20 People You Wanted To Be If You Were Born In The 80s
Growing up, I bet there’s at least one person on the list below that you wanted to be – but only if you were born in the 80s.
- Tom hanks in Big – but there’s no way you’d do something as boring as getting a job.
- The Fresh Prince of Bel Air – Will Smith was (and still is) the coolest person on TV.
- Any of the Goonies.
- Sarah from the film The Craft.
- Sabrina The Teenage Witch, especially if you get Salem the cat as a pet too – why was witchcraft so popular on TV back then?
- Any of the children from Narnia, particularly Susan or Peter – that’s the BBC version or the books, not the more-recent remake. Who didn’t want an adventure in a magical land, found through a wardrobe?
- The Pink Power Ranger (or maybe that was just me) and if you were male then you wanted to be the Green Power Ranger.
- Marty McFly from Back to the Future. Admit it, you’d still like to be him now.
- One of the band member from California Dreams, although looking back, I can’t remember any of their names.
- Sarah from Labyrinth. Even if you were a bit freaked out by David Bowie at the time.
- One of the sisters from Sweet Valley Twins/High. You would’ve liked to have been Jessica, the popular, fun-loving one, but actually you wouldn’t have minded being Elizabeth, as she was dating Todd Wilkins.
- Harmony from The Queens Nose. I remember wishing how much I had a magic 50p.
- One of the children that got to go on funhouse. That’s still a unfulfilled dream of mine.
- Kristy or Claudia from The Babysitters Club.
- Kelly or Zak from Saved By The Bell. And whichever one you wanted to be, you sooo wanted to date the other one.
- Clarissa from Clarissa Explains It All. Melissa Joan Hart was a kids’ TV legend. Would you believe it, she’s 38 now?
- One of the gladiators. If you were a girl it was Jet or Lightening. If you were a boy probably Hunter.
- Dorothy in the film Return To Oz.
- Charlene from Neighbours. Not only did she rock the dungarees look but she also married Jason Donavan.
- Matilda from Roald Dahl’s famous book. You could have had a lot of fun with her superpowers.
Who else should be on the list? Is there anyone you really wanted to be that should have made the cut?
