Soleil Moon Frye opens the vault at 90.
In the trailer for his new Hulu documentary, Boy 90, Frye relives a crucial moment in his life when he came of age in front of the cameras.
“When I was a teenager, I carried a video camera with me, wherever I went I documented my whole life,” Punky brewster says the star in the trailer.
“I carried that video camera everywhere and then I kept it for 20 years and had never looked back at it, and a few years ago, I decided to unlock Pandora’s box, and it was really meant for everyone but me, but it ended up becoming a deeply personal coming-of-age story that really changed my life forever, “she adds.
The documentary goes behind the scenes in the lives of some of the biggest child stars of decades, including Brian Austin Green, Stephen Dorff, Mark-Paul Gosselaar, David Arquette, Balthazar Getty, Heather McComb and more.
“The most uncomfortable period of your life was when we were in front of the cameras,” says Gosselaar in the trailer.
It’s a true time capsule of a group of friends who grew up in Hollywood and New York City in the 90s, balancing childhood and fame before the explosion of the internet and social media. A time that included self-discovery, public relations, and navigating the peaks and pits of fame at that age, including the deaths of many of his close friends.
“It seems like every week I lost a friend,” Getty says.
But by sharing these moments with each other, he helped this group of friends realize that they are not alone.
“I didn’t know what true self-love was until this process,” says Frye of the project.
Boy 90 premieres on Hulu on March 12.
