It’s been more than 25 years since the black comedy Heathers debuted. In the late 1980s, the movie took the lighthearted themes of John Hughes' movies and looked at the topic of high school popularity through the darkest of lenses, turning teenage suicide into it’s own popularity contest. The movie has remained popular to this day, not only because of the rock-solid performances of its two leads, who went on to become stars in their own right, but also because of the strong supporting performances of the rest of the people who made Westerberg High seriously the most terrible high school ever. Let's catch up with the cast of this dark classic, to see what happened to them after Heathers:

Winona Ryder
Winona Ryder was the female lead in Heathers, playing the "desperate to fit in until she wasn’t" character, Veronica. Heathers wasn’t quite the actresses first film, but it was close. Her first movie had been 1986’s comedy/drama Lucas. Ryder then went on to play the role of the goth daughter Lydia in Beetlejuice just a year before Heathers was released. She went on to have a stellar career in the '90s, which included Best Actress Oscar nominations in back-to-back years for 1994’s The Age of Innocence and 1995’s Little Women. She’s been less front and center in recent years, but she’s still had major parts as Spock’s mother in J.J. Abrams first Star Trek film, as well as the role of The Dying Swan in Black Swan. She’ll next be seen in Netflix’s new series Stranger Things.
