Child Stars Photo Portfolio

The child stars who shaped Gen X are all grown up—and they're all here in our exclusive photo portfolio.

TIFFANY BRISSETTE
Age: 32 \\ Best known as: Vicki the Robot on Small Wonder

The plot—an engineer builds a robot that looks just like a 10-year-old girl and “raises” her in his home—was absurd, and the production quality laughable. What made Brissette’s Vicki so memorable were the machine’s awkward attempts to fit in. “There were times when I’d try to sneak human emotion into the scene,” explains Brissette, “and my producers would always say ‘No, no! You’re a robot!’” She still finds herself drawn to human feelings, working as a nurse in Boulder, Colorado.
