Lookinland appeared as the dark-haired youngest brother alongside Maureen McCormick on the “Brady Bunch.” He tended to have smaller roles among his older co-stars, but he managed to have his moments despite that.
Lookinland also played parts in “Little House on the Prairie,” the numerous “Brady Bunch” specials, and movies (most famously “Towering Inferno”) before leaving show business. He’s married, has two children, and owns a concrete business in Utah. It sounds like he’s done the incredible – moved from child stardom to a simple, quiet life of family, work, and listening to the Grateful Dead.
Julie Dawn Cole
Julie Dawn Cole got her start as the extremely spoiled child Veruca Salt in "Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory," but also acted into the eighties, most famously on the British television series "Angels." According to her, both she and Denise Nickerson (who played Violet Beauregarde) both had a crush on Peter Ostrum, who played Charlie.
Julie is the mom of two children and leans on her background as Veruca Salt to aid in parenting. Whenever her daughter, Holly, would do something bratty, Julie would say, “Is there a problem, Veruca?” which always slowed the girl's roll.
Shields's career started at five days old when her mother proclaimed, “she's the most beautiful child, and I'm going to help her with her career.” She played the part of a child prostitute in 1978's "Pretty Baby" and a dozen other films, including "The Blue Lagoon" and "Endless Love."
Shields seemed like she was on a path toward classic child-only stardom, but then she took a lead role in "Suddenly Susan," a sitcom that ran between "Seinfeld" and "ER." While the show itself never gained independent fame, Shields herself gained stardom. She's now a model, a mom, and a writer, having written the book "Down Came to the Rain," which detailed her personal struggle with postpartum depression.

Other notable roles include Rorschach in "Watchmen" and playing the re-imagined version of famous horror icon Freddy Krueger. He's also appeared in the science-fiction film "Alita: Battle Angel," which is based on a famous manga comic by Yukito Kishiro.
Cast by Michael Landon to play Anna on "Little House on the Prairie" in 1977, Katy Kurtzman went on to star in "The New Adventures of Heidi" as the titular role, which has garnered her the most fame.
