Family sitcoms that resemble “real life” are always a hit and remain close to our hearts! Many of those shows had the power to run for numerous seasons, but there was something different about George Lopez.
Feeling nostalgic yet? The hilarious pop culture phenomena, which ran from 2002-2007, definitely made days brighter with its unforgettable life lessons and peculiar jokes. Over a decade later, and watching reruns of the sitcom still has an effect on us. Since it was also a fictionalized show based on George Lopez, it was incredibly easy to fall in love with the characters of the hearty show. We know, you’re thinking exactly what we’re thinking: Where are they now?
Read on to discover what the talented cast of the sitcom has been up to.
Any good news about the cast of the show that went off the air 14 years ago is heartwarming.
Despite the pandemic, photos of the cast have been shared on Instagram by those we used to rush home to watch weekly. Made up of faces we’ll never forget, like Constance Marie, Masiela Lusha, and Luis Armand Garcia, it’s refreshing to hear that they all still share an inseparable bond. Lopez, despite being a family man, makes time for those he cherishes.
An Instagram selfie that was posted by Marie, with her fellow costars, was captioned, “It was that time we all went to George Lopez’s house to work on a top-secret mission. Love them all!!” Does this mean something is in the works?
What happened to Carmen, the daughter in the 2000s-era ABC sitcom?
If you rediscovered the show lately, because we’ve all been pretty much binge-watching television, you may have recalled that Carmen, played by Masiela Lusha, was not present in the final season.
Although the actress addressed her departure from the show, since her exit, she has landed some incredible television and movie roles. You may have caught glimpses of her in Anger Management, as well as three Sharknado films. She couldn’t stay away from her television father too long and was also in George’s Lopez.
She also pursued another lifelong passion: poetry.
The show that graced our screens also had Constance Marie play the role of Angie Lopez. The fan-favorite has been keeping quite busy since the end of the show that kept us company on school nights.
She went on to land the infamous role of Regina Vasquez in the beloved Switched at Birth – where she again stole our hearts. The multitalented actress starred in Elena of Avalor and Puss in Boots as well.
