    Sad, but even more sad is I didn’t know most of these actors. A lot of them
    died before I was even born.

    Make no mistake, there is a lot of sexual abuse in the entertainment
    industry. It explains why we hear so much about “child actors gone wrong”
    and how they become extremely self-destructive, and frequently use drugs
    and alcohol in order to numb their pain. Some did not survive, because they
    couldn’t overcome the guilt, shame and self-loathing over something that
    wasn’t even their fault!

    Gary Coleman was pretty old for a midget, usually midget’s don’t last that
    long.

    Lucille Rickson’s story was truly tragic because her mother died while
    tending to her-The family lost two people at the same time

    Life time has a documentary show called “ghost inside my child” and in one
    episode, a girl claimed 2 be the reincarnation of Lucille Ricksen, who not
    died of tuberculosis, but ad an abortion and died sometime after the risky
    procedure. Also, se said she was pushed into show business and did not have
    a voice 4 herself.

    Seems like most of the best actors and celebrities and musicians don’t live
    very long. What’s-up with that? They either get shot, get cancer,
    over-dose, in a vehicle/plane accident, commit suicide, a disease, and
    etc.. They are lucky, if they make it to their 50’s.

    child actors dying young in their 30s and 40s, I don’t think so.

      +danalope67 for a child star anything below 21 when they become an adult is
      a problem. Some of these were adults

      +Laura Metheny I tried to express much the same thoughts. It has been a
      couple of days or so. I keep having trouble with everything I type
      disappearing. I remembered a large plaque on the wall in a school, (I
      believe) about everything this man needed he learned in kindergarten. I
      thought maybe it would be good, so, I started typing. It was longer than I
      expected. After like sixteen points, then, everything disappeared; the
      whole comment section disappeared. So, I gave up!
      But, my main thing was people are so rude. They don’t have to
      agree with you, but, they don’t have to be insulting just because they
      don’t agree with us.

      I suspect sexual abuse in the cases of Scotty Beckett (especially) and Carl
      “Alfalfa” Switzer. Their self-destructive behavior speaks for itself.

      And here’s another interesting “connection”. Gus Meins, who directed
      several of the “Our Gang” comedies of the 1930s, was later brought up on a
      “morals charge” in 1940 for sexually abusing young boys. He committed
      suicide before the case could be brought to trial, and opinions are still
      very divided as to whether he was guilty or not (and we’ll never know for
      sure), but sexual abuse in Hollywood is definitely not new.

    You didn’t mention Heather ‘O’ Rourke from the “Poltergiest” movies.

    • Margie Carol
      December 23, 2015 at 9:23 PM

      +Derek Roberts Oh, yeah, she had birth defect with her stomach or something
      like that. She shocked everyone when she died. Since I typed this I did
      research. Her mom sued and said there was a misdiagnosis of Crohn’s
      Disease. So, I guess I was right. She had a problem with her intestine no
      one knew about. But, there was not proper treatment for it. I guess septic
      condition was caused by it and affected everything, causing swelling in her
      extremities, turning her fingers blue. And, heart attack.
