Sure, The Brady Bunch probably holds the title of most popular show about a blended family, but Step by Step might have taken in from the Bradys for a few years in the '90s. Certainly one of the best TGIF shows of the era, Step by Step had a huge cast, with lots of memorable characters. So what is the Step by Step cast up to now?
Starring Patrick Duffy as Frank Lambert and Suzanne Somers as Carol Foster, these two single parents, lost their inhibitions (and minds) in Jamaica and decided to get married much like a lot of really drunk celebrities do. Back in their fictional world of Port Washington the Step by Step TV show followed what came next, which was mostly their respective children (who don’t like each other) being like, “Wut?!" And then the hijinks and lessons of the week ensued.
The show came about because the television production company Lorimar contractually owed Duffy a show after Dallas ended. So producers came up with putting together two of the most popular TV actors of the late '70s and early '80s, along with the most popular teen actors of the 90s to create a soufflé of family TV-viewing awesomeness. The show ran for seven seasons.But where are all the Lamberts and Fosters today? Cody, Al, Dana, and JT have all gone on to many different ranges of success, failure, and just plain getting out of Hollywood altogether. So where is the cast of Step by Step now? Read on to find out!
Before she was Carol, Somers was Chrissy Snow on Three’s Company, the '80s version of Judy Holiday. Even though her run on the show ended very messily with contract and money disputes, Somers will forever be the girl who knew how to wear that top ponytail. She has been dubbed Queen of the Informercial and has shilled everything from anti-aging cream to the Thighmaster.Somers is made of teflon and not only survived breast cancer, but also her controversial stances on several issues, such as medicine, and she has criticized the American Cancer Society. She is also opposed to water fluoridation. In 2013, she suggested that Sandy Hook Elementary School shooter Adam Lanza was under the influence of toxins from household cleaners and food preservatives. Oy. Somers has also been a favorite target of South Park. see more on Suzanne Somers
Coming off of the successful My Two Dads, Keanan was the hot ticket to play Dana on Step by Step. Keanan went on to perform in films Hidden Secrets and Death and Cremation. In 2010, she made an appearance with Step by Step co-stars Patrick Duffy and Christine Lakin in the film You Again.
She changed her name to Stacy in 1997 because that’s the Hollywood version of going into the witness protection program/falling off the face of the earth.see more on Staci Keanan
Before Step by Step, Duffy played Mitchell's uncle on Dallas. Today, he is completely transformed from the clean-cut, lovable, Valley-speaking giant of the '90s to a body building, martial artist, bulked-up mountain. Since Step by Step, Mitchell has had a few roles on TV such as Gangland, JAG, NYPD Blue, and ER.
He’s mainly focused on the kickboxing world with several titles released in 2015, including The Kickboxer: City of Blood and The Kickboxer: Empire of the Dead.see more on Sasha Mitchell
