"House M.D." ended in 2012, but fans still love the show, rewatch it once in a while, and we surely want to know more about the actors.

There is still so much to know about the series' stars. Let's see what the actors and actresses from one of the most-watched TV shows have been up to since it ended.

Robert Sean Leonard as Dr. James Wilson

Wilson was House's only true friend, just like Dr. Watson was the only person who could tolerate the behavior of his obnoxious friend, Sherlock Holmes.

 Wilson was loyal to House, and he would go through great lengths to support him, even in difficult times. He also accompanied him in some of the funniest and most adventurous moments of the show and pranked each other quite a few times.

Robert Sean Leonard, who portrayed the altruistic doctor, is good friends with Laurie in real life, too. No wonder they had such great chemistry on-screen!

He was already famous before playing Wilson, thanks to his works in "Dead Poets Society" and "Much Ado About Nothing."

Since the series ended, the actor has been focusing on theatre work and only had a few roles on TV, including "Falling Skies," where he played a doctor again, "The Good Wife," and a recurring part in "Law & Order: SVU." 

 Leonard is married to athlete Gabriella Salick, and they have two daughters together, whom they want to raise away from the glitz and glamour of Hollywood for them to have a simpler life. He shared:

"I'm so looking forward to skate keys and homework and driving her to soccer and being back in New Jersey, and just being home."

Lisa Edelstein as Dr. Lisa Cuddy

To the disappointment of some fans, Dr. Lisa Cuddy didn't return to the show's final season and didn't even appear in the series finale. Nevertheless, everyone still remembers her prominent character on "House."

Jesse Spencer as Dr. Robert Chase

The Aussie actor Spencer played the role of Chase, a member of House's team, who became the new Head of Diagnostic Medicine after House faked his death. Chase always followed House's instructions and seemed to trust his judgments the most, even in morally questionable situations.
