Reblogged from Clarissa Anne
Rocky Horror Picture show is a cult film, dated back to 1975. There are some locations in the U.S. where theaters will actually perform ‘Rocky Horror Picture Show’ in front of the screen while the screen is playing. In Cincinnati, Ohio, that group is called ‘The Denton Affair‘. They pay homage to the cast of Rocky Horror who are now hiding in the shadows of the wacky film or who have become major actors/actresses today. Read where the stars of ‘Rocky Horror Picture Show’ are now!
Tim Curry who portrayed Dr. Frank-N-Furter
Tim Curry, one of the most versatile actors of today, played Dr. Frank-N-Furter, a scientist, in Rocky Horror when he was just twenty nine.

Richard O’Brien who portrayed Riff Raff
Who could forget the creepy Riff Raff? Who could forget the man who actually wrote the story for Rocky Horror in six months? Well Richard is still working and his filmography might shock you!

Patricia Quinn who portrayed Magenta
Quite possibly one of my favorite characters of all time, Patricia played the eerie domestic Magenta. Without the heavy eyeliner and long, bushy hair, you can hardly recognize her! After Rocky she continued to act mainly in TV movies, and TV series like her co-star Barry.
Since Rocky Horror, Patricia has been in:
Well Anyway, 1976. Leap in the Dark, 1977. The Professionals, 1978. Premiere, 1979. Tales of the Unexpected, 1980. Shock Treatment, 1981. The Box of Delights, 1984. Lost Empires, 1986. Doctor Who, 1987. The Countless Alice, 1993. England, My England, 1995. Tamara Drewe, 2010.
Nell Campbell who portrayed Columbia
Still redheaded and smiling, Nell continues to act, although not as much as her co-stars. She opened up her own night club in 1987 which is still running (I think). She is writer for Talk Magazine and is/used to be a dancer! She can do so many things it’s scary!
Since Rocky Horror, Nell has been in:
Alfie Darling, 1976. Journey Among Women, 1977. Jubilee, 1978. Shoestring, 1979. Pink Floyd The Wall, 1982. Dead on Time, 1983. The Killing Fields, 1984. Great Expectations, 1998. Intern, 2000. Rake, 2010.
Peter Hinwood who portrayed Rocky Horror
The photo above is eleven years old due to the fact Peter has stayed out of the spotlight. He blames Rocky Horror, where he stared Frank-N-Furter’s creation, for the end of his acting career. He quit acting and is currently working in an antique shop! If you ask him about the film he gets angry! So whatever you do if you walk into his shop, don’t ask about the time warp.
Since Rocky Horror, Peter has been in:
Meat Loaf who portrayed Eddie
Who can forget the lovable Eddie? He rode a motorcycle, played sax, and died horrifically in the film?! Since his part in the film, he hasn’t stopped acting or singing! He is actually on tour currently so if you’re a Meat Loaf fan go see him!
Since Rocky Horror, Meat Loaf has been in:
