Three of the seven juvenile actors who play the Hook children - Margaret Leclere (Elsa), Pamela Franklin (Diana), and Phoebe Nicholls (Gerty) - went on to further success and developed enduring film and TV careers as adults. Mark Lester also had later successes, most famously in the title role in "Oliver!" (1969); he gave up acting in the early 1980s and became an osteopath, but returned to film after more than 30 years to play the role of King Harold in "1066" (2015). See more
