90’s kids will surely remember the stars of Nickelodeon shows like All That, Clarissa Explains It All, and The Secret Life of Alex Mack. These shows were all the rage at that time, while most of the lead characters graced several covers and pages of teen magazines. Oh how nostalgic to remember our television sets blaring each week with popular Nickelodeon shows. We loved those shows too much but have you ever wondered about your favorite Nick stars? Where are they now or what are they up to now?
Oh dear Amanda we missed seeing you on tv! Ms. Bynes rose to prominence on The Amanda Show and All That. She was well on her way to fame especially when she appeared in several Hollywood films such as What I Like About You, She’s The Man and Hairspray to name a few. However, it looks like Amanda has lost it. Fame must have gotten the best of her and she’s now touted as crazy Amanda. News of her insane tweets, wigs, arrests and lighting a driveway on fire are what we’ve recently heard from this troubled actress.
Michael C. Maronna
Well known for playing the role of “Big Pete” from the Adventures of Pete and Pete, Michael further catapulted to Hollywood fame when he played the role of Jeff McCallister in both Home Alone and Home Alone 2: Lost in New York. The latest news about this former child star is that he works as an electrician on several TV shows and spends most of his time behind the cameras. We can assume that he no longer wants the attention and fame.

In 2003, he auditioned for Saturday Night Live but alas! for he lost the role to his former costar, Kenan Thompson. We hope all’s well with these two though.
Sean will be remembered for playing the part of Sam, Clarissa’s (Melissa Joan Hart) platonic best friend who is often seen crawling through her window in Clarissa Explains It All.
