Unless you have been living under a rock, you will have seen Ferris Bueller's Day off about a million times. Remember Cameron Frye? Find out what he's been doing now...
Remember the one Ferris (Matthew Boderick) convinced to take the day off, AND steal his dad’s RARE Ferrari? Yes. That’s the fella. We loved how Cameron went from being that tightly strung (no-fun) guy, to, well, not that.
Well the man who brought us Cameron, Alan Ruck, is now 59, and has been pretty busy since FBDO. You might have even seen him around without even noticing!
Here’s a crazy fact: can you believe that Ruck was 29 when he played the depressive Cameron? Mind.Blown.
What happened after Ferris Bueller?
Alan has been in a number of films since his Day Off with Ferris — including, Star Trek Generations, Cheaper by the Dozen, and Casper!
In ‘Kickin It Old Skool’ Ruck played Dr. Frye… Hmm, coincidence much? WELL during the film Dr. Frye metioned that he was still paying off an old Ferarri… We wonder if poor Cameron will ever stop paying for that day off from school.
Ruck’s made a fair few one-off TV appearances over the years. Appearing as a Sacred Heart patient in Scrubs (season 2). He also had a minor role in an episode of Cougar Town, where his character had marriage problems due to a crush that he once had on Jules, played by Courteney Cox.
Have we seen him anywhere recently?
Now, he’s in a new science-fiction television series, The Whispers, playing Alex Meyers, executive director of the FBI… OOOH.
And if that’s not enough, he’s just started filming for a new horror film, Carnage Park.
What about his personal life?
Alan married Claudia Stefany in 1984, but later divorced in 2005. They had two children together Emma and Sam.
He later went on to marry actress Mireille Enos in 2008, after meeting in 2005 while co-starring in the Broadway show Absurd Person Singular. They also had two children together, Vesper Vivienne in 2010, and Larkin Zouey in 2014.
You can watch (for the millionth-and-one time) Ferris Bueller’s Day Off on E4 on Saturday at 9pm.
