Many kids who ruled the industry in the 1980s continued to appear on many sitcoms that aired then, and Josh Blake was no exception. He starred in “Married with Children” and “Full House” and planned for a grand acting career.
But not everything in life goes the way we hoped it would, and this can definitely be said for Blake. Ultimately, in the early ’00s, he dropped acting altogether and invested his time into real estate. Becoming an actor was always too risky in Josh’s eyes, therefore he turned to a much more stable profession. He played his cards right as he is very successful in what he does.
The Tanner Family was one of the most popular families in the 1980s. Everyone was familiar with Willie, Kate, Lynn, Brian, and their cat Lucky. But who remembers baby Eric? In the third season of the show, Kate gives birth to a new baby boy named Eric. Eric was part of the cast until the final episode.
Having another child was not part of the original script, and it were all kinds of improvisation as the show was running. Anne Schedeen (who played Kate Tanner) fell pregnant in real life. The production didn't want to let Anne go or replace her with another actress, so her pregnancy was written into the storyline.
Josh Blake as Jake Ochmonek
Josh Blake plays the role of Jake Ochmonek, the nephew who comes to live with his aunt and uncle. He goes through a difficult time, as most young teenagers would go through what he did, and eventually moves in next door with the Tanners.
ALF is Jake's role model. He looks up to him and sees beyond the lump of fur and, oh yeah, the fact that he's an extraterrestrial from the planet of Melmac. ALF helps Jake cope with life's obstacles and turns him into a well-educated and polite young man. Before "ALF," Blake had already been on TV shows such as "Comedy Factory" and "Once a Hero."
What Do You Know About ALF?
The TV show "ALF" was one of a kind, and there are facts and figures that we are sure you have forgotten or never knew to begin with. ALF was born on the 28th of October, 1756. He came from the planet Melmac, where the sky is green, and the grass is blue.
The sun in Melmac was not as hot as the one on Earth, and instead of being in a shade of gold, it was in all shades of purple. Melmac was destroyed, and ALF found himself lost in space. Hence why he ended up in the Tanners' household in search of a new life.
Fran Drescher as Brian's Love Intrest
Fran Drescher plays a small but extremely entertaining role in "ALF." She appears in one of ALF's dreams as the love interest of Brian Tanner, she dislikes ALF and tells Brian to get rid of him. Luckily enough, this was only in ALF's dream.
Fran Drescher didn't have to do much to make the audience laugh. Her unique and squeaky tone of voice and her overall appearance was enough to make this specific episode one to remember. Before "ALF," Drescher had already shown up in shows such as "Who's the Boss?" and "Fame," among others. She even had a cameo in "Saturday Night Fever."
