|Aileen Quinn||Annie||Besides having singing parts as the title character in the 1982 musical, she also later fronted a rockabilly band named "The Leapin' Lizards", after her character's signature catchphrase. - Sally Shine|
|Phil Collins||Chitty Chitty Bang Bang||Before becoming famous as the lead singer of Genesis, growing up in England Phil Collins was a child performer doing some theatre as well appearing in some movies and TV shows. I just heard recently he played one of the banished children in the village of the fictional country of Vulgaria in the 1968 movie Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. But the scene(s) he was in were edited out of the final cut of the movie. So maybe that shouldn't count but I still think it's interesting. - Edward|
