Wondered: “Whatever happened to Barret Oliver” from Neverending Story, D.A.R.Y.L (he played an AI boy) and several other 80s movies. Heard nothing through the 90s and wasn’t until a few years ago that I saw a picture of him and ‘what he’s doing now’. Anyway, I wondered again just now, and found him on Youtube.
I remember he got disillusioned with Hollywood around the age of 11/12 during D.A.R.Y.L. as we were about the same age and I related to his characters and followed what I saw of him in whatever news I’d find in those pre-internet days.
Anyway, I found a video of him. One of the Youtube commenters says, “he went full vegan pothead”. He teaches photography, doing whatever it is that he loves. Good for him.
