It has been almost two and a half decades since Brian Krause graced our screens on "Charmed," but his career did not end there. The actor has gone on to lead a highly successful and exciting life.
Brian Krause became a familiar public figure after playing in the "Charmed" series as Whitelighter Leo Wyatt, remaining a staple character throughout the series. Outside of this famed magical persona, Krause has made many movies.
On top of this, he has also taken on cameos in "The Closer" and "Mad Men." Beyond acting, the performer has done voice work for L.A. Noire, a detective and adventure video game.

BRIAN KRAUSE AFTER "CHARMED"
One of the movies Krause starred in was the 1990's horror film "Sleepwalkers," where he took on the role of the main character Charles Brady. He is widely loved for his holiday romance films and dramatic performances.
He has also taken on a number of other series such as "Cypher" and the dramatic "Another World," in which he starred. Krause also took part in "RomaDrama Live!"
CHARMED REBOOT -- WAS LEO THERE?
Before the debut of "Charmed" came out, many fans wondered if the character Leo would come back and if Krause would be the one to play him. Courtney Lindley wrote about this, stating that the actor was too busy with other gigs to return for the reboot. In 2018, Krause spoke about the reboot himself, saying:
"It’s a compliment that they would reboot our show. It’s a compliment to what the girls created initially. You know, what all four of them did for so long and our writers created. I hope it’s a success, for sure. I think with "Charmed" there are a million storylines you can tell. With magic, anything can happen. It’s endless."
We know that Leo survived years later, but Krause does not play the character. Instead, Harry Greenwood has taken on the role to help bring forth a new generation of magic.
BRIAN KRAUSE ON WHAT SUCCESS MEANS TO HIM
Whether he plays Leo or not or has a million projects on his plate, this is not what Krause uses as a measuring stick for success. Instead, he feels that success is being content with oneself, expressing:
"I think we can have many miniature successes all day every day, and that’s the goal."
He added that success could be found in belonging to one's community, such as friends and family, and has little to do with how much money one has managed to accumulate.
DOES BRIAN KRAUSE HAVE A FAMILY?
Speaking about his version of success, although he is a private individual, it is clear that Krause has built a loving family life for himself, complete with his golden retriever "Penny" and his family in Southern California.

Two more individuals who will always be associated with a beloved show are Mindy Kaling and B.J. Novak. In the series "The Office," these two played an unhealthy yet hilarious on-again-off-again couple.
In reality, their relationship is just as curious. In response to rumors that the two were dating off set, Novak said that while filming, they were both dating and not dating and didn't know what was happening.
While Kaling has denied a romantic link between the two, she has later gone on to say that he broke up with her and that she would have married him at one point if he had asked. But, the actress said being as young as she was then, she would have said yes to any proposal.
