eddie1 Upcoming Child Stars - Thoughts? (11) RE: Upcoming Child Stars - Thoughts? 05 Dec 09

Two "Child Stars" in the UK way back when were Helen Shapiro
and Lena Zavaroni

As you can see, Helen, with a deep voice way beyond her years, coped well with showbiz Helen singing
and is still belting them out although nowadays she does mostly gospel.

Lena, on the other hand, did not cope well with growing up - maybe as a result of demands forced on her by management - developed anorexia and depression and died at a very young 35. I always found the fact that even when fifteen or so, she always appeared in a lacy dress with hair ribbons, button shoes etc, Lena singing
just a tad sick.

I hope this young lady can follow Helen's example.
