Then: Basco’s first role was in the Michael Jackson anthology film ‘Moonwalker.’ Three years later, the then-15-year-old scored his most famous role to date in ‘Hook’ as Rufio, the leader of the Lost Boys.

Now: Basco has worked pretty regularly since doing ‘Hook,’ with appearances on TV shows like ‘Nash Bridges,’ ‘CSI Miami and ‘Prime Suspect.’ He’s also had success as a voice actor, providing the vocals for Prince Zuko on the Nickelodeon Show ‘Avatar: The Last Airbender’ and General Iroh on ‘The Legend of Korra.’ You can follow the “One-Time Leader of the Lost Boys & the prince of Fire Nation” on Twitter and check out his Tumblr.
