The Original Power Rangers Cast: What Happen to Them?
Aug 13, 2009 19:26
In 1993, they were the equivalent of Hannah Montana. Yes, we're talking about about the original casts of Power Rangers. The show featured laughable fight scenes and terrible special effects, but spandex, new colors, and the teenage superhero fantasy kept the show going. Don't tell me you didn't watch it, because guilty as charged, I did watch it a lot!
Since starring in a kid’s hit series isn’t exactly a sign of future success, let’s take a look at what became of the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.
The Pink Ranger -Amy Jo Johnson
Amy has had the most successful career post-Rangers, but that’s not saying much. She left the show in 1995 and has since landed guest roles on Spin City, ER, Saved By The Bell: The new Class, Felecity, Wildfire and a handful of movies you’ve never seen.
She’s currently starring in the CBS police drama Flashpoint and would also like you to know that she’s an established musician.
The Yellow Ranger - Thuy Trang
Trang left her role as the Yellow Ranger after only 1.5 seasons on the show, hoping to move on to bigger and better roles. That never really happened, as her only other credited acting gigs were in The Crow’s sequel and a minor part in Spy Hard.
Tragically, she was killed in a car accident in September 2001. RIP.
The Red Ranger - Austin St. John
After the show’s immediate success, St. John did what any other celebrity would do - demand more money. Unfortunately for him, he forgot that it’s easy to replace a character that spends much of his time behind a mask, and they told him to shove it. He returned to the series for bit parts over the years, but clearly made a huge mistake by leaving when he did.
Nowadays, he’s working in DC as a paramedic and has aged a bit:
Yes, I drink beer, and yes, I will fight you
The Black Ranger - Walter Jones
Like his friends Yellow and Red Ranger, Jones got greedy after the first season and was quickly shown the door (never again would the Black Ranger be so literal). He moved on to numerous roles in every possible African American-targeted show - Family Matters, In The House, Moesha, and The Parent ‘Hood.
After many more forgettable roles, he dropped acting and put his focus on salsa dancing. According to his website, he was the 2004 Mayan World Salsa champion. Bravo! Jones was in the news recently after being pulled over for DUI, leading to this headline: Mighty Drunken Power Ranger.
Wayne Brady hates when I impersonate him
The Blue Ranger - David Yost
David stuck around longer than most, lasting on the show until 1996, when the producers pretty much forced him out by taking away his character’s powers.
After that, the only notable gigs he’s reeled in are production roles for Temptation Island and You Are What You Eat. Other than that, no one on the internet seems to know where David Yost is.
My hair issues were predictable from day 1
The White Ranger - Jason David Frank
Frank is the one person who had no problem with making a career out of Power Rangers. He appeared in over 240 episodes and holds the record for most ninja outfit changes - green, white, red, and black.
After finally hanging up the tights, he didn’t do much besides land the starring role in the John Stewart biopic Fall Guy. No, not that Jon Stewart. John Stewart, the (apparently) famous stuntman. After that straight-to-DVD failure, he went on run a number of karate schools while reminding people of his 6th degree black belt. His most recent Wikipedia-worthy event was at the 2009 Anime Festival in Orlando, where he signed a male fan’s chest. Oh, to be a celebrity.

You will be surprised, but the research part is not the most difficult one for a lot of students. The biggest problems they face when writing an Introduction and Conclusion. They don't know what can be included and what can't be included in these parts, while keeping a healthy balance between an introduction, body, and conclusion in terms of word count. Read more
Given the individuality and uniqueness of every person, some things in life have to be unified. White collars are to dress in the classic style to work, while pupils wear school uniform on a daily basis. This allows for consistency and accuracy in their respective institutions just like the formatting does in writing. For clear and digestible expression of ideas, essays follow a certain structure, consist of particular elements, and have a special layout. Read more
Bike ride is the most elementary form of transport. In earlier days, it was the first human powered vehicle that later transformed the face of automation. The first bicycle appeared around 400 years ago. Slowly innovation and technology shaped the rudimentary bicycle into the modern day road bike that we are so accustomed to see. Read more
