Cast Of Friday Night Lights: Where Are They Now?
Let’s face it, if we had it our way Friday Night Lights would still be running new seasons on TV as the five seasons it did get seemed much too short to begin with. It has now been over four years since we have had to say goodbye to our favorite Dillon Panthers and East Dillon Lions, not to mention the best on-screen coach of all-time, and while some have continued making shows and movies, others have seemingly disappeared. Unlike many series, Friday Night Lights, had a long list of cast members, especially after they introduced a whole new football team in season 4. Regardless we miss them all and wanted to check out what they were up to after being a part of one of the best sports drama series on TV.
Connie Britton (Tami Taylor)
Connie Britton, 48, will always be thought of as one of the best TV moms and wives after her performance as Tami Taylor on Friday Night Lights. After playing the wife of Coach Gary Gaines for the 2004 film version, Britton was brought on for the same role in the TV adaptaion, and there was no better pair than Britton and Kyle Chandler (Coach Eric Taylor). Of course the stunning and talented actress has continued working since appearing in several movies and TV shows including a starring role in ABC’s hit show Nashville and has also signed on for another season of American Crime Story. As an activist Britton became the 10th Goodwill Ambassador of the United Nations Development Programme in April 2014. In her role Britton works to eradicate poverty, fight exclusion and empower women, and we couldn’t think of anyone better for the job.
Aimee Teegarden (Julie Taylor)
Probably the least liked TV daughter of all time, Aimee Teegarden, 25, defined annoying in her role as Eric and Tami Taylor’s daughter Julie. Regardless, she was a big part of the show as her relationship with Matt lasted as a central focus through all of the seasons, winning her the award of TV Actress of the Year in 2011 by Young Hollywood Actors. Since the end of the show, she has also continued working, appearing in films such Scream 4, Prom and Love and Honor with Liam Hemsworth. She got a starring role in a new CW series, Star-Crossed, but it was cancelled after only one season in 2014. She most recently has been cast in the next installment of The Ring franchise, starring in Rings scheduled to hit theatres in late 2015.
