The ‘mood’ of cinema, that is, the emotional load such as action, adventure, drama, fantasy, melodrama, mystery, romance, comedy, among others, has made the recipients of each film trapped by the different stories; some cause sadness, but there are others that cause laughter and entertainment. This is the case of ‘Mi Pobre Diablillo’ which was released in 1991, leaving great memories for the pranks of ‘Junior’.
‘Mi Pobre Diablillo’ tells the story of a couple who decides to adopt ‘Junior’, a seven-year-old boy who has been returned to the orphanage more than thirty times. Although the spouses see him as sweet and tender, on more than one occasion he makes them go through hardships and bad times for so many evil things that he commits to the people he gets to know.
His characters are remembered from the film as ‘Junior Healy’, the protagonist played by Michael Oliver, ‘Trixie’ (Ivyann Schwan), ‘Flo’ (Amy Yasbeck), ‘Igor Peabody’ (Gilbert Gottfried), ‘Ben’ (John Ritter), among others. All of them They have had an extraordinary change since they appeared in that comedy film.

Junior Healy (Michael Oliver)
Michael Oliver was just nine years old when he started his acting career and played the mischievous boy ‘Junior Heal’. At the time of taking on the character, Oliver had no acting experience. However, his performance was so dazzling that he was nominated for the ‘Young Artist’ Award for ‘Best Actor in a Leading Role in a Comedy Film’. And although he did not win, he did manage to win the affection of those who enjoyed the three films.
However, Oliver was never seen again in the world of cinema, because He decided to withdraw from that career and is currently dedicated to programming and the technology industry.
Trixie (Ivyann Schwan)
After her character as ‘Trixie’ in ‘My Little Devil’, she was chosen for the role of ‘Claudia’ in ‘Interview with the Vampire’.
However, he had to decline the offer because his mother considered it inappropriate. Some time later, the little ‘Trixie’ transcended the musical world and released her first album ‘Daisies’. She then created the group ‘Ivyann Sugar & The Spice’.
However, she did not grow up in the industry, so she decided to withdraw from the artistic field to be fully at home as a mother and wife. Currently, Schwan is seen happily showing off her son on her social media.
