It’s an Annie reunion, 33 years in the making!
On Sunday, June 7, Aileen Quinn posed for photos with her former costar Tim Curry at a Tony Awards Viewing Party in LA. The event was a rare public appearance for the 69-year-old actor, who is still recovering from a stroke he suffered nearly three years ago.

“It was amazing,” the 43-year-old actress said of their long-awaited reunion. “Tim was the one [costar] I hadn’t seen in 30 years. It was very emotional because what people don’t realize about him is how kind he is in real life.”
Though his speech and movement have been affected by the stroke, Aileen noted Tim — who played Daniel “Rooster” Hannigan in Annie — still seemed like the same man she worked with as a child in 1982.

“When I came up to him, I was like, ‘Tim, do you remember this face?’ And he said, ‘Of course I do!’ and he had kind of this wry smile,” Aileen told People. “He has that twinkle in his eye as always. Even though it’s not quite the same as 30 years ago because he’s older now, we had a very nice moment.”
