The Lost Boys Cast: What Do They Look Like Now?
The Lost Boys Cast have come a long way since the classic eighties horror film first came to our screens!
It was pretty scary in places, but was gentle enough for teens to enjoy without it being too much – it was certainly no Texas Chainsaw Massacre!
The Lost Boys was great in that it used teens in the lead roles so that its audience could relate to it and picture ourselves being involved in the same, or a similar, story!
Let’s find out what these lost boys have been up to since then…
1. Jason Patric – Michael (Then)
After playing the lead role of Michael in The Lost Boys, Jason Patric has gone on to keep acting and has cropped up in many a film in the years since.

We’ve seen Patric starring in the likes of Speed 2: Cruise Control, My Sister’s Keeper, Wayward Pines and Gangster Land.
In 2012, Patric began filming the Civil War film Copperhead but was removed several weeks into the shoot for failing to take direction.

He was replaced by Billy Campbell.
You may not know this, but Patric began dating actress Julia Roberts days after she cancelled her wedding to Kiefer Sutherland in 1991. Can you believe it?
That’s right, Patric dated the ex of his Lost Boys co-star. Awkward.
2. Kiefer Sutherland – David (Then)
The lead of the group of teen vampires, David was a chilling character who was played to perfection by the versatile actor, Kiefer Sutherland.

Due to his extensive film and television work, Sutherland has been inducted into both the Hollywood and Canadian Walk’s of Fame and has received a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Zurich Film Festival.
Sutherland was boyfriend of Julia Roberts and was about to marry her, until she cancelled the wedding back in 1991.
3. Jami Gertz – Star (Then)
Star was the beautiful female in the group of vampires and the real reason that Michael was tempted in to their group.
Jami Gertz was cast to play the role of Star in the Lost Boys.

Alongside his co-star, Corey Feldman, the pair were known collectively as The Two Coreys.
Haim was troubled by drug addiction throughout his later career.
He became addicted to painkillers while on the set of Without Malice, which at the time he hoped would be his big comeback.
He went to rehab a total of 15 times throughout his adult life, and tragically died of pneumonia on the 10th March 2010.
At the time of his death he and Feldman were working on a sequel of the 80’s classic License to Drive together called License to Fly, a concept of Haim’s.
