6. Per custom, 2 brand-new stars were generated to play Clark and Ellen’s exasperated kids. Juliette Lewis took control of the function of Audrey, informing Rolling Stone, “The reality that the Griswolds have a brand-new set of kids each time ended up being the important things. Your representatives could not describe why it was appropriate; it simply is. Of course, I matured with the Vacation film with the famous Anthony Michael Hall. This was this substantial amazing chance and even at 15, I understood it was a huge offer.”
7. Just prior to production started, Lewis found her then-boyfriend was cheating on her.
“That first trip to Colorado, I took my boyfriend and caught him in our hotel room talking to another girl on the phone,” she exposed to Rolling Stone. “I didn’t even tell him that I heard him, I just asked who he was talking to. He lied and I said, ‘Oh, by the way. You’re leaving tomorrow morning.’ I booked his flight and then he left, and then I went to go film.”
8. Future Big Bang Theory star Johnny Galecki ended up being the franchise’s brand-new Rusty after putting himself on tape and sending it in.
“They flew me out to Los Angeles; it was one of the first times I was ever here,” he remembered to Rolling Stone. “I read with Chevy and Jeremiah—and that alone would have been enough for me. I could have been given my walking papers and sent home on the next flight and it still would have been a dream come true. Chevy told me right there in the room that I had gotten the role.”
