Being snowed in has made me think of that movie “The Shining” that came out in 1980. This made me curious about the lives of the three main actors. So I delved into it a a bit.
Did You Know:
The snow in the infamous maze was actually 900 tons of salt and crushed Styrofoam.
In 1970, while filming Five Easy Pieces, he met and dated his co star Susan Anspach. She claims that the son she had that same year was his son, but Jack has always denied this.
From 1973 to 1989, he had an on again off again relationship with Anjelica Huston, daughter of famous actor and director John Huston.
Jack has five children, the eldest being Jennifer Nicholson. The second is Caleb Goddard, followed by Honey Hollman, Lorraine Nicholson and Ray Nicholson.
He has two grandchildren, Duke and Sean Norfleet.
Nicholson has stated that children “give your life a resonance that it can’t have without them … As a father, I’m there all the time. I give unconditional love.”
He will celebrate his 84th birthday in April.
Shelley was married to her first and only spouse, Bernard Sampson, from 1970 to 1974.
Duvall focused on her Hollywood career, but she eventually was led into the arms of musician Paul Simon. She also dated Ringo Starr before finding love with Dan Gilroy.
Though Shelley has since left the spotlight she is still romantically involved with Dan, her companion of more than 30 years. She never had children.
According to several sources, by the time she’d officially stepped away from acting in 2002, Duvall had relocated to a ranch in the small town of Blanco, Texas. There she acquired a sizable collection of exotic animals.
Shelley Duvall has unfortunately struggled with mental illness much of her life. She is 71.
Danny Torrance was Danny Lloyd’s first-ever film role, and he was cast primarily due to his ability to concentrate for long periods.
After “The Shining”, Lloyd’s second and final film role came in the NBC TV movie “Will: G. Gordon Liddy.” It was a biopic of the Watergate co-conspirator. Lloyd played Liddy as a child.
Following that role, Lloyd did continue to audition for parts, but didn’t meet with any real success. By his early teens, Lloyd told his parents he was done with acting, and they supported his decision.
As an adult, Lloyd now works as a biology professor at a university in Kentucky, and is happily married with four children.
He is 48.
