Corey Feldman

One of the most popular child actors of the 1980s, Corey Feldman was a likable, smart-alecky lead in numerous kid-friendly films of the decade, including "Gremlins" (1984), "The Goonies" (1985), "Stand By Me" (1986) and "The Lost Boys" (1987). The latter film marked the beginning of a long and sometimes complex friendship with fellow teen idol Corey Haim, who Feldman would later suport through some of his personal struggles. Feldman continued to work in movies and TV, occasionally poking gentle fun at his own former teen idol status. Feldman eventually achieved a second career as himself - a former child star, with the scars to prove it - and appeared with Haim in the reality series "The Two Coreys" (A&E, 2007-08). Feldman's status as childhood favorite for so many '80s-era teens, as well as his ability to persevere where so many before him had struggled, ensured him Hollywood immortality as a childhood star who managed to maintain a career well beyond his adolescent years.
