Taran Noah Smith
Taran Noah Smith is best known for his portrayal of the youngest son, Mark, on the television sitcom "Home Improvement", which aired from 1991 to 1999. His work on "Home Improvement" led to a starring role as Tiny Tim in the 1995 made-for-TV Christmas movie "Ebbie". After winning two Kids Choice Awards, Smith appeared as a guest on various talk shows including "The Today Show" and "Live with Regis and Kathie Lee". As is often the case with child actors, success is accompanied by family drama and Smith is no exception. He sued his parents for his $1.5 million trust fund, which he claimed they squandered on a mansion for themselves. When he turned 17 in 2001, he married a woman twice his age and together they built a vegan cheese business. The marriage ended in divorce in 2007. After his long-running stint on "Home Improvement", Smith was often featured on talk shows and entertainment news programs but has rarely appeared in TV or film roles.
