About 24 years ago, Robin Williams gave life to a funny housekeeper who could “hip-hop, be-bop, dance till ya drop, and yo yo, make a wicked cup of cocoa,” when he starred in the beloved family film Mrs. Doubtfire.
To honor one of the late actor’s best flicks, we’ve put together this gallery of the cast and found out what they’re up to these days. —Chantal Waldholz

Sally Field (Miranda Hillard)
Back Then: The hard-working mother made the tough decision of filing for divorce from Robin's character. With the man of the house out of the house, she enlisted the help of a housekeeper — Mrs. Doubtfire. Little did she know it was her husband all along until, ya know, Stu choked on a shrimp at the end of the film.
Now: Most recently starring in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, the 70-year-old has been working hard in the industry and continues to dazzle us with her performances. In 2014, she was presented with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Robin Williams (Daniel Hillard/Mrs. Doubtfire)
Back Then: The actor played a father in the middle of a custody battle — and all he wanted to do was spend more time with his three kids.

Now: The Oscar-winning actor continued to make the world laugh until he tragically passed away at the age of 63 on Aug. 11, 2014. He will never be forgotten and his legacy will forever live on.

Pierce Brosnan (Stu)
Back Then: Being hit in the back of the head with a fruit thanks to Doubtfire ("It was a run-by fruiting!) and choking on a shrimp — again thanks to Doubtfire – Daniel didn't exactly get along with Stu when he swooped in to woo his estranged wife and their three kids.
Now: Bond...James Bond. 'Nuff said! The 63-year-old has been steadily working since playing swoon-worthy Stu.
