    Here's What The Cast Of "Lizzie McGuire" Looks Like 17 Years Later

    Hey now hey now, this is what dreaaaams are made of!

    I think we can all agree that "Lizzie McGuire" was an absolutely iconic part of every Disney kid's childhood, right?

    It served us some of the trendiest lewks and most scathing disses of the early 2000s.

    It's been a hot minute since Hilary Duff first graced our screens as Lizzie in 2001, but Disney recently announced that they're bringing the show back as a reboot on their Disney+ streaming service!


    While the fates of our childhood faves are uncertain in the new show, I decided to check in on their IRL counterparts and see what they're up to all these years later.

    Hilary's definitely been the most active of her former Lizzie McGuire castmates on screen. She's currently portraying Kelsey Peters in Younger, appeared in (and executive produced!) The Haunting of Sharon Tate, and of course is set to star in the Disney+ Lizzie McGuire reboot! On top of all that, Hilary is the proud mother of two little ones and is happily engaged to Matthew Koma – who she collaborated with on her 2015 album Breathe In. Breathe Out.

    Lalaine's done a little bit of everything since her Disney Channel days. She was the bassist for Vanity Theft, had a run with her own original music, and continues to act today – you might've seen her cameo in Easy A or heard about her upcoming movie Definition Please. She's also pretty vocal on social media, where she recently spoke out about the pressure to appear "ethnically ambiguous" rather than embrace her East Asian heritage growing up.

    Adam's definitely shied away from the limelight since his Lizzie McGuire days, keeping a low profile both on and off social media. After a few indie films our beloved Gordo decided to head back to school, graduating from UC Berkeley and earning an MPA from Baruch College. Now he's keeping busy behind the scenes as the Development Officer at the Irish Arts Center in New York.

    Ashlie's also kept a super low profile, the photo on the right being her last major public appearance a whole 15 years ago. She hasn't graced our screens again since The Lizzie McGuire Movie in 2003, instead deciding to shift her career path away from acting. Now Ashlie's keeping her hands full as a criminal defense attorney and as a mother to an adorable little girl.

    Clayton's been acting on and off since he brought teen heartthrob Ethan Craft to our TV screens, taking a break during college to play water polo at Pepperdine and eventually playing professionally in Europe. Clayton's appeared in tons of comedies and shorts since, but most recently he's been taking the small stage by storm in his live musical comedy Root Beer Bandits at the Garry Marshall Theatre.

    Jake Thomas (Matt McGuire)

    Jake – who played Lizzie's little brother – definitely isn't so little anymore. Jake's done a little bit of everything since his role as Matt – screenwriting, directing, photography, and of course acting. You might recognize him from his cameos in crime shows like NCIS or S.W.A.T, Lifetime movies, or as Finn in the Storytellers TV series. He's also photographed tons of your favorite YouTubers like Miranda Sings, Jenn McAllister, and the Merrell Twins.

    And there you have it, they're all grown up! Guess we'll just have to wait and see who makes a comeback in the reboot! 👀
