Again, this blogathon includes any child actor or actress who performed in films or on television. Topics can vary from a specific individual, non-profits who help young actors or to general treatment of children in the Golden Era.

For those who are still interested, leave a comment and I will add you to the list.

Having a hard time thinking of a child star? Just ask or visit which has a fairly good list of names of child actors.

  1. Hi there! I would like to contribute a review of “The Keystone Kid: Tales of Early Hollywood” by silent child actor Coy Watson Jr. It’s a really wonderful book and I had been meaning to share it.


  2. I’d love to participate! I could do an overview of Margaret O’Brien’s career, if that’s ok!


  3. Jessica, is the girl in the last banner baby Peggy? If I ever have a child, I want her to look like this little girl!


  4. This sounds like too much fun! If possible, I’d love to do a post on either Franco-English child star Bobby Henrey and THE FALLEN IDOL or on the deadpan scene-stealer George “Foghorn” Winslow. Let me know if that’s okay!


    • I put you down for both so you can pick whichever. Someone is writing about George Winslow but I have no problem with people writing about the same folks!
