Mackenzie Rosman who played the role of Ruthie Camden in 90s series '7th Heaven' has grown up to be a beautiful woman. She isn't the curly haired girl we used to know anymore.


AmoMama shares with you reports of Mackenzie Rosman’s recent endeavors after her stunning performance as a child in the series ‘7th Heaven’ as gathered from a Stanton Daily post.


Every 90s kid no doubt aspired to be like the little curly-haired beauty, Ruthie Camden’ in series 7th Heaven but not many knew her journey into stardom.

Born on December 28, 1989, in Charleston, South Carolina, Mackenzie came to this world with a natural knack for acting. On realizing her enormous talent, Rosman’s parents relocated to Santa Clarita, California where they began to take her to plenty auditions at a very little age.

At the tender age of four, Rosman already appeared in commercials for leading brands like Nike Shoes and Tuff’s Diapers. Not long after, the higher heights of Hollywood called on to her.


In 1996, at the age of seven, Rodman landed her breakout role as little Ruthie Camden on WB’s newest series 7th Heaven which was produced by the late Aaron Spelling.

At the audition, Rosman wowed the producers when she went around the room to greet everyone present with a smile, a handshake and a brief introduction of herself and snagged the role. Mackenzie played the role of Camden’s youngest daughter who loved playing with horses and getting in trouble with her older brother.


The next ten years of Rosman’s life was spent on the series, where she acted alongside Jessica Biel, Beverley Mitchell, Barry Watson and David Gallagher. Her outstanding performance as Ruthie Camden earned her Six Young Artist Award nominations for Best Performance in a TV Drama Series by a  Supporting Young Actress, but luck didn’t shine on her until 2004 when she took the award home.

After 7th Heaven, Rosman went ahead to feature in several movies including ‘Proud American,’ ‘The Tomb’ and many others. She returned to the world of television series as Zoe in ‘The Secret Life of the American Teenager.’

Currently, Rosman is an active philanthropist and humanitarian who focuses on education about organ donation and Cystic Fibrosis. Her step-sister Katelyn Salmont lived with Cystic Fibrosis until her death from the disease in December 2008.


Ever since Katelyn’s death, Rosman has poured herself out into supporting the cause and educating people about the disease.
