1. Barry Watson as Matt
Holy moly, the eldest child of the Camden family looks … dare I say even better than he did in the ’90s? Watson has had a couple high-profile recurring TV roles in recent years on Gossip Girl and Hart of Dixie. If you watch Masters of Sex, you saw him twice already this season!
2. Mackenzie Rosman as Ruthie
The cute little sister of the Camden family is now 24, and enjoying her youth and beauty. Last summer she posed for Maxim and the results were steamy. As for her acting career, she was on four episodes of The Secret Life of the American Teenager and had a TV movie last year called Ghost Shark. Which sounds kind of brilliant.
3. Stephen Collins as Eric Camden
Reverend Camden has been doing good since 7th Heaven. He’s done a bunch of Broadway work, and had a substantial role in the 2007 film Because I Said So, with Diane Keaton and Mandy Moore. He was also on one episode of The Office, in the eighth season, playing Andy Bernard’s dad.
4. David Gallagher as Simon
Having long since abandoned his iconic bowl cut, Gallagher is very much playing the grown-up these days. He had a small recurring role on Numb3rs as a serial killer (Simon noooo), and has made appearances on The Vampire Diaries, Bones, and CSI.
5. Catherine Hicks as Annie
Looking good, Mommy Camden. Catherine Hicks has been working steadily since 7th Heaven, although it appears to be a lot of independent and TV movie work. Sci-fi fans can still find her as a guest at comic-con, though. She’s still admired for her role in the 1986 Star Trek movie, Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home.
6. Andrew Keegan as Wilson
’90s heartthrob Andrew Keegan was on in the early days of 7th Heaven, playing Wilson, a love interest to Mary (Jessica Biel), who had a kid. (SCANDAL!) He’s gotten a bit of press recently because apparently, dude created a religion? WHATTT???
7. Beverley Mitchell as Lucy
Cool fact: Mitchell, who played a middle child of the Camden family, is in fact OLDER than Jessica Biel/Mary, her “older” TV sister. Even though she filmed during 7th Heaven, it seems worth mentioning that she was in Saw 2 in 2005 and some wish that never happened. She was regularly on The Secret Life of the American Teenager and recorded a country music album right around the end of 7th Heaven.
8. Ashlee Simpson as Cecilia
Oooh, early Ashlee Simpson. She was on the show for about two years playing Simon’s girlfriend and general friend to the Camden family. After that … you know the story. Just last month she got married to actor Evan Ross.
9. Tyler Hoechlin as Martin
Martin was always hangin’ around with the Camden family and you have to just feel so bad for him because when he declared his love for Ruthie, she chose T-Bone over him. Womp womp. Anyhow, Hoechlin’s doing just dandy because he has an awesome role on MTV’s Teen Wolf. Well done.
10. Rachel Blanchard as Roxanne
This friend to Lucy is still working it. Post-7th Heaven, she had a recurring role on Peep Show, and was most recently on FX’s TV version of Fargo.
11. Haylie Duff as Sandy
The girl Simon was involved with and OMG maybe he was the father of her child? Haylie Duff continues to be the sister to Hilary and she is always doing something — a TV movie, singing, cooking. But in 2012, she voiced Summer for the animated TV version of Napoleon Dynamite, which is cool.
12. Jessica Biel as Mary
After season six, the eldest Camden daughter only had a recurring recurring role on the show, which was probably a good move for her. She tried her hand at some more serious roles (like in the 2006 film The Illusionist), but also showed up in, um, Valentine’s Day and New Year’s Eve. But she married Justin Timberlake, so she wins at everything.
13. Happy as “Happy”
Sadly, Happy is happy no longer. He has moved on to a better place called Doggie Heaven. RIP, Happy.
