This may come as a shock, but Dove Cameron is turning 25 years old on January 15, 2021! The actress was only 17 when she starred in Liv and Maddie, and we cannot believe how fast time has flown by. It may feel like just yesterday that we were watching the hilarious twins on our TV screens, but it’s actually been more than seven years since it premiered! Wow, now we feel old.
For those who forgot, the Disney show aired its first episode on July 19, 2013. It went on for four epic seasons before it came to an end on March 24, 2017, and since then, not a day has gone by that we don’t miss it. It also starred Joey Bragg, Tenzing Norgay Trainor, Kali Rocha, Benjamin King, Jessica Marie Garcia and Ryan McCartan, and it was all about two twins — a high school student living in Wisconsin and a Hollywood actress — who were forced to live together again after years of leading separate lives.
But wait, was is the cast up to now — almost a decade after the show came out?! We went ahead and investigated, and boy, have they all changed a lot over the years! Here’s what the stars of Liv and Maddie are doing these days…

Liv and Maddie was just the beginning for Cameron! She went on to star in the Descendants movies, The Lodge, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Marvel Rising: Initiation, Dumplin’, The Angry Birds Movie 2 and more. She also stepped into the world of theater, landing roles in the NBC live television presentation of Hairspray Live!, the Hollywood Bowl live production of Mamma Mia!, Clueless: The Musical and the West End’s production of Light In the Piazza. She even released a bunch of songs of her own, so it’s clear that there’s nothing she can’t do!
