From 2000 to 2005, Queer as Folk was America's first TV series to exclusively focus on the lives and loves of gay and lesbian characters. Love it or hate it, we had to watch it -- and now there's news that there will be a reboot on Bravo. Here's what the talented cast has been up to since the historic show went off the air more than a decade ago.
Gale Harold (Brian Kinney)
Since his star-making turn on QAF, Harold has performed on stage and has been a series regular on TV shows including Vanished, Desperate Housewives, Hellcats, The Secret Circle, and Syfy's futuristic Defiance. He also starred in the film Kiss Me, Kill Me and most recently appeared on Criminal Minds.
Randy Harrison (Justin Taylor)
The show's uber-twink appeared on Broadway in Wicked, and regionally at the Yale Repertory Theater, The Guthrie Theater, and Shakespeare Theatre DC. He starred with Michael Urie in the comedy film Such Good People and was recently seen on TV's Mr. Robot and the web series New York Is Dead.
Peter Paige (Emmett Honeycutt)
Paige has voiced characters on the animated Rick & Steve and American Dad! Along with guest roles on Grey's Anatomy, Without a Trace, CSI: Miami, The Closer and Bones, he produced Freeform's long-running gay-friendly series The Fosters. A spinoff he cocreated, Good Trouble, is also forthcoming.
After playing QAF's ultimate PFLAG mom, the former Cagney and Lacey star went on to play recurring TV roles opposite Jason Isaacs in The State Within, on Nip/Tuck, and in the long-running series Burn Notice. Other recent TV credits include The Exorcist, Adoptable, The Gifted, and Casualty. Gless will also star alongside Elisabeth Shue in Constance, a 2019 television film in which Shue portrays a former beauty queen.
Michelle Clunie (Melanie Marcus)
Michelle Clunie has guest-starred on a slew of TV shows including House M.D., The Mentalist, Lie to Me and NCIS. Clunie has been a series regular on Make It or Break It and portrayed Mrs. Finch on Teen Wolf. In 2015, she gave birth to a son, Dashiell, who was fathered by out producer Bryan Singer.
Thea Gill (Lindsay Peterson)
After two seasons as Diana Childs on the gay horror series Dante's Cove, Gill starred in films including Mulligans, The Boy She Met Online, and Mother Country, and in TV's disaster flick Stonados. More recently, Gill snagged a role in the acclaimed Annette Bening-led indie 20th Century Women, where she played Greta Gerwig's mom. She has another movie, Red Rover, in post-production.
Scott Lowell (Ted Schmidt)
Since QAF, Lowell has guest-starred on TV shows including Criminal Minds, Heroes, Castle, and Bones. He also starred in the comic web series Adoptable, which he wrote, loosely based on his own experiences searching for his birth parents back in the '90s. Most recently, he was seen in the indie film Monsoon, which co-starred Eve Plumb -- Jan from The Brady Bunch, of course!
Robert Gant (Ben Bruckner)
Since his QAF days, the out gay heartthrob has done memorable guest turns on shows including Hot in Cleveland, Mike & Molly, and Happily Divorced. Gant had a recent recurring role on The Young and the Restless, and played Zor-El on the CW series Supergirl. Since 2017, Gant has worked steadily, nabbing recurring roles on 13 Reasons Why, The Fosters, and the Hallmark Channel TV movie, Wedding of Dreams (co-starring Debbie Gibson!).
Sherry Miller (Jennifer Taylor)
Her post QAF films include the gender-swap comedy It's a Boy Girl Thing, and the gay cop thriller Ice Blues. Miller's recurring series roles include jPod, The Best Years, Bitten, and Nickelodeon's recent series Open Heart. Most recently, this striking actress appeared on shows like Schitt's Creek, Good Witch, and the Jerry O'Connell series Carter, where she portrays the mayor of a Canadian town.
Harris Allan (James “Hunter” Montgomery)
The young actor, who played a teen runaway-turned-hustler on QAF, made his film debut in A Home at the End of the World. Since then, he's appeared in the TV musical movie Spectacular! and in the gay teen comedy film Date and Switch. Allan also has a small role in 2017's The Cannon, a film about the struggles of a porn star.
