Featured on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" back in 1991, this child prodigy has faced some big changes. Do you still recognize them?

Child Prodigy And Business Tycoon

When Oprah Winfrey invited 13-year-old child prodigy James Harries onto her talk show in 1991, the focus was on the teen's business savvy. At age four, Harries had begun his own antique business, turning hundreds of dollars of profit on items he bought for just a few cents. He was known as "Britain's Youngest Tycoon."When asked if he'd always known that he was different from other children his age, he replied, "I was on a documentary and they put me with the average child. Then I saw the difference. I couldn't believe it. I really could see what actual people used to say [about me]. 'Well, you're different.' I actually realized I was."
