I know that, I was just trying to figure out who was the biggest child star of today.
Thing is, whoever it is compares to Shirley only if her fame translates into adulthood as well. That's why I went with Drew.
My mom LOVES Shirley Temple. She has a collection of porcelain dolls from the 80s and 90s that she bought and still has in a display case.
As far as starring in a multitude of movies as a child and leaving a legacy that lasts for decades, I don't think there is a modern version of that. The Olsen twins may have come the closest, but they're really only known for starring in a long-running sitcom from the time they were infants and making, what seemed like, an infinite amount of direct to video movies. Will they be remembered 40-50 years from now? Probably not.
Yeah, it's doubtful for sure. She had a unique situation and I think her career came along at the right time. She was a gifted young actress with a lot of devotion, though I'm sure her parents had a lot to do with it. And the interesting thing is, she's not just looked at as a good child actress, but a good actress in general, and I think that's part of the appeal and why she'll be remembered for some time.
May she rest in peace. She lived a long, fulfilling life.
Rest in Peace, Shirley
