Maggie From Hook Is Gorgeous Now In Her 30s

As nostalgic films go, Hook is definitely up there as one of the greatest for '90s kids. And with a cast like Robin Williams, Dustin Hoffman, Julia Roberts, and Maggie Smith, the Spielberg classic is hard to forget. But what about its child stars? At only seven years old, Amber Scott stole hearts with her portrayal of Peter Pan's daughter Maggie. While her co-stars continued to be in the limelight past Hook's release, Scott decided to go forgo acting altogether.

Other than a voice acting role for the docu-series American Experience in 1995 (via IMDb), Hook is the only piece of media Scott has starred in. Instead, she decided to focus on life outside the entertainment sphere by continuing her education. According to The Famous People, the child actor went on to study at the liberal arts college Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut, where she graduated with a bachelor's degree in 2006. While there, she was reportedly a member of the Delta Psi Epsilon sorority.

Amber Scott's on-screen brother is now a lawyer

However, Scott seemingly returned to the entertainment world in 2015, when a recent headshot of her surfaced (via E! Online). The actor, now in her 30s, was also credited as a producer on Cannonball in 2019, according to her IMDb. The short film, which won 10 awards including at the Manhattan and Santa Monica Film Festivals, is a crime comedy that follows a mom in an abusive marriage that hires an assassin to kill her husband.

Scott's career trajectory is somewhat similar to her on-screen brother, played by Charlie Korsmo, who has since gone on to become a lawyer. While Korsmo starred in eight films over his child star career (via IMDb), he, too, abruptly left the entertainment industry before returning in 2018 to star in Chained for Life as Herr Director. Korsmo is currently an Assistant Professor of Law, according to his IMDb bio, where he "teaches courses in corporate law, corporate finance, and torts."
