All That was ahead of its time in so many ways. It featured a diverse cast of talented young actors who were adept at sketch comedy and satire. If you've ever wondered where that loveable cast ended up, you might be surprised at the trajectories of their respective careers. Years have passed, but many of the actors still perform.

The beloved Nickelodeon series was on the air for 10 years and employed a bunch of youngsters over that time span. There were a dozen or so at the core of the show, though, that were particularly hard to forget.

Read on to see what those cooky kid actors are doing in their adult years.

After becoming a mother, Spears got married in 2014.
