Travis Tedford in 2017: Where is he Now?
Travis Tedford was the name every brand loved for product endorsement in 90's. His Welch grape juice advertisement even pushed his successful career as a child actor to a greater height.
After "The Little Rascals" he did few big projects like “A Bug’s Life” 1998, “The Thirteenth Floor” (1999), “The Amanda Show” (1999-2001) and “The Final” (2010), but with no success like his first role as Spanky.
Unlike everybody's guess, Travis played only a few movies, and his face rarely showed up in the media world!
The actor has given up acting to join another field for himself. He became a marketing specialist for the Texas Trust Credit Union trying to explore his business skills.
Amidst his absence, Tedford got highlighted in 2007’s TMZ story that showed him working the overnight shift at a Wal-Mart with the badge.
The 27-year-old actor, who stands at the height of 5’7”, explained his reason why he never did big roles after Spanky as,
"I was typecast pretty hardcore and wasn't given a lot of roles because I looked too much like Spanky. That's why I never did any huge projects after Little Rascals. It's like Seinfeld when everyone wants George Costanza[rather than Jason Alexander]. When I moved back to Texas in 2002, I was really done with acting. I didn't tell anyone who I was unless recognized.”
He further added how he moved on after leaving the acting career.
“After I made it to my senior year, I figured out how to use the whole thing in a positive way, and it didn't haunt me anymore. Instead of running from the fact I was Spanky, I embraced it. Changing that feeling alone made me a more positive person, which in turn increased my friendships with people."
As of now, he has diverged himself totally on the management field. His work in Texas Trust Credit Union is growing from Financial Service Officer to Inbound Marketing Specialist to Digital Coordinator. His LinkedIn seems to be speaking on behalf of his career in management!
Well, the change in career course seems to be paying him well regarding personal satisfaction, as he seems to have not made up mind to indulge in movies or TV works.
