It’s been 46 years since the start of the 1970’s – we know, we can’t believe it either!
The ’70s was a great decade for Hollywood, numerous legendary films were produced and our TV screens were lit up with ‘The Brady Bunch’ and ‘Happy Days’. We were introduced to some of the greatest actors/actresses of all time, but at the time they were just children trying to make it in tinsel town.
The famous young faces that kept us entertained show after show and commercial after movie had to eventually grow up, and it’s shocking to see which stars let fame go straight to their heads, which stars blossomed into further success and which stars turned away from acting all together.
Prepare to feel nostalgic as we take a look at some of the biggest child stars of the seventies, and then compare them to the people they grew up to be.
Erin Murphy – Then
Murphy is most commonly known for her role as Tabitha Stephens in the hugely popular ‘Bewitched’ TV series that ran from 1964 to 1972. She shared the spotlight with her fraternal twin sister, Diane, but as the children grew older and looked less alike, Murphy took on the role by herself and became one of the most famous young actresses in the world.
