A classic film released in 2003, School of Rock guaranteed to wake up your inner rock star. Starring Jack Black as struggling rock singer and guitarist Dewey Finn who is kicked out of his rock band by his so called friends. In desperate need of an income, he disguises himself as a substitute teacher and from there meets his students who just so happen to be musically talented! Dewey decides the quickest way to pay his rent is for him to form a student band to compete for a cash prize in the Battle of the Bands. There was one little detail though, it had to be kept a secret.

Also known as Tomika ‘Turkey Sub’, Maryam  was known from the film as the quieter kid with the killer lungs. Her life after the film is one not known much about as she decided to remain out of the public eye. Although she did take part in the School of Rock reunion, there is not much else that she has done to pursue in her acting career.

Finally, none other than Jack Black himself.  Jack decided to keep busy after the school of Rock and appeared in many roles on television. He recorded music with Tenacious D and starred in films such as Jumanji, King Kong and Goosebumps. He also did the voice over for Po in the Kung Fu Panda films and Lenny in Shark Tale.

It’s good to see that some of their careers really took off from the School of Rock. For those that didn’t, at least it’s something to show the kids when they grow up!
