1. Louise and Lisa Burns as the Grady twins in The Shining

After their debut as the iconically creepy 11-year-old twins, the Burns sisters initially hoped to pursue careers in acting but gave up after being turned down from children's roles because of their appearance in the horror genre. Now aged 47 and both residing in London, England, Lisa is a lawyer and Louise is a published scientist.

2. Thomas Brodie-Sangster as Sam in Love Actually

5. Hatty Jones as Madeline in Madeline

It's been 19 years since the plucky blonde orphan, played by Hatty Jones, won our hearts in the movie adaptation of the book Madeline.

The now 28-year-old is a graduate of Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts and has since released a web series on YouTube entitled Offstage.

6. Macaulay Culkin as Kevin McCallister in Home Alone

He dated actor Mila Kunis from 2002 to 2010 and has occasionally resurfaced in movies since 2003, appearing in Party Monster and Sex and Breakfast.
