The comment section was soon overtaken with shoutouts from her fans and followers, who wanted to praise her for looking good. While one person told her that she looked “adorable,” another wrote that Julie was a “riot.”

[Julie's] on-screen husband, Dr. Jason Seaver [played by Alan Thicke], moved on to host several pageants and TV events. He is also the father of multitalented Robin and Brennan Thick.

A third fan dropped multiple fire emojis, and a few other followers stated that they were happy to see her face. Since her appearance in “Growing Pains,” Julie has acted in a series of other films.

According to her IMDb page, she has acting credits for her roles on “The Blob,” “2012: Ice Age,” and “Top of the World.” As for the other stars from the beloved sitcom, Good Housekeeping shared an update via a 2015 report.

The site noted that after the show ended, Joanna Kerns [who played the role of Maggie Seaver] focused on a directing career. Over the last two decades, Joanna has directed episodes of shows such as “Grey's Anatomy,” “ER,” “Army Wives,” and “Private Practice.”

Meanwhile, their first on-screen child, Mike [played by Kirk Cameron], became a born-again Christian who started a career in independent films that are focused on the Evangelical Christian community.

Even though Elizabeth Ward was initially cast for the role of the Seaver middle child, Carol, it eventually went to Tracey Gold — who won the hearts of many from the get-go. Kirk and Tracey couldn’t have asked for better tv-siblings as they were familiar with each other before “Growing Pains.”

Fox News reported that Kirk disclosed that he and Tracey worked together on an ’80s McDonalds' commercial that saw them acting as brother and sister. The commercial shoot reportedly occurred roughly three years before “Growing Pains” began its 7-season run on ABC.
