Ricky was born in Brooklyn, New York City, New York, and raised on Staten Island, New York City. He is the son of Diane and Richard Schroder, both former employees of AT&T. His mother quit her job to raise him and his sister Dawn,  taking him to photo shoots when he was only three months old. As a child, Schroder appeared in many catalogs, and by age six, he had appeared in 60 advertisements.

He made his film debut in The Champ, a 1979 remake of the 1931 film of the same name as the son of Jon Voight’s character . Ricky was nominated for, and subsequently won, a Golden Globe award in 1980 for Best New Male Star of the Year in a Motion Picture.

For his role in The Champ, Ricky was removed from school by his parents in the third grade to focus on his career. Ricky migrated to Los Angeles with his mother, but his father remained in New York City and kept his job with AT&T. The year which followed he appeared in the Disney feature film The Last Flight of Noah’s Ark with Elliott Gould. Ricky also starred as the title character in Little Lord Fauntleroy, alongside Alec Guinness.

Ricky is also well known as the star of the television series Silver Spoons. Ricky  played a starring role as Ricky Stratton, the son of a wealthy and eccentric millionaire, Eddie Stratton. His performance earned him two Young Artist Awards.

He struggled with his identity as an actor when Silver Spoons ended. Potential roles were rare, and he was mainly designated to play boyish-looking teenagers or blond-haired heartthrobs. Ricky avoided the vices of other child actors and attempted to establish himself as a more mature actor, dropping the “y” from his first name. He was enrolled by his mother in  Calabasas High School, but he had trouble adjusting to the new environment.

The year after Silver Spoons ended in 1988,Ricky starred in a primetime CBS TV movie based on a true story, the drama Too Young the Hero, as a 12-year-old who passes for 17 to enlist in World War II. Ricky appeared as the guest timekeeper in Wrestlemania 2 for a match between Hulk Hogan and King Kong Bundy. He was ranked #18 in VH1’s 100 Greatest Kid Stars list and #33 in the 100 Greatest Teen Stars list.

Ricky Schroder’s daughter struggled growing up with him as a father: ‘Actors aren’t most of the time fully functioning humans’

On : March 1, 2019

Ricky Schroder’s daughter says his child stardom made her life difficult.

The actor was a megastar in the ’80s, when there were about three TV stations and Silver Spoons was everything (“the Ricker!”). While his career calmed down from the screaming-girls phase, the actor’s 22-year-old daughter, Cambrie Schroder, says his fame is something that affected their whole family, including her and the relationship they have today, which is strained.

“I grew up in a very abnormal situation,” the model, who appeared on Lifetime’s reality show Growing Up Supermodel, dished to the Daily Mail. “People might think it’s so beautiful and glamorous, but actors aren’t most of the time fully functioning humans.”

She continued: “From my experience, a lot of actors need a lot of attention, and so I felt like my emotional needs growing up were not fully understood or met. I felt isolated a lot of my life because other kids my age weren’t in the same situation. Everyone wanted to meet my dad. Everyone wanted to know my dad. It wasn’t about the kids or my mom. Everyone wanted to be friends with us to meet my dad. It’s not necessarily that he wanted that, but that’s just what came with his career.”

Making it worse, little Cambrie looked just like little Ricky, who shot to stardom after appearing in 1979’s The Champ before he was 10.

“My whole life people told me that I looked exactly like my dad and would always compare me to him,” said Cambrie, who is one of the 48-year-old actor’s four children with Andrea Schroder, whom he split from in 2016. “He had such immense amounts of success that I always felt like I needed to accomplish what he had accomplished. I had really high expectations of myself, and I always wanted to be something so great. I just felt paralyzed with expectation and pressure on myself, and my way to deal with it was to be alone and isolated.”
It led to bouts of depression and anxiety, including “days and weeks” she couldn’t get out of bed. Cambrie said that even when she had success — like when she and her younger sister, Faith, also a model, landed a Forever 21 ad campaign with a billboard in NYC’s Times Square — she had a hard time feeling good about it. She said that ultimately working out and channeling her energy into her fitness brand, Fitness With Cambrie, made her feel better inside and out. “My escape became fitness,” she said, but it’s still something she’s coping with.

Being a model brings its own challenges. “If you don’t have a lot of followers on Instagram, it’s almost like you have no value, like your value is translated to how many followers you have,” she said of the industry, noting that when she goes to a casting, agencies record how many social media followers each person has. She’s well aware that sexy photos get more follows — and it’s something she’s clashed with her dad about to the point where she blocked him on Instagram after he posted comments telling her to cover up. (“It’s better if he just doesn’t see it,” she said.)
“I wouldn’t say I have a good relationship with my dad,” Cambrie said. “I would say that I have to be the bigger person. I have to set boundaries and I have to kind of guide the relationship to what I need. You can’t blame him. He was a child actor in crazy situations and didn’t develop most normal coping mechanisms and normal social skills. He’s not normal. Of course, I love him. I will always love him. I see so much of him in me, but I don’t necessarily agree with his life choices and it’s hard.”

And Schroder split with Andrea in 2016 after 24 years of marriage severed the family, Cambrie said. While her father, who went on to appear in N.Y.P.D. Blue and 24, remained at the family’s home outside L.A. with the couple’s sons (Holden, 27, and Luke, 25), Andrea and Faith, 17, moved to West Hollywood to help the teen’s modeling career. (All three Schroder women were featured on Growing Up Supermodel.)
“I feel for a lot of people whose families get divorced,” the celebrity offspring said, “because I now realize how much pain it causes.”
