'E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial' Then & Now

23 of 24

THEN & NOW: Sean Frye

Role: Steve

Then: Sean Frye caught the acting bug from his half-sister, “Punky Brewster” star Soleil Moon Frye. After playing Billy in the 1977 flick “Fun with Dick and Jane,” Sean nabbed the role of Steve, Elliott’s older brother’s friend, in “E.T.”

Now: Sadly, his career in Hollywood quickly fizzled. Frye's last major role was in 1988’s “For Keeps?,” alongside Molly Ringwald. He met his partner, army veteran Michael Alexander, in West Hollywood. The pair adopted a son in 2003. —XFINITY Entertainment Staff (Photo: Universal Studios)
