14 Actors Who Reprised Their Famous TV & Movie Roles … Years Later
RAVEN-SYMONÉ, THAT'S SO RAVEN
Oh snap! The child actress — who stole hearts as a kid on The Cosby Show and made us laugh hysterically on Disney Channel's That's So Raven — is going back to her acting roots, leaving her post on The View to reprise her role as Raven Baxter on a spin-off, which has the 30-year-old taking on the role of a divorced mom of two preteens — one of whom has inherited her ability to look into the future.
ALEXIS BLEDEL & LAUREN GRAHAM, GILMORE GIRLS
Clearly, fans of Gilmore Girls — which aired from 2000 to 2007 — can't get enough of the mother-daughter duo (played by Graham and Bledel): the stars are returning to Stars Hollow for a four-part special on Netflix, dropping Nov. 25.
CANDACE, JODIE & ANDREA, FULLER HOUSE
They're back! A decade after Full House's final episode aired, the girls of the family-friendly sitcom — Candace Cameron Bure (D.J. Tanner), Jodie Sweetin (Stephanie Tanner) and Andrea Barber (Kimmy Gibbler) — delighted fans when they returned to reprise their now-grown-up roles in Netflix's Fuller House.
BEN SAVAGE & DANIELLE FISHEL, GIRL MEETS WORLD
For many, Savage's Cory Matthews and Fishel's Topanga Lawrence were the epitome of #RelationshipGoals — from Boy Meets World's inception in 1993 to its heart-wrenching series finale in 2000. So it came as no surprise that the fate of TV's favorite couple was the most buzzed-about when a spin-off, Girl Meets World, was announced. The show made its debut in 2014, and continues to prove what fans have long known: Corey and Topanga are made for each other.
RENÉE ZELLWEGER & COLIN FIRTH, BRIDGET JONES'S BABY
"People do stop me in the streets to ask me about Bridget Jones," Zellweger told PEOPLE while filming the third installment of the franchise, which also features original star Colin Firth (a.k.a. Mr. Darcy), more than a decade after its sequel. "They ask me about it a lot, and it makes me smile because I love the character."
MARIO, ELIZABETH, MARK-PAUL & TIFFANI, SAVED BY THE BELL
We've never been so excited for a high school reunion! Although fans of the hit '90s show officially parted ways with the colorful cast — including Mario Lopez, Elizabeth Berkley, Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Tiffani Thiessen — in 1994, the group (excluding Dustin Diamond and Lark Voorhies) reunited for a super-memorable scene on The Tonight Show.
