9 Creepy Horror Kids — Then And Now  | Danny Lloyd
Danny Lloyd

Film: The Shining (1980)

Then: Stanley Kubrick famously kept the fact that The Shining was a horror movie a secret from the six-year-old playing Danny Torrance. He was picked largely because he could concentrate for long periods, which must have appealed to the pernickety director.

Now: Aside from a couple of small roles, Lloyd abandoned acting and took up teaching. In 2007 he became professor of biology at a Kentucky community college. We’re hoping his employers told him he was going to be lecturing when he got the job.

4 Horror has definitely changed
I wonder if all these kids were subjected to the same crap Linda Blair had to deal with after the Exorcist, she was forced to move out her town as people though she was really possesed. Some of these kids have etched fear onto the minds of many an adult and child after seeing these movies. I hope they are proud of this achievement. Such a shame that they all seem to have been dropped after they made the studios millions, as it the sad fact with most child actors. But I enjoyed the above feature and its good to find out where they are all now. Wasn't there a similar feature previously in Empire's magazine each month on the Where are they now..... More
