#2 Barret Oliver
How could anyone ever forget the brilliant alliterative wonder that is Bastian Balthazar Bux? If that mouthful of a name rings a bell, that’s because it’s the name of the charming lead character in the whimsical world of The NeverEnding Story. Barret Oliver was the perfect actor to take on the role of this kind-hearted child, and even if he decided to step away from the front of the camera when he grew up, we’re glad that he found a blossoming career behind the camera instead!
The former child actor is now a talented adult who teaches photography and even penned a book that shines a light on the photo process of the 19th century, titled A History of the Woodburytype.
