You know you loved the Disney Movie Channel, don’t even try to deny it. But what happens to all those kids who starred in all those movies?
A whole bunch of different stuff, it turns out! Here’s an update on 10 people who you’ll remember from the Disney Movie Channel’s past.
1. Kimberly J. Brown from Halloweentown
Brown is still acting, has her own YouTube channel, and is actually dating actor Daniel Kountz, her co-star in Halloweentown II.
2. Kirsten Storms from Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century
Storms now stars on General Hospital and she’s a mother.
3. Ryan Merriman from Smart House/Luck of the Irish/A Ring of Endless Light
Merriman is still acting and, judging by his IMDB page, he’s keeping very busy with roles.
4. Chez Starbuck from The Thirteenth Year
Starbuck lives in Texas and is a husband and a father. He doesn’t appear to currently be acting, but he had this to say about being a child actor: “I think it would have been better if I had led up into it (acting) by doing other smaller stuff and then actually got into a bigger role. (After landing a starring role right out of the gate) It psyches you up like, ‘Now I can just go out and get a whole other bunch of stuff.’ But it’s not like that.”
5. Andrew Lawrence from The Other Me
Lawrence has two famous actor brothers, Joey (“woah!”) and Matthew, and the three of them have a band called Still 3. Andrew is still acting as well.
6. Erin Chambers from Don’t Look Under the Bed

This is Karyn. I love her. For many, many reasons. Because she is kind and considerate and because she is infinitely cuddle-able. Because of how she treats me and treats herself, her friends, her family, strangers on the street. Because she is smart and funny and sexy. Because she rivals me as a voracious sleeper and because she has fantastic taste in music. She likes who she is and knows who she is and knows how to find her happiness, which in turn produces a power and wisdom that is palpably alluring, and unique to her. She’s honest and trusting and trustworthy. Curious and mindful. Independent and brave. Cool as fuck. And she has the best laugh in the whole world. We give each other calmness and strength and love. She has a 3 year old adopted daughter named Luna whom I love too (swipe right). She’s more or less a moody teenager with all the sass, but also with all the love. She typically doesn’t like men, but luckily we hit it off from the beginning and there’s a blooming respect and affection between us. Sometimes I feel weird when the three of us are out together and people can clearly tell that I’m not Luna’s Dad because I’m not a black guy. She doesn’t seem to mind, which is sweet of her. I guess we’re just the modern blended multiethnic family. She doesn’t call me Dad yet but we’ll see. What a gift it is, to fall in love. How miraculous. To not only find attraction and compatibility and partnership, but MAGIC. This mysterious, unexplainable alchemy that is felt in your core, outside of logic and reason. Intoxicating and exciting, warm and comforting. The knowing. I am truly grateful for these thoughts and these feelings and this love, and for the opportunity to express them broadly and openly. Life can be complicated and confusing and dark at times; these are the things to savor and cherish and respect. I love them and they love me and I’m happy💙
Baker is not acting currently and he lives in Colorado. Looks like he’s also in love!
9. Spencer Breslin from You Wish

10. Lindsey Haun from The Color of Friendship
Haun has an online morning talk show and has acted in the HBO hit show True Blood.
