Home Alone’s Diana Rein is unrecognisable 31 years after playing Kevin’s cousin Sondra – and is now a pop star

HOME Alone actress Diana Rein looks unrecognisable 31 years on from playing Kevin McCallister's cousin Sondra.

The 43-year-old appeared in both the 1990s flick and its sequel, Home Alone 2: Lost in New York.

Although she enjoyed a brief stint acting, the star has swapped the screen for the stage and is now a musician based in California.

Diana also has ditched her auburn-coloured hair and thick fringe for a peroxide blonde bob.

The singer-songwriter recently released her new single, Times Like These, a blues rock-inspired tune.

Aside from music, Diana, who was born in Romania before moving to Chicago as a child, recently reunited with her Home Alone cast mates.

Taking to Instagram earlier this month, Diana shared a screenshot of a Zoom reunion she had with her onscreen siblings and cousins.

She captioned the heartfelt post: "The Holidays are all about family and I was so thrilled to be a part of a zoom recently with my Home Alone family!

Elsewhere, we took a look back at Diana's on-screen sister Kristin Minster, who played Kevin's eldest cousin Heather.

The actress famously mistook the nextdoor neighbour's kid for Kevin during a head count as they prepared to leave for their festive family breakaway.

Fans of the flick will remember Heather counting all the McCallister children outside their rented minivans while mean-spirited Buzz tried to disrupt her count by shouting random numbers.

Now 31 years on, Kristin, who was 25 at the time of filming the iconic movie, is still acting with previous roles in This Is Us and Ray Donovan.

The 56-year-old will next star in comedy series Steffy & Roxy as well as a yet-to-be-released thriller titled 7th Secret opposite Stacey Dash

After her stint in Home Alone, Kristin most notably joined medical drama ER in 1995 playing desk clerk Miranda 'Randi' Fronczak.

She was originally hired to appear in just three episode of the series but ended up starring in a total of 71 episode and stayed on the show until 2003.
