Children with famous parents also need a big break. For Sean Astin this pause was The Goonies . Astin, son of well-known actors Patty Duke and John Astin, had only made two small television films before taking the lead in the film produced by Steven Spielberg . From then on, he immediately became a star and forged a career full of more iconic roles than that most people could ever dream of.
However, all of this had to start somewhere. And recently Astin showed the fans exactly where that was. The actor went to his Instagram to reveal an eight-minute audition he did at the age of 13 for The Goonies . He plays a scene that was changed in the last film and explains why he and his friends should look for the “rich stuff”. It's a very cute scene that Astin tries several times when someone (we think director Richard Donner ) gives him different directions.
Check out the YouTube version below. You can also view it on Astin's own Instagram .
When you watch the audition, you can clearly see Astin's talent and charisma. He is charming, he is believable, you want to follow him on an adventure. From Goonies to Toy Soldiers to Rudy to Lord of the Rings to 50 first dates and  Stranger Things it has been nice to follow Astin's career so far and we are always excited to see what he does next.
