Guess Who Monday is a weekly feature here at nerdbastards where we challenge you to guess the latest known or lesser known child star of nerd pop culture from the days of yore (70’s, 80’s, 90’s), who have all grown up. Lets take a gentleman’s bet and see if you can figure out today’s ‘Guess Who’. Warning: we are not responsible for any shocked, appalled or arousing feelings which may incur.
Who is this strapping young lad? Who WAS he? English born, the cheeky fucker was in one of our most beloved fantasy movies of ALL time, but has fallen into a strange profession since he got ” All Growed Up”.
“Jump magic! Jump Magic! Jump!!” Toby from Labyrinth, is Toby Froud. David Bowie’s kidnapping victim who was babysat by Goblin’s for the majority of the titular title. Toby isn’t acting really anymore these days, recently, he’s been working as a stilt-walker and dancing bear with a troupe that performs throughout England…Really? I mean, I don’t have any words to say to that. He’s also a puppet maker and working up some short films with his homemade hand socks. Hopefully, he gets Bowie back on board as Jareth, and we’ll be cookin’. He’s also apparently turned into a cute and dreamy, mid 20 something guy with some badass street cred.
“Hey, you that kid from the Labyrinth?!!”
“Yeah…That was me.”
Toby Froud, we speak your name.
