‘The Nanny’ Cast – Where Are They Now?

If you ever wondered what happened to the cast of “The Nanny”, then wonder no more. Allie’s got you covered!

'The Nanny' Cast - Where Are They Now?

Fran Drescher – Fran Fine

'The Nanny' Cast - Where Are They Now?

She played nutty annoying voiced nanny Fran Fine on the show. In 2000, Fran was admitted into the hospital and was diagnosed with uterine cancer. She underwent a hysterectomy as a result and was deemed cancer free. She then wrote a book called “Cancer Schmancer” to empower people to realize the signs and symptoms of cancer and to raise awareness. She also runs cancerschmancer.org, a non-profit setup for people to learn about early detection.

In September 2008, Drescher, a Democrat, was appointed as a U.S. diplomat by the U.S. State Department. Her official title is Public Diplomacy Envoy for Women’s Health Issues. She eyed a congressional seat, but decided against it when Kirsten Gillibrand was appointed to succeed Hilary Clinton. In April 2010, she was the guest of honor at the Dancer Against Cancer charity ball.

Charles Shaughnessy – Maxwell Sheffield

Charles played millionaire Maxwell Sheffield on the show, but afterward he appeared in a TV movie called “Get A Clue”. After that, he also appeared on “Mom’s Got A Date With A Vampire”, “Sabrina”, “Stargate SG-1″, “Mad Men”, “Law & Order” and “CSI: NY”, to name a few. He became the fifth Baron Shaughnessy in December 2007, when his cousin passed away.

Daniel Davis – Niles

'The Nanny' Cast - Where Are They Now?

One of my favorite characters on the show, Niles, played by Daniel Davis, wasn’t always as sarcastic as he appeared. He received a nomination for Best Actor in “Wrong Mountain”. He also played Professor Moriarty in the episodes “Elementary, Dear Data” and “Ship in a Bottle” of “Star Trek: The Next Generation”.

He also appeared in “Talking Heads”, “The Frogs”, “Frasier”, “The Prestige” and “Ugly Betty”. His IMDB page lists credits all the way back to 1970. His stint on “Star Trek: TNG” was one of my favorites of the series.

Lauren Lane – Chastity Claire ‘C.C’ Babcock

'The Nanny' Cast - Where Are They Now?

Lane was married to David Wilkins. Lane has a daughter Kate (born February 23, 1998) with Wilkins.

In 2004, she appeared in the reunion of The Nanny entitled The Nanny Reunion: A Nosh to Remember, starring Fran Drescher and much of the original cast.

Nicholle Tom – Margaret ‘Maggie’ Sheffield

'The Nanny' Cast - Where Are They Now?

Tom currently stars in the IFC original The Minor Accomplishments of Jackie Woodman as Tara, an underling at a film production company.

Also, in the early 1990s, she played ‘Ryce Newton’ in the successful family movie “Beethoven” and the sequel “Beethoven’s 2nd”. She did not appear in “Beethoven’s 3rd” and “Beethoven’s 4th” as she had grown up too much for her specific role, although she did reprise her role as the voice of Ryce in the cartoon spinoff.

From 1998–2006 she provided the voice for “Supergirl in the DC Animated Universe”. In 2000, she played Sarah Bryan in the Fox Family TV film “Ice Angel” as well as Tracy in “Panic”. In 2001, she portrayed a teen reporter named Cassie in “The Princess Diaries”.

She starred in the Lifetime movie “Her Only Child”, which premiered on March 22, 2008. She guest starred alongside brother David (who played her character’s brother) in an episode of “Criminal Minds” which originally aired on April 2, 2008.

She also guest starred on an episode of “Cold Case” which aired on May 4, 2008.

Benjamin Salisbury – Brighton Sheffield

'The Nanny' Cast - Where Are They Now?

An accomplished dancer, Salisbury would often treat “The Nanny” studio audiences to improvisational routines when the cameras weren’t rolling. He also played Martin Short’s son in the 1992 film “Captain Ron”, and appeared in “D3: The Mighty Ducks” as the sports announcer.

Was also lined up to play Bart Simpson in the “Simpsons” live-action movie which was greenlit at the height of Simpsons mania in 1992.

In August 2006, Salisbury was featured in Domino’s pizza commercials featuring Fudge-ums, Domino’s then-new mini-brownies. As of 2010, he currently works for the NHL team, the Los Angeles Kings.

Madeline Zima – Grace Sheffield

'The Nanny' Cast - Where Are They Now?

Zima has become known for her work in films such as “The Hand That Rocks the Cradle” and having most recently appeared in the Hilary Duff film “A Cinderella Story” and the soon to be released films: “Dimples”, “Looking for Sunday”, “Once in a Very Blue Moon” and “Legacy” alongside Hillary Duff’s sister Haylie Duff.

In 2007, Zima played Mia Cross, a sexually precocious and worldly 16-year old, on the series “Californication”. Zima returned for a second season of “Californication” in 2008 reprising her role as bratty 17-year-old Mia. In promotion of Mia’s book, “F*cking and Punching”, Zima starred in several “Californication” webisodes that are featured on YouTube. In 2009, Zima joined the cast of “Heroes” as Gretchen, Claire Bennet’s quirky bisexual roommate and tentative love interest.

She stars as Jill in the 2009 release “The Collector”. She has two new movies coming out in 2010: “Crazy Eyes” and “Trance”.
