John Franklin


Then: Isaac in Children of the Corn (1984)


Now: Franklin was 25 yrs old when he played the role of Isaac in Children of the Corn. He was diagnosed with GHD as a child, and is the reason for his short stature. He was signed to an acting contract at the age of 23 because he looked like he was 12 years old. The disease not only makes him short, but it makes him appear younger and his voice a little higher than most males. He continued with the horror theme, providing the voice for Walkabout Chucky in Child’s Play (1988), and playing Cousin It in the Adams Family movies in 1991 and 1993. He retired from acting in 2003 and went into teaching and creative writing.
