Go go Power Rangers!
Her name might be Amy Jo Johnson, but she'll always be the Pink Power Ranger to us.
The actress was catapulted to fame in 1993 thanks to her role as Kimberly Hart in the TV series Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.
(You've got the theme song in your head now, don't you?)
It was a dream role for a budding actress, but it didn't exactly bring in the big bucks.
In an interview with NPS, Johnson recalled being paid "tops $600 a week" for two episodes, and said she and her castmates received no royalties when re-runs aired ®C something that changed when the show became unionised.?
"We weren't hugely compensated, and it became so popular that °≠that's what gave me nightmares. It was sort of overwhelming °≠ like, 'if that show stopped tomorrow I'm going to have to go down the street and become a waitress again'," she said.
Johnson was also "frightened" by some of the behaviour exhibited by adult fans of the show, which she departed in 1995.
"There were a few certain instances during the '90s°≠ that were very dangerous, and [they] were sort of stalking a little bit."
Johnson picked up numerous on-screen credits after hanging up her Power Rangers outfit, but her next major role came in 1998 with the wildly popular college drama Felicity.
The actress was cast as Julie, the best friend of titular character Felicity Porter, played by Keri Russell.
Julie was popular among viewers, but Johnson made the tough choice to leave the show in its third season following the death of her mother.
"She got sick when we were doing the pilot and then that summer when we were filming she passed away," she told Page Six.?
"It was just sort of this, like, rollercoaster ride for me emotionally for two years. I think I just needed to go fall apart somewhere."
Fortunately, Johnson was able to make a guest appearance in Felicity's fourth and final season.
After Felicity finished in 2002, Johnson appeared in various movies and TV shows, including Spin City and ER.
She landed another major TV role in 2008 with Flashpoint, a Canadian police procedural drama, playing Constable Jules Callaghan.
The show aired until 2012.
Acting isn't Johnson's only talent; she's also a singer-songwriter with three albums to her name, the most recent released in 2013.
These days, Johnson's focus has shifted behind the camera.
She has directed and produced two short films, Bent and Lines, and the feature films The Space Between and Tammy's Always Dying.
In 2022, she directed an episode of TV series Superman & Lois.
A young Tatum O'Neal was on the fast track - to this day, she remains the youngest Oscar winner in history after being awarded the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress in 1974, for her debut role starring alongside her father, Ryan O'Neal, in Paper Moon (1973).?
But that career high remained just that - a high - with her life troubled by addiction issues and poor family relationships to this day.
Though they starred together in Paper Moon, Tatum did not share a good relationship with her father for most of her life. From a young age, he and her mother, actress Joanna Moore, exposed? the young girl to the dark side of Hollywood, who even admitted to beginning use of cocaine at age 15.
Though she tried to maintain the momentum of her Oscar win, starring in The Bad News Bears (1976), International Velvet (1978), Little Darlings (1980), and more, by the mid '80s, roles for her dried up and she turned to more drug use to cope with her failing career.
In the meantime she had met tennis player John McEnroe, marrying him in 1986 and having three children with him, Kevin, Sean and Emily. However, the pair were ultimately incompatible, separating in 1992 and divorcing in 1994. Following the divorce, O'Neal's drug problems came to a head and McEnroe was given custody of their children.?
This was just the wake-up call O'Neal needed and she worked hard at sobriety for the sake of her children, winning back partial custody of them and also finding her way back to Hollywood. She began the 2000s with a number of guest roles on shows such as Sex and the City (2003), 8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter (2004), and Law & Order: Criminal Intent (2004), before gaining some stability with a permanent role in the firehouse drama Rescue Me (2005).?
She continued on to more roles in Wicked Wicked Games (2006), The Runaways (2010), God's Not Dead: A Light in Darkness (2018), with her latest role in 2021 being Not to Forget.
In 2011, she got the chance to face one of her biggest traumas head-on - her damaged relationship with her father. Oprah Winfrey helped the father and daughter reconcile in a documentary series titled Ryan and Tatum: The O'Neals. Though they didn't do so immediately, they now regularly appear at events together and post pictures on social media together.
Tatum admits to her drug problems, but one near-fatal turn in 2020 made her come to her senses.?
"I was an addict my whole life," she told People recently, "[It's been] pretty much on and off, for the past 30 to 40 years."
In May of 2020, the Oscar winner overdosed and "almost died" after suffering a severe stroke and cardiac arrest, before being induced into a six-week coma. After she woke from it, she could no longer speak or communicate. She had to re-learn how to read and write, with her memory and vocabulary, though regained, still impaired.
For her children, this incident was one "we'd always been waiting for°≠There were times we didn't think she was going to survive," her son Kevin, now 37, told People.?
Three years on from the ordeal, he says his mother is trying hard to recover.?
"This last chapter where she wants to live, wants to get sober, wants to learn, I think it's a miracle. I think it's beautiful,
"I've never been more proud to be her son. She's full of love and full of heart."?
The actress reiterated her son's hope: "I've been trying to get sober my whole life," she said, "Every day, I am trying."

We know him now as the little Hobbit frolicking around Hobbiton, but he was just a little boy with big dreams - dreams that were crushed by one very blunt director.?
A nine year old Elijah Wood was trying to make it as a child actor in Hollywood, auditioning for a part as a kid in The Kindergarten Cop, when he was told what no actor - at any age - wants to hear.?
Director Ivan Reitman had told Wood at the time that his performance was not believable, which Wood later said was "a harsh thing to say to a nine-year-old."?
He eventually made it into films, starting with Avalon (1990), Forever Young (1992),?The Adventures of Huck Finn (1993), The Good Son (1993), and many more.
He caught his biggest break at age 20 in the Lord of the Rings films, gaining top billing alongside big actors like Ian McKellan, Orlando Bloom, and Cate Blanchett. The trilogy has since become one of the most fantasy film series of all time and has become what is known as Wood's magnum opus.
Following the success of the fantasy series, he tried to graduate to more mature roles, in projects such as Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004), Sin City (2005), and even some children's media like Happy Feet (2006) and Spyro (2006).
Nowadays he is known for his quirkier works, such as I Don't Feel at Home in This World Anymore (2017), Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency (2016-2017), and more. His latest most renowned work is the thriller Yellowjackets (2023).?
He has since also settled down with his partner,?Danish film producer Mette-Marie Kongsved, becoming a dad of two to a four year old son and a one year old daughter.
Now, Wood's biggest contribution to pop culture has had its time, coming full circle to be rebooted - much to his surprise.??
"I don't know why I'm surprised because, of course there would be more movies," he told GQ magazine.
Wood acknowledged that while there is a commercial aspect to films that can often overpower the intended message, he insists the iconic trilogy he was a part of was made with heart.
"It came out of a passion for these books and wanting to see them realised," Wood said.?
"And I hope that that is ultimately what will drive everything forward with whatever these subsequent movies are. I just hope that it's the same motivating factor at its core, whenever they hire a screenwriter and a filmmaker°™that it is with reverence for Tolkien's material and enthusiasm to explore it."
It's very unlikely you won't remember this face.
Tami Erin rose to fame in the 1980s, playing the title role of Pippi Longstocking in The New Adventures of Pippi Longstocking in 1988.
It wasn't an easy plight to become the face of the '80s hit film.
Erin was amongst 8000 girls who auditioned for the role.
"I've never seen anyone who radiates sunshine like she does," said writer-director Ken Annakin in a 1986 interview.
"Her eyes sparkle, and when she smiles, everybody feels happy."
After being chosen for the role, Erin played a titular, precocious nine-year-old who is left stranded with her horse and monkey after her father's ship is carried off by a sudden storm.
The trio take up residence in an old family home, which is thought by neighbourhood children to be haunted.
Two more children befriend ?the crew, and get into various adventures together.
After her gig in the 1988 classic, it was 10 years before Erin starred in her next film, 1998 blockbuster Kill You Twice.
In 2005 she featured as a flower girl in a short film titled The Little Rose and in 2007, she played the role of LG-22 in the film AGENTS.
While acting, Erin ?was appointed a United Nations Ambassador for UNICEF and during her tenure went on to visit over 100 countries.
The star's acting career slowed down after 2012 but ?she didn't shy away from finding other ways to rake in income.
Erin is also currently offering personalised messages through Cameo.
Her packages include a message for $15, a personalised video for $110, a live video call for $435, and a business video for $768.
Most recently, the former child star celebrated her 49th birthday with a surprise RnB star.
Erin took to Instagram posted herself and her husband Tommy Parker backstage at a Vanilla Ice concert.
The duo wed in ?2020 but they are yet to have children. The pair have lived together ever since.
I?f you're like us (and our mums), you can't think of the movie Beaches without crying.
Once you've wiped the tears and composed yourself, ?however, we'd like you to focus on the two child stars who almost stole the show from their more famous older on-screeen counterparts.
Mayim Bialik and Marcie Leeds played the younger versions, respectively, of Barbara Hersey and Bette Midler's characters Hillary and Cecelia, or 'CC'.
Just 13 at the time, the young actresses well and truly capturing the spirit of the two Hollywood icons.
Their unforgettable ?early scenes in the 1988 movie set the characters' years-long friendship in motion.
While smoking under the boardwalk in Atlantic City, CC spots Hillary wandering lost on the beach, unable to find the hotel she's staying in with her family ®C and a friendship is born.
So, what became of Bialik and Leeds after their star-making appearance in Beaches?
Let's start with Mayim Bialik.
Even if her name doesn't ring a bell, you've likely seen the actress on your TV screen in the years since Beaches, the movie having smoothed her path into stardom.
In the late '80s and early '90s, she appeared in several iconic programs, including Webster, MacGyver, Doogie Houser MD and Murphy Brown.?
However, it was in 1991, three years after Beaches was released, that Bialik embarked on one of her most memorable roles ®C as the titular character in sitcom Blossom. She's pictured here in character with co-star Joey Lawrence.
The role (not to mention those floral hats) made her a household name and a '90s TV icon.
Bialik continued racking up TV credits (and a few movie ones) after Blossom wrapped in 1995.
She voiced characters in numerous popular animated series, including Recess, ?Hey Arnold! and Aaahh!!! Real Monsters, had a starring role in The Secret Life of the American Teenager, and appeared in episodes of 7th Heaven, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Bones and many other shows.
However, it was The Big Bang Theory that re-established Bialik as a small-screen star.?
The actress landed a guest role as neuroscientist Amy Farrah Fowler in season 3, and was then promoted to series regular the following year, playing the role from 2010 to 2019.
