Take A Look Back At The 'Mrs. Doubtfire' Cast 24 Years Later

Mrs. Doubtfire is without a doubt one of the best comedy-dramas to have ever graced the big screen. From Robin Williams's seamless portrayal of two characters, a father and husband going through a divorce, and a British nanny desperate to spend time with the kids.  

Not only has the movie made us laugh every single time we have watched it since its release in 1993, it has also delivered some very important messages that continue to inspire us over two decades later.


Of course, when we talk about the movie, we can't help but think about what the beloved cast have been up to over the last 24 years. Let's find out what's going on with the Hillards and the rest of the cast, shall we?

Mrs. Doubtfire/Mr. Hillard - Robin Williams

As we're all already aware, the legendary Robin Williams, who played both the goofy but doting Mr. Hillard and the charming title character, Mrs. Euphegenia Doubtfire, passed away in 2014.

His legacy, however, lives on through his incredible work in film, stand-up comedy, and philanthropy.

The multiple award-winning iconic actor continued to take part in many critically acclaimed movies like Good Will hunting, Awakenings, and Jumanji. His final film, Boulevard, hit theaters nearly a year after his shocking death.

Miranda Hillard - Sally Field

Sally Field took on the role of the career-oriented but loving matriarch who fell out of love with her husband because he didn't take life too seriously?

Since wrapping up the movie, Field has gone on to appear in many other highly successful movies including Forrest Gump, Lincoln, and Hello, My Name is Doris. The two-time Academy Award winner also has a lot of TV credits to her name including her Emmy-winning roles in ER and Brothers & Sisters.


The 70-year-old actress took a break for a while, but she made her return in Little Evil, a Netflix horror comedy film that was released on September 1, 2017.

Lydia Hillard - Lisa Jakub


Lydia Hillard was the oldest of the Hillard children. She had a hard time accepting her parents breakup, and resented Mrs. Doubtfire, but as time went by she grew to love her.

Lisa Jakub was only 14 when she took on the role in 1993. She went on to appear in other 90s movies, including A Walk on the Moon and Independence Day before retiring from acting in 2001.


Jakub got married a few years after leaving Hollywood, and now works as a writer. She published her autobiography, You Look Like That Girl, in 2015.

The other Hillard siblings also remained in the spotlight for sometime after Mrs. Doubtfire was released and found success in many different ways.

Matthew Lawrence - Christopher "Chris" Hillard

Middle child Chris was the first to find out that Mrs. Doubtfire wasn't who she claimed to be when he busted her taking a piss while standing up.

Matthew Lawrence, who portrayed the angst-filled teen in the movie, is part of the Lawrence brothers trio who dominated the 90s. From 1997 to 2000, starred as Jack Hunter on sitcom Boy Meets World. He also worked alongside his famous brothers, Andrew and Joey, in Brotherly Love and had parts in Melissa & Joey.

Lawrence has remained off-screen since 2015, only making occasional appearances at red carpet events. He has been in an on and off relationship with Dancing with the Stars pro dancer Cheryl Burke since 2007.

Mara Wilson - Natalie Hillard


Daddy's sweet little girl, Natalie was portrayed by Mara Wilson. The child actress found success in her future roles in Miracle on 34th Street and Matilda.


Despite winning over people with her iconic roles, Wilson lost her passion for acting after her mother's death in 1996. She quit acting in 2000 to pursue a degree at the New York University. She now focuses on writing, and her career at Publicor. She's still entertaining the masses through her recurring role on the podcast Welcome to Nightvale and BoJack Horseman. She also made a rare TV appearance in 2016 on an episode of Broad City.

Stu Dunmyer - Pierce Brosnan

Miranda's old-turned-new lover won over the Hillard children and their mom at first, but things didn't seem to end well after he choked on his food at the restaurant.


Pierce Brosnan, who played Stu, landed the lead role in the iconic James Bond movies, then later appeared in The Thomas Crown Affair, The Matador and Mamma Mia!. The actor is still starring in TV shows and films including a Mamma Mia! sequel scheduled to be released in 2018.

Frank Hillard - Harvey Fiersten


The movie wouldn't be the same without Frank, Daniel's brother and the talented man behind Mrs. Doubtfire's impeccable disguise. I could never get tired of watching him bring Mrs. Doubtfire to life in that transformation scene.

Like Jakub, Harvey Fierstein also appeared in Independence Day, along with other films like Dr. Jekyll and Ms. Hyde. The actor also went on to play Edna Turnblad in Hairspray Live! and made cameos in Nurse Jackie, The Good Wife and How I Met Your Mother.
