Throughout the 80s, Cassidy enjoyed some success, however, he decided that he wanted to be behind the lens rather than directly in front of it, switching to work behind the scenes. His first gig was in the art department at Jim Henson Productions.
After more than a decade in this area of the industry, it seems he’s itching to get some scripts in his hands, more recently acting in the stage production of The Family Game for which he enjoyed much praise!
Jenny O’Hara – Now
We could sit here all day listing her combined 50+ appearances, but we’ll skip through to the highlights reel! You may have seen Jenny on television in Beverly Hills, 90210, Law & Order, ER, Party of Five, NYPD Blue, Nip/Tuck, Grey’s Anatomy, CSI, NCIS, Supernatural or more recently, Transparent.
And we didn’t even mention The Mindy Project, The King of Queens, Big Love, Costello, or Dangerous Minds! Her career has seen her utilize her chameleon-like skills, transforming into a variety of characters and roles, and, believe it or not, O’Hara has done it whilst juggling marriage and two children! What a legend!
Ryan Cassidy – Then
Despite coming from a family with a background in the entertainment industry, Ryan decided to first try his hand at law enforcement before the screen,
He then found himself one year later on The Facts of Life, portraying Kevin Metcalf. With his good nature and good looks, he was a success on the show, despite getting on Blair Warner’s nerves on more than one occasion!
Juliette Lewis – Then
Born in 1973 in Woodland Hills California, this talented cutie began her acting career really young. Her parents both encouraged her creative sensibilities, and as a result she landed her first gig at age 12.
Whilst Lewis was only cast in two episodes in the season, there’s no such thing as bad publicity in the entertainment industry, with the brief stint boosting exposure to audiences and allowing her to book more jobs!
Juliette Lewis – Now
These days, Juliette Lewis is a household name, and an award-winning actress, known for her somewhat eccentric character portrayals in films which are less than conventional! Her role in Scorsese’s Cape Fear truly set her apart from the rest, appearing alongside screen legend Robert De Niro. For this role, she was nominated for an Oscar AND a Golden Globe.
Her filmography includes What’s Eating Gilbert Grape, Natural Born Killers, From Dusk till Dawn, The Evening Star, The Other Sister, Whip It and August: Osage. County. She even launched a singing career in 2004, starting a band called Juliette and the Licks, however, has since gone solo.
