The movie Hook was a blisteringly ambitious take on the Peter Pan legend. It had an A-list cast which included the late Robin Williams as Pan, Dame Maggie Smith as Wendy, Julia Roberts as Tinkerbell and Dustin Hoffman as the titular Hook. But it also included lots of child actors as the Lost Boys and other important young characters. It’s been over 25 years since the film came out, so what became of all those who made it great?

20. Gwyneth Paltrow (Young Wendy)

Before Gwyneth Paltrow became a famous actress/lifestyle guru, she was just starting out in the industry as an 18-year-old. In fact, the role of young Wendy Darling was only the second part she’d ever had in a movie. Paltrow did have one big advantage on her side when it came to fame, though. And that’s because Steven Spielberg, Hook’s director, is her godfather.

19. Bryan and Brett Willis (Sooner and Later)

Real-life twins Brett and Bryan Willis played Lost Boy twins, the neatly named Sooner, and his brother, Later. Hook was the only acting the boys ever did, though, as they both ditched the film industry after that and went on to be firefighters in Los Angeles! But they did show up for the 2016 Lost Boy reunion and recreated a scene from the film.
