Nine-year-old Judith Barsi as five-year-old Thea Brody in Jaws: The Revenge

Judith Barsi (June 6, 1978 — July 25, 1988) was an American child actress of the mid-late 1980s.

Barsi suffered from a growth deformity which made her look younger than she was which casting directors exploited - at six years old she played a three year old for a Made-for-TV Movie and at ten years old she played a seven year old on St. Elsewhere. Barsi provided the voice of Anne-Marie in All Dogs Go to Heaven and of Ducky in The Land Before Time.

She never lived to see the premieres of The Land Before Time or All Dogs Go to Heaven, because she was shot to death on July 25, 1988, along with her mother, by her abusive father, who committed suicide two days after his crime.
