Then + Now: Jenny Lewis from ‘The Wizard’
We loved adorable child actress Jenny Lewis in stuff like ‘The Wizard’ with fellow child actor Fred Savage, but what’s Miss Lewis been up to since the early ’90s?
In the late ’80s and early ’90s, and you could find Jenny Lewis all over the place. She starred in films like ‘The Wizard,’ ‘Troop Beverly Hills,’ ‘Big Girls Don’t Cry… They Get Even,’ and ‘Foxfire.’ Lewis also made guest appearances on several TV shows, including ‘The Golden Girls,’ ‘The Twilight Zone,’ ‘Mr. Belvedere,’ ‘Growing Pains,’ and ‘Roseanne’ — just to name a few.
But you probably remember her best in the 1989 video game adventure film ‘The Wizard,’ in which she appeared with ‘The Wonder Years’ star Fred Savage.
Lewis grew up and got into music, starting the band Rilo Kiley with a few friends and her then-boyfriend Blake Sennett — another former child star whom you might remember from the Nickelodeon show ‘Salute Your Shorts.’ The group formed in 1998 and released five albums before disbanding in 2011.
Lewis went on to other projects, including an album with the Watson Twins, a solo record, and a duet project released under the name Jenny & Johnny.
