Today is Henry Thomas’s Birthday. To celebrate, we thought it would be a good time to revisit Thomas’s amazing audition for E.T. the Extra Terrestrial. Spielberg is often given a lot of credit, and rightfully so, for being able to get amazing performances from his kid actors. This audition footage, and story from the casting director of E.T., shows that Henry Thomas was an incredibly talented child actor before getting the chance to work with Steven Spielberg.
