Ron Howard, former child star and famous filmmaker, is stuck in most people’s imagination as a child or teenager, but he’s actually 64 years old. He rose to fame as Opie Taylor in The Andy Griffith Show and went on to play Richie Cunningham in Happy Days.
Throughout the years, he also starred in a number of movies, but eventually he left the spotlight to focus on directing. Some of his top directing credits include Apollo 13, A Beautiful Mind, The Da Vinci Code, Frost/Nixon, and Solo: A Star Wars Story (which is coming out this May).
In 1975, Ron married his teenage sweetheart, Cheryl. In 1981, they had their first child, a daughter, who they named Bryce Dallas Howard.
Four years later, in 1985, they had twins Jocelyn and Paige. Finally, in 1987, they welcomed son Reed to the family.
Ron and Cheryl were careful with how they raised their kids — they wanted to keep them away from the spotlight to give them as normal a childhood as possible.
When Bryce was seven, though, Ron allowed her to be an extra in some of his movies. The early exposure to acting stuck with Bryce, who went on to pursue acting later in life.

@realronhoward has always said that if he wasn't a filmmaker, he would be a teacher. It may not be "official", but he's certainly already living the alternative because I learn so much from him each and every day–and I know I'm not the only one! #TBT to Project Imagin8ion with my Daddio taking a @canonusa selfie!
The second Jurassic World movie, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is slated to come out on June 22, 2018.
