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.Photo by MediaPunch/REX Shutterstock
