    I used to avoid looking at those because I thought it was so sad. Now, it makes me smile because I see it didn't happen just to me. :cool:

    Post #15 photo reminded me of a Brit com on long ago with a different single blonde female.
    Really liked it. Short on details, but I wonder who was in it and the show's title.

    Regarding cosmetic surgery - if someone wants it and can afford it, they should go for it.
    Done right, it's very flattering.

    Theodore Cleaver (Jerry Mathers) didn't age well.

    Henry Winkler looks the same in both pics, except for the eyebrows.

    Russell Crowe, one of my favorite actors of all time, didn't do the age thing very well..........

    I enjoy looking at how Wally and The Beaver look as old men...then I look at myself and I'm equally shocked!

    How Barbara Eden looks today at 88. Seen her in an episode of The Virginian yesterday. She was 33 then.

    Barry and Stanley Livingston who were brothers in real life and on the show, My Three Sons. Stanley is 69 and Barry is 66.

    Yeah, they get old just like the rest of us. What a revelation.

    Seems the original premise for this thread was lost with "how actors have aged" pictures instead. :D

    Here's a pretty young Anna Chlumsky, who starred in the movie "My Girl" along with Dan Akyroyd and Jamie Lee Curtis.

    And all grown up in the TV series "Hannibal", about the early days of everyone's favorite cannibal, Hannibal Lector.

    I was watching an old-black/white episode of Gunsmoke the other day and seen a very young Tom Skerritt, of Top Gun fame. I identified him almost immediately.

    Other tv shows, like Love Boat, Fantasy Island, Bonanza had very young actors in them. I remember seeing an extremely young Jodi Foster on Bonanza as well as a very young Wayne Newton. Yes, "Mr. Las Vegas" was on Bonanza years and years ago.

    If you do watch an old tv show, do you ever notice a particular actor, that is still alive, and look them up to see who they are? I do it quite often.

    Just what do members have to do, try to find a thread that has been done the same? Thanks for finding this thread, Beth, because, even though I replied to Ken's thread, I didn't even think, or remember, the thread had been done before.

    Actually, I wonder if there is a way, when doing the title of a new thread, a thread like it would appear?

    I just have a good memory. :p

    Besides, it looks like the premise of Ken's thread was lost, becoming a "how the actors aged" photo gallery. :D

    If you put some possible words that might have been used before (that your new thread is about), it will show threads that use those words, and if you check the “titles” button, then it only shows you threads with that word in the title of the thread.
    For instance, if you searched for “rodeo”, titles only, it would show you any threads with Rodeo in the title, and if you do not limit the search to titles only, then you will see any thread that has the word in it.
    You can also specify a name, so if you only want to find a thread about rodeo, where you commented, then use the ‘Posted by member” and put in your name (or anyone else’s name you want to search for).
    Sometimes, you might have to try a couple search terms, but it will usually get you to whatever topic you are trying to find.

    Traveling backwards on the vein, I made a small discovery whilst perusing Prime Video.
    One of the actors in a comedy BBC production called “A little bit of Fry and Laurie” looked vaguely familiar. After watching it for a bit I was right and the familiar face was indeed House or rather, Hugh Laurie.
    The gruff face and actions of the actor who portrayed House in the series by the same name was many years ago a skinny clean faced comedian in the British series I mentioned earlier in this post.

    I knew when he played the part on House that he was British and had modified his speech pattern to emulate a normal Americana type of plain talk but I didn’t realize in full what that meant until I saw part of the comedy series.
