O’Neill continued work as Annette in an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation, but most of her scenes were cut out due to time constraints. She can, however, be seen in the background of a crowd scene. She acted as Lisa Barnes in the pilot episode of Where’s Rodney? with Honey co-star Jared Rushton and Rodney Dangerfield, but it wasn’t picked up in 1990 or 1991. She continued working in television series such as Room for Romance, The Young Riders, and Gabriel’s Fire.

She starred as Susan Hartley in an episode of Murder, She Wrote and came back to the Disney screen in the sequel, Honey, I Blew Up the Kid, as Amy Szalinski. Before this was written as a sequel to Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, it was titled Big Baby and didn’t have any characters from the original film. As the plot was changed to include the Szalinskis, there was no room for a female lead, besides Keri Russell’s role as the babysitter. O’Neill only appeared in the opening scene as she is leaving for college. Her character is later mentioned in Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves.

She later appeared in the television film, White Wolves: A Cry in the Wild II as Pandra, one of the young adults stuck in the Cascade Mountains, having to fend for themselves. In 1994, she appeared in the National Lampoon film, Attack of the 5 Ft. 2 In. Women as a German Skater.

Personal life [ edit ]

After her interest in acting had waned, O’Neill quit acting in 1994 after getting scripts that required nudity. She met old childhood friend, Roy Johns, owner of a few circus acts. As she watched his work, she became interested in how active the girls in his performances were. She became involved with his acts and is now part of Johns’ crew. [4]

She has toured places in Italy and Asia, and has brandished her skills at Harrah’s Casino, Disneyland, and other places. She doesn’t have any children and is not currently married, but hoping to start a family with someone who isn’t "intimidated" by her work as a performer. [5]

O’Neill returned to television in 2005 to appear in an MTV documentary with her Honey, I Shrunk the Kids co-star Thomas Wilson Brown in The 100 Greatest Family Films. In 2008, she appeared as an Officer’s wife in an independent film, The Japanese Sandman.
