Kristy McNichol (b. 1962)

Then:
A-minus version of Jodie Foster as seen in Family and Little Darlings.

Now:
Keeping to herself, i.e., we have no idea what she's up to, and we think she likes it that way.

FYI:

  • Sister of Jimmy McNichol.
  • Acting teacher, circa 2001, per IMDb.com.
  • Most recently worked in Hollywood as voice-over actor in 1998 animated series, Invasion America.
  • Acted only sporadically after leaving cast of TV's Empty Nest in 1992.
  • Long rumored to be afflicted with manic depression, but McNichol chalked up her behavior -- including fleeing the set of Just the Way You Are (eventually finished, and released in 1984) -- to a delayed reaction to working through her childhood.
  • "Sang" in 1982 musical, The Pirate Movie.
  • Four-time Emmy nominee, two-time winner for Family for role of tomboy teen Buddy Lawrence.
  • Made primetime debut, at age 11, in 1973 episode of Love, American Style.
