Uh, it’s John Travolta. He’s quite famous, y’know? He followed Carrie with Saturday Night Fever and Grease, and after a few ups and downs and a bit of Scientology is still going strong. He was in the first season of American Crime Story this year, along with western In a Valley of Violence and action flick I Am Wrath.

Nancy Allen went on to marry Carrie director Brian De Palma and appeared in his future films including Dressed to Kill and Blow Out (alongside Travolta). She also starred in all three original RoboCop films, which isn’t bad really. She’s retired from acting now and instead runs the weSPARK Cancer Support Center.

Betty Buckley is somehow managing to continue careers in theater, film, TV, and music, while apparently taking part in cutting horse competitions from her Texas ranch, whatever they are. She was the original Broadway Grizabella in Cats and is in the American Theater Hall of Fame, she’s released 16 albums, and she’s still got time to appear in M Night Shyamalan’s next film split. Not bad at all.

One of P.J. Soles’ earliest roles was as Norma Watson, a high school bully and friend of Chris Hargensen in ‘Carrie.’ That same year, Soles appeared with ‘Carrie’ co-star John Travolta in ‘The Boy in the Plastic Bubble.’ Soles went on to star in ‘Halloween’ and ‘Rock ‘n’ Roll High School.’ Her other film credits include ‘Private Benjamin,’ ‘Stripes,’ ‘Terror in the Aisles’ (with ‘Carrie’ co-star Amy Irving), ‘Jawbreaker,’ and ‘The Devil’s Rejects.’
