I re-watched this film earlier this week. The first time I saw it was back in 1984 in a dark cinema, I enjoyed the film so much that I watched it 3 times on its initial run.
Rewatching this film made me wonder where the cast went afterwards?
Well This isnt a detailed blog as I am getting ready for work and dont really have too much time to create an article of sorts.
But first off. The main star of the film is Barrett Oliver (Bastian) (who also played in films like D.A.R.Y.L from the 80s) isnt acting anymore and in fact teaches photography in a University or college in the USA.
Noah Hathaway who played Atreyu currently owns and runs a tattoo parlour in California, He is still doing a small amount of acting from time to time though after a large gap between 1986 and 2012.
Strangely though in 1986 he starred in a film called Troll. His character name? Harry Potter Jnr.
Tami Stronach who played The Child Empress gave birth to their first child in 2012 and has continued her dancing which she began as a child, She is now approaching her 40th birthday.
So there you have it, not all actors and actresses stay in the business, some decide it isnt for them and move on to ‘regular’ lives.
I still loved watching The Neverending Story even though its decades old, yes some of the effects dont hold up but so what. Its the story after all and its still a wonderful one.
