Have you ever been channel-surfing and come across someone that was pretty popular years ago that you’re pretty sure isn’t dead but you haven’t seen in a long time? Well, here are some of those entertainers who have either retired from show business altogether or have changed vocations within the entertainment industry. For each celeb, we have included an old photo, a recent photo and what they’re doing now.
KEITH THIBODEAUX, Age 62
Little Ricky from I Love Lucy is now a manager for his wife’s ballet company, Ballet Magnificat, which is considered the premiere Christian dance company in the United States.
PAMELYN FERDIN, Age 54
You probably recognize her as being on just about on every 1970s show where a female pre-teen character was needed. Ferdin left acting in the 1980s and became a registered nurse. She is now an animal rights activist (she has been arrested during protests) and still does some voice acting work.
DANIELLE BRISEBOIS, Age 44
Stephanie from All in the Family is not only a recording artist, but has written and produced songs for many artists including Clay Aiken, Kelly Clarkson, Paula Abdul and Kylie Minogue.
BOBBY SHERMAN, Age 70
In the 1970s, Sherman was a teen idol in the same stratosphere as David Cassidy. In the 1990s, he became a technical reserve officer with the LAPD. He is also a medical training officer.
