This book is the go-to guide for fans for biographical information, rare photos, and interesting trivia about their favorite child stars, shows, networks, and the times that defined the shows. Spanning sixty years of television history, this book details both the success stories and tragedies of many child stars.
Life is not always easy for child actors once their time in the spotlight is gone. The co-author of X Child Stars was once a child star herself. Kathy Garver played Cissy in Family Affair and personally knew many of the child actors of the 60’s and 70’s. She often interjects herself into many of the stories that have been collected. It is interesting to see which actors successfully transitioned into adult actors, which actors left show business and became successful in other fields, and which actors crashed and burned. X Child Stars is a browse-able book and will bring back a lot of memories for television viewers of a certain age.
