Completely different people? How the stars of the movie "Die Hard" have changed 35 years later. Photo then and now
The 1988 action movie "Die Hard" went down in history not only because of the interesting plot and dynamic scenes, but also because of the talented play of the actors. The main characters were remembered for their striking images and were given a chance to continue their successful careers.
Some of them still remain popular actors, while others haven't played significant roles in a long time. OBOZREVATEL decided to recall how the stars looked then and how they turned out (to see the photos, scroll to the bottom of the page).
The main character of the film - John McClane - played by Bruce Willis became a very important role for the star, and the nickname "tough nut" stuck to him for many years. A lot of good things happened in the star's life after the film - a successful career, many children and even a warm relationship with his ex-wife, the actor managed to keep. However, in the spring of 2022, he was diagnosed with aphasia - speech disorder, resulting from local lesions of the cerebral cortex. Willis had to end a career in cinema. At 68 years he began to lose his memory.
In the action movie, he played the head of the gang Hans Gruber, recognized as one of the best antagonists in the world of cinema. Rickman became an audience favorite and distinguished himself with many more successful roles, including Severus Snape in Harry Potter. In 2016, Rickman died due to cancer before his 70th birthday.
The beautiful Holly McClain, played by Bedelia, was the wife of the main character. Producers noticed the talent of the actress and invited her to play in many other films and TV series. By the way, her nephew, Macaulay Culkin, starred in the cult films "Home Alone" and "Home Alone 2", so acting is their family trait.
The funny image of Harry Ellis in "Die Hard" was remembered by many viewers. Like other action stars, Boeckner continued his film career, but later decided to try his hand as a screenwriter and producer.
