The 1996 family comedy Matilda is easily one of the most loved movies of the '90s. Based on the book of the same name by Roald Dahl, it features a young cast—many of the actors from Matilda are relatively unknown to the general public.

The film follows the trials of a child genius and her attempts to overcome the mistreatment and abuse she suffers at the hands of her parents and teachers. Few of the children who star in the film went on to have careers in Hollywood, so their lives remain a mystery to the general public. Some have gone into writing, and others into medical fields like dentistry. It’s natural to wonder where the kids from Matilda are today and what the more established stars like Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman have gone on to do since. If you've ever wondered what the Matilda cast looks like today, you'll be surprised.
