10 Things You Didn’t Know About 7th Heaven
“7th Heaven” was one of those shows that really made you wish you were part of another family – the Camden family to be precise. The parents, Eric and Annie, were pretty awesome. They always offered their kids good advice with love and understanding regardless of the situation. The show touched on some tough issues that adolescents face and even showed us what the consequences of reckless and irresponsible behavior looked like without ever seeming preachy. They don’t really make TV like this anymore, so we figured that now would be a good time to take a look at some things about the show that we didn’t know!
Before landing her role on “7th Heaven,” the Camden’s family dog, also known as Happy, was a stray. She was reportedly abused by her former male owner and wasn’t especially trusting of men. Before taping a new season, Stephen Collins and Barry Watson would have to spend some time with her so that she could get used to them before filming.
George Stults’ brother already had a recurring role on “7th Heaven” as Mary Camden’s love interest Ben when he auditioned for the role of a kid who forces people to drink. Geoff didn’t get that part, but he was later cast as Ben’s older brother Kevin. He remained a regular cast member from season six until season 11.
