You remember Adams as the little boy Zeke dancing in Michael Jackson’s Moonwalker, Jesse in two Mighty Ducks movies, and Kenny in The Sandlot–the lone black face in that movie. And when he got older, he was stud material playing a boo of Moesha on the show of that same name, a boyfriend for Ashley Banks on Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, and many other guest roles. He grew up nicely, and just a few years ago he was trying to pursue a rap career under the name B. Lee. He’s also trying to get back into acting, doing short films, and voicing characters in video games. In an interview with the Chicago Defender, Adams also opened up about his late best friend, Merlin Santana, who played Romeo on The Steve Harvey Show and was killed in 2002: “It took me a long time to recover from that. (Merlin) was my best friend, and (the murder) was a senseless thing.”
