It has been 15 years since the Golden Globe and Emmy Award-winning series “Frasier" aired its finale, yet fans of the show still remember it like it was yesterday.


One of the most intellectual shows that aired on television was the award-winning series "Frasier," that was but a spin-off of the '80s sitcom "Cheers."

"Frasier" was an instant hit among television watchers and ran for 11 seasons with several recognitions, including 37 Emmy Awards and holds the title for most consecutive wins for Outstanding Comedy Series.

While the storyline of the show was undoubtedly brilliant, the show's success can be highly credited to its stellar cast, who each had their own nominations and awards. Here's what they've been up to.

The show starred Kelsey Grammer as Frasier Crane, a psychiatrist who also has a radio therapy show of his own after dealing with a divorce that forced him to relocate across the country.

He has since won a Golden Globe, a Tony Award, and an Emmy Award for his incredible acting skills. Grammer is also the voice behind "The Simpsons" Bob.

Grammer also appeared on television shows, including "Boss," "Back to You," "Partners," "The Last Tycoon," and "Hank."

He also appeared in films including "X-Men: The Last Stand," "X-Men: Days of Future Past," "Transformers: Age of Extinction," "Swing Vote," and "The Expendables 3."

The multi-talented actor also produced the shows "Medium," "The Game," "Partners," and "Girlfriends" and has joined Broadway productions, including "Beauty and the Beast," "Big Fish," and "Finding Neverland."

As for his personal life, Grammer married "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Camile Grammer, but divorced her after 13 years. In 2011, he tied the knot with Kayte Walsh and had three kids together.

David Hyde Pierce played the role of Dr. Niles Crane, Frasier's younger brother who is also in the medical field with the profession on neurology.

Pierce focused much on his career after the show's end, specifically on Broadway productions like "It's a Wonderful Life," "Children and Art," "Monty Python's Spamalot," and "Curtains," which he won a Tony Award for.

The entertainer made a bold move in 2007 by coming out as a gay man, years after speculation regarding his sexuality.


The following year, he came back to perform in a comedic musical, "Forever Plaid" and "Accent on Youth." In 2014, he appeared on "The Good Wife" as Frank Prady.


After the show ended, John Mahoney, who played the former cop father of Frasier and Niles, Martin, had a few television appearances, including "ER," "Burn Notice," and "Treatment."

The Tony Award-winning actor also appeared in a few episodes of "Hot in Cleveland," and was part of the 2013 production "The Birthday Party" in Chicago.

In 2015, Mahoney had his curtain call on screen in "Foyle's War," and later his last production in "The Rembrandt." Sadly, the actor passed away on February 4, 2018, after suffering from lung cancer.


Daphne Moon, a housekeeper and physical therapist, was beautifully portrayed by Jane Leeves. Towards the end of the series, she fell in love with Dr. Crane and eventually became his bride.

Although she hasn't appeared much on-screen, she utilized her voice to play the voice-overs in animated productions, including "Garfield 2," "Phineas and Ferb," "The Penguins of Madagascar," "Mickey and the Roadster Racers," and "Lego Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures."

Her on-screen appearances include "Hot in Cleveland," "The Starter Wife," "Desperate Housewives," and "Misconceptions."


Last year, Leeves played the character of Dr. Kit Voss on Fox's medical-drama show "The Resident" and will appear in an ABC TV film alongside Hannah Simone.


Peri Gilpin played Frasier's producer, Roz Doyle, who later became the doctor's close friend. She has since focused on her career in the industry with appearances on "Desperate Housewives," "Law & Order: Criminal Intent," and "Grey's Anatomy," among many others.

In 2009, she appeared in a Geffen Playhouse production called "Matthew Modine Saves the Alpacas." After, she continued appearing on shows like "Men at Work," "Mr. Robinson," "'Break a Hip," and "Scorpion."

Gilpin made it to the big screen in 2018, where she appeared on "How to Train Your Husband" and "Only Humans."
