15 Young Stars Who Died Too Early

Posted in Entertainment on Jan 17th, 2019


Hollywood is a vicious world, particularly, it seems, for child actors. Granted, it would be strange to cast a teenager as an 8-year-old the way that 20-somethings play teens. Kids are needed to tell a story. Unfortunately, a lot of child stars have parents who aren’t looking out for their best interests. Or looking out for them at all, in the cases of some. There’s been a horrendous amount of young stars who have died too early, some of them even before their stars were at their highest.

20. Christopher Pettiet

We know the handsome Christopher Pettiet best from the 90s cult comedy, Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter’s Dead. His career began when he was a child, appearing in series like Star Trek: The Next Generation. Pettiet continued playing small roles in series for the rest of his career until dying of a drug overdose in LA. He was 24.
