    Home Alone star Angela Goethals, who played Kevin McAllister’s older sister Linnie on the classic Christmas film, looks completely unrecognisable 32 years later

    Home Alone actress Angela Goethals, who played Kevin McAllister’s older sister Linnie, looks totally different 32 years after the classic Christmas film came out.

    Angela was just 13 years old when she played Linnie, and was one of only three main cast members who didn't return for Home Alone 2: Lost In New York, which came out two years later.

    In a snap shared on Instagram this week, Angela paid tribute to her role in the film as she donned a Home Alone jumper as she referenced her iconic scene.

    The actress also looked completely different as she showed off a short blonde bob which was pulled from from her face.

    She also sported thick black reading glasses and showed off her huge wedding ring as she pointed at her themed clothing.

    It didn’t take long for the comments to come pouring in from fans of the show, as they gushed over the poignant reference to her first hit film.

    One fan posted: "So cool," while another added: "Ayeeee! Actually just got done watching home alone!! Decided to look you up! Merry Christmas!," and a third fan agreed by adding: "Yaaaayyyyy."

    Linnie, who was behind the infamous Les Incompetents scene, may have only been in the film for a few scenes, but she certainly made her mark in the showbiz world.

    She went on to star in Jerry Maguire, Spanglish and hit shows such as Grey’s Anatomy and CSI.

    One of her last acting roles was black comedy horror mockumentary Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon in 2006.

    Since then, Angela went on to marry fellow actor Russell Soder and the couple share one child together, with the actress regularly sharing snaps of their family time.
