What The Cast Of E.T. Looks Like Today
More than 30 years after its release, Steven Spielberg's classic E.T. captures the imagination of new fans around the world — and remains one of the most beloved films of all time. Let's take a look back at some of the talented cast members who helped make it such a success and find out what they're up to today.
Henry Thomas' role as Elliott in E.T. launched him to stardom practically overnight. While still a child actor, Thomas starred in a number of other movies, including the 1984 adventure film Cloak and Dagger with Dabney Coleman. Thomas made a successful transition to adult roles in the early 1990s, and has appeared in dozens of films and television shows since then — including Fire in the Sky, Legends of the Fall, Gangs of New York, and Without a Trace.
In addition to his acting talents, Thomas is also a musician. One of his songs was even used for the soundtrack of 1997's Niagara, Niagara — in which he also starred. In 2017, Thomas appeared in Netflix's adaptation of Gerald's Game, and in a recurring role on the FX comedy-drama Better Things. Other roles include the Netflix horror series The Haunting of Hill House as well as a pair of projects with director Mike Flanagan: The Netflix series Midnight Mass and The Shining sequel Doctor Sleep, in which Thomas appeared as the spirit of Jack Torrance.
Like many girls her age, Elliott's little sister Gertie — portrayed by Drew Barrymore — enjoys playing pretend with her dolls and watching Sesame Street, but she isn't your typical five-year-old. Quick-witted and sarcastic, Gertie calls her mother "Mary" and can tell when her brothers are lying to each other. Gertie helps with chores around the house, and her mother even trusts her to stay home alone for short periods.
