Born Frederick Llewellyn
on March 28, 1924
Freddie Bartholomew was raised by his maiden Aunt, Millicent Bartholomew after his disinterested parents granted guardianship to her. "Aunt Cissy" brought him to the United States and to MGM, where he landed the role of young David Copperfield, and was an immediate sensation. He had made a small fortune by his teen years, but spent most of it fighting a custody battle between Aunt Cissy (whom he wanted to stay with), and his parents. When his acting career ended, he worked as a TV host, a director, then an advertising executive. He died in Sarasota, Florida on January 23, 1992.
