Re: [mythsoc] Boorman Worries About Potter Actor
- Good question. Some child stars do go on to live
happy lives. One big thing is to avoid the drugs and
so forth in the Hollywood life style. But should we
have child stars at all? Isn't it a kind of
explotation? Then we couldn't have movies like Harry
Potter. Would that be a big loss? (I do like the
books.) Just some thoughts. Thanks, Steve Dufour
