Slide 1 of 5 | View On One Page

The tale of “Cinderella” has been told time and time again, but it got one of its best teen romantic comedy re-tellings back in 2004 with Mark Rosman’s A Cinderella Story. The film was an instant hit with young audiences thanks to excellent casting which included Hilary Duff and Chad Michael Murray, as well as hilarious veterans stars such as Regina King and Jennifer Coolidge. While it got negative reviews from critics, it ended up making almost $71 million worldwide, well above the $20 million budget, and garnering three sequels, none of which lived up to the first. Since it has incredibly been 13 years since the movie premiered, now is a great time to take a look at how far the cast has come since.

9. Simon Helberg

Back in 2004, Simon Helberg was still up and coming and trying to find his way in acting and following roles in Van Wilder: Party Liason and Old School. He showed up in A Cinderella Story as Terry, a high school friend in love with Sam Montgomery (Hilary Duff). Now, however, many forget everything that came in Helberg’s career before as he stole the show as one of the stars of the hit series The Big Bang Theory, playing Howard Wolowitz since the series began in 2007. Thanks to the success of the show, Helberg has only had a few acting credits along with it, including lending his voice to the animated series Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness. In 2007 he married his wife Jocelyn Towne with whom he shares children, Adeline, 4, and Wilder, 1.

8. Andrea Avery

For A Cinderella Story, Andrea Avery starred as one of he mean stepsisters, Gabriella. Along with appearing in the short film Soul to Take, two episodes of The Division, and The First Daughter and Muse, that is all there is to Avery’s acting career. She seemingly stepped back to focus on activism and also published a children’s book The Feathers of Vaceilia in order to raise awareness of modern day slavery for youth. She married her husband on March 17, 2012 and the pair have welcomed two children together.
