Many remember Sean Frye as the rambunctious Steve in the 1982 film E.T. The 16 year old had already learned the ropes with roles in Fun with Dick and Jane and on Little House on the Prairie, and he would go on to appear in For Keeps and Real Genius. Frye didn't stick with movies, however, and retired from Hollywood in the '90s to pursue a career in social work.
