Posted: 11/25/03 at 10:51amChild performers have a rough way to go. Although I yearned to be professional as a child, knowing what I know now, my parents had the right idea. Ive known a lot of people who were in the business as kids, and 95% of them are off-balance. They were expected to act like little adults at age 10. They go through terrible esteem issues when they grow up and dont work as much. I had one friend who was always told she was talented enough to be a prima ballerina when she was a child at the NYCB school. However, when she hit puberty the boobs came, the body changed — and she was booted out on her pointe shoes. Her mother even RESENTED her for growing up, and made no bones about it. Truly sick.

I remember when I was a child I wanted more than anything to be a professional actor, like the children I saw on the disney channel or nickelodeon. I even went on a couple of auditions yet nothing ever came of it. Looking back on it now Im grateful that I was able to have a somewhat normal childhood instead of growing up in the spotlight. Now that Im grown up, educated and know how to function in the real world Im much better suited to enter the world of showbuisness, if I ever get that lucky! :-p

I know you cant blame all the adult woes of former child performers on the business, but we all have to agree that its not exactly the most stable way to grow up.Updated On: 11/25/03 at 10:51 AMKAP103Chorus Member

Posted: 12/4/03 at 2:41pmI use to get him mixed up with Chad Allen all the time. I dont think Jonathan Brandis was gay. I had heard about the thought of suicide but I never read any follow up. So, thanks for posting info because I had been wondering exactly how he died.Call it a regime change…

Another friend was a cute kid — absolutely cherubic — that did a lot of commercials — and while he was doing those commercials, would also be abused by some of the sick adults he worked with. He ended up being a call boy, and is now dead.

As to Brandis, i recognize the name but have not seen many of his roles. The name resounds for something else as well…was he openly gay?Will: They dont give out awards for helping people be gay… unless you count the Tonys. I guarantee that well have tough times. I guarantee that at some point one or both of us will want to get out. But I also guarantee that if I dont ask you to be mine, Ill regret it for the rest of my life…Broadway Legend

As far as hanging, it was apparently intentional on his part. I read an article stating that earlier he had been with friends and said that it was the last time they would all be together but none of them made teh connection.

Dont know if he was gay.. perhaps you are thinking of openly gay actor Chad Allen……


Posted: 11/25/03 at 10:34amIts always so sad to hear about a child star who dies young. I believe the last child star that took their life was Dana Plato back in 99. Very sad
