7th Heaven aired from 1996 to 2007 on the WB, one of the quintessential networks of the '90s that launched hits like Dawson's Creek and Felicity. Like these series, 7th Heaven was very popular in the '90s and early aughts, but just where are 7th Heaven actors now?
The series followed the adventures of the Camden family, including the Reverend Eric, his wife Annie, and their children Matt, Mary, Lucy, Simon, and Ruthie. In Season 3, Annie gave birth to twins Sam and David. By the end of the show's 11 seasons, many careers had been launched, and actors from 7th Heaven are still working in the business.
Here's a look at the 7th Heaven cast then and now. Read on and try not to get the theme song stuck in your head.
Jessica Biel is probably the most notable actor to come out of 7th Heaven. Even during her stint on the show, she drew attention for her scandalous spread in Gear magazine, which upset 7th Heaven producers for its nature.
After she left the series, she starred in critically acclaimed movies like Elizabethtown, The Rules of Attraction, and The Illusionist. On October 19, 2012, she married singer and entertainer Justin Timberlake. In April 2015, they welcomed their first child into the world, Silas Randall Timberlake. In 2017, she earned a Golden Globe nomination for her work on the USA Network show The Sinner.

When it comes to his personal life, he notably fought Hodgkin's lymphoma, something he struggled with during the middle of the series.
In 2015, he announced he was married to Natasha Gregson Wagner by changing his status to "husband" on Twitter. The two welcomed their first child in 2012.

Collins brought an expansive resume to the series. He got his start on The Waltons, which could be considered the first version of 7th Heaven. But while he played a reverend on the series, the real-life 7th Heaven patriarch didn't act like one. While the actor continued to work following the close of the Camden story, with credits on shows like Falling Skies and Scandal, in 2014 his career hit a halt.
He admitted to People magazine to having committed inappropriate sexual conduct with minors.

The Camden girls sure do like to pose for magazines. In 2013, Mackenzie Rosman, who played Ruthie on the series, posed for Maxim. However, it was less controversial than when her on-screen sister, Jessica Biel, posed for the March 2000 issue of Gear, infuriating the 7th Heaven producers.
In addition to occasional photo shoots, Rosman also raises money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and is a supporter of organ donation. You can follow her on her website.
