EW Reunions: The 'Pretty in Pink' cast agrees that Duckie would have come out by now
Andie might have reconciled with Blane at the prom, but we die-hard Pretty in Pink fans know that union wasn’t built to last. Sometime after graduation, Molly Ringwald’s Andie would have packed her bags for F.I.T. with her best bud Duckie (Jon Cryer) and left that “major appliance” Blane (Andrew McCarthy) in the uptight-richie dust. Or, as Cryer told us at EW’s Pretty in Pink reunion photo shoot recently, “Molly had a very good theory about that. She said, ‘Andie and Blane probably did not end up together, but Duckie and Andie ended up friends for life.'” That sounds about right. As does another Ringwald theory: “I’m sure that Duckie came out by now.”
Cryer and Ringwald were joined at the shoot by the marvelous Annie Potts, who played Trax manager/Andie’s surrogate big sister Iona.
