For many years Rory Culkin's siblings, alongside "The Expecting" star, have thrilled TV audiences with their innate acting talents, from their time as child stars until they grew into mature adults. But the big question remains; where are they now, and what have they been up to?

Before appearing in "The Expecting" and Netflix's series "Halston," Rory Culkin was a teenage star who featured in the same movies as his brothers, Macaulay and Kieran.

They were not the only ones who worked in Hollywood. Rory came from a large family, including four brothers and two sisters who shared the same passion for showbiz.

However, the Culkin siblings carved out their unique identities over time, which showed in their appearances, acting styles, and features.

Today, they are all leading different lives. Some have stuck with their first love — acting, while others branched into something else. Ultimately, the Culkins remain a close-knit family, despite having suffered a heartbreaking loss in the past.

RORY CULKIN

Rory is the last son of Broadway star Kit Culkin and Patricia Brentrup. He was born in 1989, and his first time on the big screen was beside his older brother, Macaulay, in "The Good Son."

A few years later, he worked with Kieran in "You Can Count On Me." While appearing in the same features with his siblings, Rory played their younger versions.

In 2002, he no longer hid in the shadows, as he bagged his first significant role in "Signs," where he starred alongside Mel Gibson, Abigail Breslin, and Joaquin Phoenix.

Following the success of the film, Rory did not rest on his oars; instead, he continued to fulfill his passion and has since appeared in miniseries and movies, including "Scream 4," "The Night Listener," "Hick," "Lords of Chaos," "The Twilight Zone," "Halston," and "Waco."

While Rory pursued his career, he also had time for a fairytale romance with his cinematographer beau, Sarah Scrivener. The pair began dating in 2011, and in 2018, they married.

The groom, a Wrestlemania fanatic, scheduled his wedding for the eve of "Wrestlemania 34." One of their guests was WWE's hypeman Paul Heyman, who surprisingly presided over the ceremony.

MACAULAY CULKIN

Macaulay is the most famous of his siblings, and he became a household name before becoming a teenager. The child star began his Hollywood journey at age 4, after appearing in commercials and films like "Rocket Gibraltar" and "Uncle Buck."

These successes paved the way for the megastardom that came when he was ten years old. Macaulay featured in the box office hits "Home Alone" and "Home Alone 2: Lost in New York."

Both productions were successful, with the first reaching a gross net worth of more than $400million. To date, they remain a classic—and a go-to film for families on Christmas.

Despite the rousing success, Macaulay retired for some time and focused on other aspects of his life. In 1998, he married Rachel Miner, but they divorced in 2002. That same year he became involved with Mila Kunis.

Their relationship lasted for eight years before they separated in 2011. Six years later, Macaulay found his soulmate, Brenda Song. The couple became an item and have since stuck together. They are now engaged after welcoming their first child, Dakota.

Besides being a family man, Macaulay is still involved in onscreen features, including commercials, shows, and movies. The actor also has an enviable relationship with his fans online.

SHANE CULKIN

Shane, born in 1976, is the firstborn of his parents and the eldest of Rory's siblings. Although he ventured into acting at a young age and has one credit to his name, the former actor prefers to live under the radar.

DAKOTA CULKIN

Not to be confused with Macaulay's son, Dakota is the actor's older sister. She chose a life away from the spotlight, and according to her IMDb profile, she worked in the art department on a film titled "Lost Soul."

Dakota wanted to be in the film business but as a film producer. Unfortunately, she did not live long to achieve this dream. She died at age 29, in 2008, from severe head trauma after moving to Los Angeles. The second Culkin sibling was hit by a car while walking on Lincoln Boulevard.

KIERAN CULKIN

Kieran was born in 1982 and is a busy bee like his younger brother, Rory. He is the most talked-about Culkin sibling, following his work on HBO's "Succession" as Roman Roy. Last year, the actor hosted an episode of "Saturday Night Live" featuring Ed Sheeran.

QUINN CULKIN

Quinn is Rory's second sister but the only surviving one. She was born in 1984. Although she is no longer an actress, Quinn was fascinated by acting at a young age. Her features include small parts in "Home Alone" and "The Good Son."

CHRISTIAN CULKIN

Christian, born in 1987, is the youngest of the clan. In 1994, he starred in "It Runs In The Family," featuring Kieran, but since then, he has been away from the spotlight.

WHO ARE RORY CULKIN'S PARENTS?

Rory's dad, Kit, was a Broadway star who never got any recognition. But he pushed his kids into acting, with or without their consent. At their young ages, the Culkin siblings were forced to perform in their parents' friend's theatre.

While Kit strived for excellence in his kids, he never invested time in caring for them. Macaulay claimed he was abusive. Eventually, they cut him off following his divorce from their mom.

Today, the Culkin siblings are all doing well in their personal lives and careers, despite their father's parenting, parents' separation, and the traumatic experience of losing a sister.
