You may remember Danny Lloyd as Danny Torrence from “The Shining.” Well, in my quest to find out what happened to this former child star and still horror icon, I found remarkably little. According to his IMDb page, he did one other movie two years later called “Will: The Autobiography of G. Gordan Liddy” that was made for TV. After that, he dropped off the proverbial map.
So what has little Mr. Redrum been up to these days? Well, according to Wikipedia, after “The Shining,” he decided that he was tired of all the hulabalu and his family peaced out to the mid-west, where he had a fairly normal, well-adjusted upbringing. No fun… I know. I don’t have any nudes I can show you, or crazy pics of him bingeing like he’s trying to out-snort Lindsey Lohan or out-smoke Miley Cyrus. That is good though. I don’t want to see that these kids that were in King movies became epic piles of fail! However, if they could get hammered and run over a hooker now and again, that would make these articles much more entertaining. Take note current child stars.
He became a science teacher in his all growed up years, and in 2007, became a professor of biology at a community college in Elizabethtown, Kentucky! Good for him! He made an appearance at the Fright Night Film Fest in 2009 to sign autographs to benefit the Make-A-Wish foundation. Way to be man! He has since gone back to his normal and has no plans to make more appearances in the future. Here’s a little video from that film fest of him signing autographs.
