Best 80s Actors and Actresses
The 80s was a time of neon, mohawks, and Nintendo. The age of MTV, Goonies, and DnD! How many of us still live in the 80s? Collecting toys and albums that we loved in the 80s. Even pop culture has either borrowed or outright brought back 80s trends. Some of our most popular shows, like Stranger Things, are based on this idea!
But the 80s had another great thing, Movies. So many directors today were influenced by the young directors, actors, and actresses of the 80s. Steven Spielberg with all of his great 80s movies like Jaws, ET, and all of the Indiana Jones movies.
And what the Sci-Fi world would be without George Lucas and Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi! Or John Hughes and the ageless wonders of Uncle Buck, The Breakfast Club, and Ferris Buellers Day Off!
But we’re not here to talk about all those great movies (which I could do for days). We’re here to discuss who were some of the best Actors and Actresses of the 80s. Actors like Tom Cruise, Harrison Ford, Molly Ringwald, and Goldie Hawn! But there are so many great ones! Let’s talk about a few.
And if you love the 70s, we have an article on great actors and actresses of the 70s also!
