Take On Me A-ha
Find out what Molly Ringwald, Judd Nelson, Ally Sheedy, Anthony Michael Hall and Emilio Estevez got up to after 'The Breakfast Club'.
Probably one of the most famous faces from 'The Breakfast Club', Emilio Estevez went on to star in 'St Elmo's Fire', 'Young Guns' and 'Mighty Ducks' as part of the '80s Brat Pack. Since then he's moved behind the camera writing and directing 'Bobby' in 2006 and directing his father, Martin Sheen in 'The Way' in 2010. Work on his exciting new movie, 'Johnny Longshot' has begun.
After the success of 'The Breakfast Club', Molly Ringwald was offered the female lead in both 'Pretty Woman' and 'Ghost' but turned them down. In the mid-90s the fluent French-speaking actress moved to Paris and starred in a number of French films before returning to the US to take to the stage. She recently starred on ABC's 'The Secret Life Of The American Teenager' and has a début Jazz out now, as well as a book of short stories called 'When It Happens to You'.
Judd Nelson joined Emilio Estevez in 'St Elmo's Fire' after 'The Breakfast Club', and also starred in 'Airheads' and 'Jay And Silent Bob Strike Back'. The actor tried his hand at voice acting in 'The Transformers: The Movie' and starred in TV show 'Suddenly Susan' with Brooke Shields for four years in the '90s. Currently he has five movies in post-production, the first of which is 'This Is Happening' which hit cinemas last year.
In the same year as 'The Breakfast Club', Anthony Michael Hall starred in 'Weird Science' and became the youngest ever cast member of 'SNL'. He turned down roles in 'Ferris Bueller's Day Off' and 'Pretty In Pink' to avoid being typecast, before starring in 'Edward Scissorhands' and 'Six Degrees Of Separation'. 1994 saw him star in and direct his first feature film, before playing Bill Gates in 'Pirates Of Silicon Valley'. He's since been in 'The Dead Zone', 'The Dark Knight' and 'Foxcatcher'.
Ally Sheedy also starred in 'St. Elmo's Fire' before moving on to 'Short Circuit' and 'High Art' but was treated for a sleeping pill addiction in the '90s. In 1999 she took over the lead role in the off Broadway production of 'Hedwig And The Angry Inch' but her run ended early due to bad reviews. In 2003 she made special guest appearances in 'The Dead Zone', 'C.S.I.', 'Kyle XY' and 'Psych', while last year saw her take on roles in 'Sins Of Our Youth', 'Client Seduction' and 'Fugly!'.
