Remember little Samantha from Click? Child star Tatum McCann is unrecognisable after major career change

CLICK first graced our screens just over a decade-and-a-half ago – and some of its child actors look entirely different these days.

The 2006 flick revolves around Michael Newman, a harried workaholic, who is given a universal remote that allows him to pause, rewind or skip past portions of his life – but there’s a catch.

At first, he happily skips the boring times, but that’s until he realises the remote is in control of his life.

Michael shares children Samantha and Ben with his adoring wife Donna and, as you can imagine, the pair have done a lot of growing up since appearing in the film.

In particular, Samantha – portrayed by Tatum McCann – who began her four-year acting career doing various television commercials and a role in NYPD Blue, among other shows.

She then made her film debut in Click as a fresh-faced six-year-old, cementing herself in the hearts of die-hard Adam Sandler fans.

Her last film credits came in 2009 after she appeared in the film The Time Traveler’s Wife, as a young Alba.

Tatum, now 22, has since left the world of acting to pursue a career in Olympic weight lifting.

After competing in a competition last year, the blonde bombshell took to Instagram and uploaded a picture of herself lifting a 60kg-weighted barbell over her head.

She captioned the photo: “I’ve had two hip reconstruction surgeries in the past year and a half.

“I’m proud that that’s the heaviest clean and jerk I’ve hit since my last surgery and I’m glad I got out of the national stage for the first time only eight months post-op.

“I want to be stronger. I need to be stronger. But, at the end of the day, I remind myself that six months ago I couldn’t walk without crutches.”
