Where are the cast of Roseanne now? – From the late 80s pas the mid 90s the Conners graced our screens as a much loved family. Most of us old enough remember them well but where are they all now?
Where are the cast of Roseanne now?
Roseanne Conner: Played by Roseanne Barr was a known standup before the whole sitcom thing so the loved star returned to those roots when the show finished. She then ended up back on TV on talk shows and eventually in Reality TV as her and her family ran her Macadamia nut farm! You can almost see that she did that just to own a ‘ nut farm’. She has also been a successful author and had a flubbed but obviously satirical run for president in 2012.
Dan Conner: Easily the most successful of the show’s actors he is much loved and often cast with hilarious results but has more than proved himself as a deep lovable and serious actor too. With recent roles in movies like Argo and shows like Treme I don’t think he will be leaving our screens anytime soon. Still one of my favorite roles of his was in The Big Lebowski!
D.J. Conner: Played by Michel Fishman who said he was devastated when the show ended! He returned to and finished school and did bit parts here and there more recently appearing with Roseanne in her Roseanne show and the nut farm show. He is said to be getting technical skills to work behind the scenes, write, direct and is taking acting classes to get back into acting.
Darlene Conner: Darlene was portrayed by Sara Gilbert. Sara has spurts on ER and more recently as a on off character in the Big Bang theory. She is still instantly recognisable as that sarcastic kid though!
Becky Conner: Becky was portrayed by two actresses throughout the show much due to the college needs of first actress Lecy Goranson. Sarah Chalke was the other actress to play the role. Lecy went onto mostly play bit parts and cropped up in Sex and the City, Law and Order and Fringe. Sarah is possibly even more well known post-Roseanne as her role playing Dr Elliot Reid but has also been in shows such as How I Met Your Mother and Cougar Town.
So that is just a few of the great cast, it’s interesting delving into the directions people take after a big show and how it seems to either make or break an actor! More about these characters and ones not mentioned can be found here.
