Annette Funicello / In 1955, Walt Disney cast 12-year-old Annette on The Mickey Mouse Club. She eventually parlayed her girl-next-door image into starring roles in teen beach-romp movies with Frankie Avalon. In 1987, while filming another beach movie with him (as parents by then) she experienced symptoms later diagnosed as multiple sclerosis. In her last years, she was in an MS coma, finally succumbing to the disease at age 70 on April 8, 2013.
