Where Is Pippi Longstocking Now?
For some reason the Punky Brewster theme song in my previous post got me wondering what happened to Tami Erin, from ‘The New Adventures of Pippi Longstocking.’ I confess that I’m pretty superficial, so my biggest concern in looking her up, was how she aged. Pippi Longstocking still has to be a cute girl, right? I have good news and bad news. The good news is, as you can see from the picture on the right, Pippi still looks great. The bad news is, I found an interview with her, and she is pretty darn annoying. I often get perturbed when actors ignore the roles that made them famous (hear that Jan Brady?). But I’ve amended my complaint to account for actors that get excessively amped about the roles that made them famous. In just about every Tami Erin interview that I saw, she mentions her Pippi role about five hundred times. She even launched a “Pippi inspired” clothing line. Watch an interview below to see the very humble Pippi spout a twenty page resume in just under three minutes. It’s pretty impressive.
Update: It turns out TMZ was also interested in Pippi’s whereabouts. While most people try to escape TMZ, if you watched the first interview, I think you can guess how she reacted.
