As a kid growing up, there was always something special about seeing someone my age on the TV or movie screen. I could imagine that the character was myself or a peer who I could learn from. These child actors and actresses seemed to stand up against all the bad guys that Hollywood could throw their way. But sometimes, the bad guys weren’t on the screen.
From Corey Feldman to Macaulay Culkin, from Gary Coleman to Leann Rimes, child performers are taken advantage of by their families and their representation. When you are a minor, you rely on others to look out for your well-being, but in certain situations, the financial control given to a guardian can cloud the view of what is best and for whom.
