Remember Kevin’s sister Linnie from Home Alone? Child star Angela Goethals is unrecognisable now

Remember Kevin’s sister Linnie from Home Alone? Child star Angela Goethals is unrecognisable now

MACAULAY Culkin’s journey from child star to troubled adult has been well documented, but what happened to the other kids in Home Alone?

Angela Goethals played Kevin’s sassy sister Linnie in the 1990 Christmas movie – when she was just 13 years old.

It’s been over 30 years since Home Alone came out, and Angela is a married mum-of-three

She was one of only three main cast members who didn’t return for Home Alone 2: Lost In New York two years later, with Maureen Elisabeth Shay taking on the role instead.

Angela is now 44 and a mum-of-three, after having a daughter with fellow actor Russell Soder, who she married in 2005.

She’s been flying under the radar for a few years now, but what has Angela done since appearing in Home Alone?

In 1996, she played Kathy Sanders in Jerry Maguire – appearing alongside Tom Cruise and Renee Zellweger.

Angela also starred in Adam Sandler’s movie Spanglish, in 2004, and had a recurring part in hit TV series 24 a year later.

She played Maya Driscoll, the mentally ill daughter of Erin, who was the Director of CTU Los Angeles at the time.


A number of small screen parts followed, including those in Grey’s Anatomy, CSI, Without A Trace and Law & Order.

Angela is fluent in French, and has a degree in the subject from private university Vassar College, in Poughkeepsie, USA.

We guess that must have come in handy for her infamous Les Incompetents put-down.

A keen rider, she’s also competed in equestrian events in the past. Angela is on Twitter @angbgoethals and Instagram @angbeegee.
