CHILDREN of the 80s will remember fondly teen movie The Goonies.
Fans have often been left wondering what happened to the cast of the Steven Spielberg coming-of-age classic – well here's what you need to know.
Where are The Goonies cast now?
The cast of The Goonies thrilled fans when they all joined in a video chat to raise money to go towards the Covid-19 relief fund in April 2020.
The 1985 classic followed a group of misfits as they embarked on treasure hunt and also a journey of self discovery.
While some of the child actors have gone onto be huge stars, some have slipped under the radar.
Josh Brolin as Brand
Probably one of the most successful actors spawned from The Goonies.
Son of the actor James Brolin, Josh, now 52, is well known for starring in the Marvel movies as supervillian Thanos.
His other acting credits include Men In Black 3 (2012) and Deadpool 2 (2018).
Sean Astin as Mikey
Sean was just 14 years old when he took on the role of the adorable Mikey, leader of The Goonies.
The actor, who is now 49, then went on to play Sam in the blockbuster Lord Of The Rings trilogy.
In 2019 he appeared in the last ever season of The Big Bang Theory.
Jeff Cohen as Chunk
Who can forget Chunk and his famous 'truffle shuffle' and him shouting "hey you guys!".
The actor who played him, Jeff Cohen, couldn't be more different to Chunk.
Now 45, the former child star gave up acting to be attorney and is now a successful LA lawyer.
Corey Feldman as Mouth
Corey is probably one of the most famous actors out of them all.
After The Goonies he appeared in other coming-of-age movies like the Stand By Me (1986) and The Lost Boys (1987).
He was known for his friendship with fellow child star Corey Haim, who passed away in 2010.

Martha played the no nonsense Stef who caught the interest of Mouth.
The actress, who famously dated the late River Phoenix, has since found fame on TV.
Her shows include Younger, The Good Wife and The Real O'Neals.

Before The Goonies, Jonathan had already found fame in Indiana Jones And The Temple Of Doom (1984).
Now 48, Jonathan has turned his attention to being a stunt coordinator.
His film work includes The X Men.
John Matuszak as Sloth
Who can forget Chunk's buddy Sloth, who he found chained to a chair in a dark basement.
Before appearing on The Goonies, John was an American football star.
He sadly died not long after the film was released and passed away in 1989.
Other characters that appeared included:
