This may come as a shock, but Olivia Holt is turning 24 years old on August 5, 2021! The actress was only 13 when she starred in Kickin’ It, which means it has been more than 10 years since the Disney XD show aired — wow, can you believe how fast time has flown by?! It feels like just yesterday that we were watching Jack, Milton, Jerry, Rudy, Kim and the rest of the gang on our TV screens, and now, we seriously feel so old!
For those who forgot, the series premiered in June 2011 and went on for four seasons before it concluded in March 2015. Besides Holt, it also starred Leo Howard, Dylan Riley Snyder, Mateo Arias, Alex Christian, Jason Earles and Brooke Dillman and it was all about a group of kids who were studying karate together while trying to save their dojo — Bobby Wasabi Martial Arts Academy — from closing. It was definitely a huge part of a lot of our childhoods, so the fact that it’s already been more than a decade since it came out is mind blowing!
But wait, what are the stars of the show up to these days, you ask? Well, in honor of Holt’s birthday we decided to check in on them all, and boy, have they come a long way! Some went on to land some pretty major roles, while others launched huge music careers! And get this — some of them are actually married now! Here’s what the cast of Kickin’ It is doing now…
What Is Leo Howard Doing Now?
Kickin’ It was just the beginning for Howard! He went on to star in Andron, You’re Gonna Miss Me, Freakish, WTH: Welcome to Howler, Santa Clarita Diet, A Lover Scorned, Why Women Kill, Legacies and more. But that’s not all. He also joined a band called Ask Jonesy & Company and they released their debut album, called AJ&Co, Vol. 1, in 2018! And get this — he’s still working on his martial arts, and he recently became a black belt in jiu jitsu. As for his love life, he’s currently dating actress Natasha Hall and they couldn’t be cuter together.
What Is Dylan Riley Snyder Doing Now?
After Kickin’ It came to an end, Snyder most famously went on to star in the series Astrid Clover, but he also appeared in movies like Mamaboy, Flock of Four and more. Plus, he’s currently got two new flicks in the works — Crabs! and C.O.R.N. — so keep your eyes peeled for him. He also started his own production company, called Watch The Footage Productions, and has produced a few short films over the years. According to his Instagram, he’s very passionate about the ocean and spends much of his time trying to clean it up. Plus, he married Sonny With A Chance alum Allisyn Ashley Arm in September 2019.
What Is Mateo Arias Doing Now?
Arias may always be Jerry in fans’ hearts, however, that didn’t stop him from accomplishing a lot after his Disney days! He continued to act, appearing in movies and TV shows like First Girl I Loved, Good Kids, The Samuel Project, Blast Beat and more. He also stepped into the music industry! His debut album, ¿Téo?, dropped in 2018, and his second LP, Sol, came out two years later — and they were both filled with bops.
What Is Olivia Holt Doing Now?
Holt did not slow down after Kickin’ It. She landed roles in I Didn’t Do It, The Standoff, Class Rank, Same Kind of Different as Me, Gnome Alone, Status Update, Cloak & Dagger, Trouble, Turkey Drop, Cruel Summer and others. Oh and did we mention that she released three albums over the years?! She was briefly linked to Taylor Lautner in 2017, but now, she’s dating a musician named Tony Ferrari.
What Is Alex Christian Doing Now?
Christian actually doesn’t use social media much, so it’s hard to say what he’s up to these days. He didn’t act in anything after his time in Kickin’ It, and he reportedly stepped out of the spotlight so he could focus on his education. And in 2014, he got accepted into The University of Alabama. Congrats!
