Winona Ryder (Veronica Sawyer) currently stars on Stranger Things.

Ryder has starred in more than 60 films to date, including Black Swan and The Iceman. Weirdly, she's also starred in music video projects for both The Killers and Jon Spencer Blues Explosion. She ALSO made a lot of faces when Stranger Things won an Emmy this year, and became a meme for a second.

Shannon Doherty (Heather Duke) went on to star in Beverly Hills: 90210 and Charmed.

In 2015, Doherty was diagnosed with breast cancer. Her cancer has since been declared in remission and Doherty has been filming scenes for the new Heathers reboot, which will air on the Paramount Network in 2018.


Lisanne Falk (Heather McNamara) stopped acting in the late '90s.

Christian Slater (J.D.) was dating Kim Walker at the time of filming.

Slater wasn't the only famous name up for the role — apparently Brad Pitt also auditioned but was deemed "too nice." These days, you can find him on Mr. Robot as a —SPOILERS — ghost dad.

Before playing dumb jock Ram Sweeney in Heathers, Patrick Labyorteaux was a child actor on Little House on the Prarie.

More recently, he starred in the Nick At Nite series See Dad Run, alongside fellow '80s veteran Scott Baio. He's also done voice work for the Ice Age movie series.

He popped back up in 2015 in a documentary about the making of Night of the Demons, a film he made in 1988.

Carrie Lynn (Martha "Dumptruck" Dunnstock) was only ever in two other films.

Renée Estevez (Betty Finn) is actually the half sister of Emilio Estevez and Charlie Sheen, and the daughter of Martin Sheen.

Estevez has worked steadily in TV and film since the '80s, and appeared on several seasons of The West Wing as Nancy. Most recently, she did voice work in an animated film called The Kustomonsters.
