7th Heaven cast: Where are they now?
Keeping up with the Camdens! Find out what the cast of the family drama has been up to.
7th Heaven, then and now
Family-friendly teen series 7th Heaven ended its 11-season run on May 13, 2007 (the stars celebrated the 20th anniversary of the premiere in 2016). Catch up with the cast of the WB/CW drama ahead.
Catherine Hicks (Annie Camden)
Catherine Hicks — who played Camden family matriarch Annie — was active in both film and TV when she joined 7th Heaven in 1996, and had been nominated for a Primetime Emmy for her performance as Marilyn Monroe in the 1980 TV movie Marilyn: The Untold Story.
Since then, she has worked largely in TV films like A Christmas Reunion (2015) and Honeymoon From Hell (2016), and has lent her voice to the series Coming to the Stage and JJ Villard's Fairy Tales.
Hicks is married to special effects makeup artist Kevin Yaeger, whom she met in 1988 on the set of Child's Play.
Barry Watson (Matt Camden)
After a handful of credits in the early-'90s, Barry Watson was cast as Matt, the Camdens' oldest child. Shortly after 7th Heaven's finale, he starred on the TV series What About Brian and Samantha Who?.
Throughout the years, Watson has racked up several onscreen credits, such as recurring roles on Gossip Girl, Hart of Dixie, and Masters of Sex, and starring roles on the one-season series Date My Dad and Naomi, as well as some film projects like 2019's A Dog's Way Home.
Jessica Biel (Mary Camden)
Jessica Biel played Mary, the black sheep of the Camden family. Since 7th Heaven, she has had one of the most prolific careers of the main cast, primarily in film.
Her post-Camden credits include The A-Team (2010), New Year's Eve (2011), Total Recall (2012), Hitchcock (2012), A Kind of Murder (2016), and Shock and Awe (2017). However, Biel returned to the small screen and landed leading roles on The Sinner (for which she was nominated for an Emmy), Limetown, and Candy. She also married Justin Timberlake in 2012 — you may have heard about that.
Beverley Mitchell (Lucy Camden)
Since playing middle sibling Lucy, Beverley Mitchell has accrued credits on the big and small screens.
Mitchell had a regular role on The Secret Life of the American Teenager from 2011 to 2013, appeared in a handful of TV movies, and played a heightened version of herself in the comedy series Hollywood Darlings, alongside fellow TV child stars Jodie Sweetin and Christine Lakin.
The actress also released a self-titled country album in 2007.
David Gallagher (Simon Camden)
David Gallagher played Simon, the fourth-oldest Camden kid, on 7th Heaven.
Since then, he has appeared on the TV series Smallville, The Vampire Diaries, Criminal Minds, CSI, and S.W.A.T., among others, as well as in J.J. Abrams' 2011 sci-fi thriller Super 8.
Since 2002, Gallagher has performed the voice of the character Riku in the Kingdom Hearts video game franchise.
Mackenzie Rosman (Ruthie Camden)
Mackenzie Rosman got her first credit playing the Camdens' fifth-oldest (and longtime youngest) child Ruthie on 7th Heaven.
Now an adult, the actress had a guest role on The Secret Life of the American Teenager and appeared in the 2013 horror films Nightcomer, Beneath, and Ghost Shark, the latter of which was a TV movie.
In 2022, Rosman gave birth to a daughter.
Nikolas and Lorenzo Brino (David and Sam Camden)
Nikolas and Lorenzo Brino played the Camdens' two youngest children, twins David and Sam, who were born during the series' third season. Originally, Nikolas, Lorenzo, and their two fellow quadruplet brothers played the twins, but, as the babies grew up, Nikolas and Lorenzo became the official David and Sam, which was their last acting credit listed for each of them.
In 2020, Lorenzo died in a car accident at 21 years old.
Stephen Collins (Rev. Eric Camden)
Before playing Protestant minister and Camden family patriarch Eric on 7th Heaven, Stephen Collins had an impressive résumé that included roles in films like All the President's Men (1976) and Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979).
After the show wrapped, Collins continued to act on the small screen with appearances on Private Practice, No Ordinary Family, Devious Maids, and Revolution.
But it was his personal life that overshadowed his career when, in 2014, Collins admitted to sexually abusing three underage women. He later released a public apology, stating: "I deeply regret the mistakes I've made and any pain I have caused these three women. I admit to, apologize for, and take responsibility for what I did."
George Stults (Kevin Kinkirk)
Before joining the cast of 7th Heaven in 2002 to play Kevin Kinkirk, police officer and Lucy's eventual husband, George Stults appeared on such early-2000s staples as Will & Grace and Friends.
Post-Heaven, his credits include appearances on the series Zoo and Melissa & Joey, and in a handful of holiday flicks, such as Christmas With the Andersons (2016), Staging Christmas (2019), Hope for the Holidays (2020), and A New Lease on Christmas (2021).
Adam LaVorgna (Robbie Palmer)
Adam LaVorgna played Mary Camden's on-and-off boyfriend Robbie Palmer on 7th Heaven. Before he was cast on the show, he had already built up his TV résumé with a job playing young Frank Sinatra in the miniseries Sinatra and a role on the series Brooklyn Bridge.
Since 7th Heaven, his TV credits include appearances on Law & Order: Criminal Intent, Cold Case, CSI: Miami, and Power. He has also taken on a number of film projects.
Tyler Hoechlin (Martin Brewer)
Before 7th Heaven, Tyler Hoechlin had his first major role as Tom Hanks' young son in 2002's Road to Perdition. He entered the Camdens' world in the eighth season as Martin Brewer.
Hoechlin has since had success on the big screen in Everybody Wants Some!! (2016), Fifty Shades Freed (2018), Can You Keep a Secret? (2019), Palm Springs (2020), and Teen Wolf: The Movie (2023). On TV, he played Derek Hale in the first four seasons of Teen Wolf — also returning for the show's final season — and played Superman on Supergirl and Superman & Lois.
Christopher Michael (Police Chief Michaels)
Christopher Michael played Police Chief Michaels on 7th Heaven after having already racked up dozens of TV credits on a variety of shows.
After leaving Glen Oak, his résumé included a recurring role on The Secret Life of the American Teenager, as well as appearances on iCarly, Pretty Little Liars, Grey's Anatomy, Parenthood, Castle, Community, and GLOW, among other shows.
Rachel Blanchard (Roxanne Richardson)
Before she joined 7th Heaven as Kevin's partner Roxanne, Rachel Blanchard was already a noteworthy TV actress for having been one of the original main cast members of Are You Afraid of the Dark? and having starred as Cher in the TV adaptation of the film Clueless from 1996 to 1999.
Her other TV credits include appearances on Psych and Another Period, a recurring role on the first season of Fargo, and starring roles on You Me Her and The Summer I Turned Pretty. She also appeared in the 2022 film Deep Water.
Ashlee Simpson (Cecilia Smith)
Though better known as a musician, Jessica Simpson's little sister Ashlee appeared on 7th Heaven as Simon's girlfriend Cecilia from 2002 to 2004 before releasing her debut album, Autobiography, in 2004.
She has since released two more solo albums, 2005's I Am Me and 2008's Bittersweet World; performed as a musical guest on Saturday Night Live twice; starred in various productions of the musical Chicago as Roxie Hart; appeared as herself on Punk'd, America's Next Top Model, and her own reality series with husband Evan Ross (Ashlee+Evan), among other shows; and had a lead role on the short-lived 2009 reboot of Melrose Place.
Jeremy London (Chandler Hampton)
Jeremy London played Chandler Hampton, the minister who temporarily replaced and then assisted Eric Camden, on 7th Heaven.
Before he visited Glen Oak, he had recurring roles on Party of Five and I'll Fly Away, among other TV appearances. He has accrued dozens of film and TV credits since 7th Heaven, including Tell Me You Love Me, MacGyver, and more.

Before she joined the cast of 7th Heaven in its 10th season as Sandy, Simon's fiancée's best friend, Haylie Duff had appeared on American Dreams, Joan of Arcadia, and Lizzie McGuire, which starred her sister Hilary. She was perhaps best known, though, for her role in the 2004 sleeper hit Napoleon Dynamite.
