We all had our favorite childhood actors and actresses growing up. My personal favorite actresses were Raven from That’s So Raven Hilary Duff from Lizzie McGuire. Much of my childhood time was spent binge-watching their shows and decorating my room in all their posters.
If you ask me, children shows were at its peak during that time, but quite a few years have passed since then, and I’ve caught myself wondering: where are these celebrities now? You may check up on them from time to time to see how they’re doing, but this is what all your favorite childhood celebrities are up to now:
After her Lizzie McGuire role, Hilary Duff went on to star in several other movies, like A Cinderella Story and Cheaper by the Dozen 2. In 2007, she married hockey player Mike Comrie and had a baby boy in 2012. However, the two went their separate ways. She is now 32 and married to her new man, Matthew Koma, who she had a baby girl with in 2018. She may not be Lizzie McGuire anymore, but Hillary Duff is still thriving.
Miley got her big break starring as Hannah Montana, but her life since then looks like it has been quite a roller coaster. After Hannah Montana ended, Miley continued to pursue her acting and music career and made a name for herself in the music industry. She married her long-term boyfriend, Liam Hemsworth, in 2018, but the marriage was short-lived, and the pair parted ways in 2020. She is now dating the Australian singer Cody Simpson and seems as happy as ever!
That’s So Raven was an iconic part of my childhood, but Raven’s career didn’t stop there. In addition to starring in the show, she appeared in several other movies and the Broadway musical, Sister Act. Raven recently married her partner, Miranda Maday, and the pair looked incredibly happy in wedding photos.
Debby Ryan started her career as a side character on The Suite Life on Deck but made her big break as the lead on the Disney series, Jessie. Since then, she has continued to star in several other shows and movies, including the Netflix series, Insatiable. She married the Twenty One Pilots drummer, Josh Dun, in 2019.
Dylan and Cole Sprouse
Two of the most iconic actors from this time are none other than the Sprouse twins. Both starred on the Disney series, Suite Life of Zack and Cody, which later turned into The Suite Life on Deck. They both took a break from acting in 2011 and went to college at New York University. Cole has continued his acting career and stars as Jughead Jones in Riverdale and has appeared in several other movies. Dylan is dating model Barbara Palvin. Cole dated his fellow Riverdale costar, Lili Reinhart, for several years before recently parting ways.
