In some cases, child stars are the actors whose roles you recall, but whose names you can’t for the life of your remember. The cute little girl from Mrs. Doubtfire! The other kids from Home Improvement who weren’t Jonathan Taylor Thomas! Those kids. And then there are the child stars who grew up to be incredibly well-respected adult actors, like Michelle Williams, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Anna Paquin. (And then there are some that you remember but feel kind of sad for and we won’t get into that just yet.) VH1 is going to be counting down all the best, most memorable kids whose roles were unforgettable and in some cases, who are still going strong after all these years, so join us for 100 Greatest Kid Stars when it premieres November 29th at 9 p.m. ET/PT. The countdown will last for four nights, so that’s a lot of nostalgia to brush up on.
