Kerri Green

Auburn haired Kerri Green was born in Fort Lee, New Jersey, USA on 14 January 1967. In 1984, Kerri decided to skip summer camp and attend some movie auditions in New York City instead. This led her to the attention of none other than Steven Spielberg, who cast her as Andy in Richard Donner's adventure movie The Goonies (1985), which was one of the biggest hits of 1985. Also that year, she played one of John Candy's three children in the movie Summer Rental (1985).

However, she gave her most accomplished performance in David Seltzer's Lucas (1986) - Corey Haim was the title character, a bespectacled, intelligent and unpopular 14-year-old misfit, who befriends 16-year-old Maggie, played brilliantly by Kerri, who Lucas soon falls in love with. However, Maggie has fallen for handsome football hero Cappie (Charlie Sheen), which breaks Lucas' heart. A heartwarming, realistic and enjoyable teen movie, Lucas also featured Ally McBeal star Courtney Thorne-Smith and, making her film debut, Winona Ryder. Kerri was reunited with Charlie Sheen for 1987's road movie Three for the Road (1987), in which she played Robin, the rebellious daughter of a ruthless senator. Following the release of that movie, Kerri decided to quit acting and studied art at Vassar College. Audiences didn't see her again until the TV movie Blue Flame (1993). She received critical acclaim for her direction of the film Bellyfruit (1999). Her marriage in the 90s has led to her now being credited as "Kerri Lee Green" and she now only pops up now and then on television - most notably in an episode of "ER" as a mother of several children, who tearfully wants to terminate her latest pregnancy.

Rotten Tomatoes: Movies

Actress Kerri Green was still in her teens when she was cast as Andy in Richard Donner's 1985 hit adventure comedy "The Goonies." Written by Chris Columbus from a story by Steven Spielberg, the film follows a group of friends who find a treasure map and set off on a quest to find the lost pirate fortune. Green co-starred with fellow young actors Sean Astin, Corey Feldman, and Josh Brolin. The same year, she starred alongside John Candy in Carl Reiner's comedy "Summer Rental." In 1986, she appeared in the love-triangle comedy "Lucas," in which she played the girl with whom both Corey Haim and Charlie Sheen fall in love. This film earned her a Young Artist Award nomination. Green again starred opposite Sheen in the comedy-drama "Three for the Road" in 1987. Throughout the 1990s, Green appeared in small roles on television series, like the Paul Reiser and Helen Hunt sitcom "Mad About You," the comedy "Café Americain," and the popular CBS mystery "Murder, She Wrote." In 1999, she directed the drama "Bellyfruit," an adaptation of a stage play she also co-wrote about the harsh realities teens face in the modern world. After appearances on "ER" and "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," Green starred in the 2010 drama "Complacent," written and directed by Steven R. Munroe. (Source: www.rottentomatoes.com)
