The 2017 remake of It not only shook the world of horror flicks but also built fresh careers for a few relative newcomers. Directed by Andy Muschietti, who previously worked on The Flash and The Howling, It is a retelling of the classic Stephen King novel of the same name, adapted into a miniseries in 1990. The movie was widely celebrated by critics and audiences alike during its release, and one of the key factors that contributed to its success was its perfectly assembled cast, consisting primarily of fresh-faced actors. So, what has the cast of It been up to since their appearance in the movie? Let’s find out.

After his successful performance in It, Martell snagged roles in high-profile films like The Lodge, Low Tide, The True Adventures of Wolfboy, and Knives Out.
