Break out the arthritis cream because as of mid-August The Babysitters Club movie is officially 20 years old. If you had any sort of childhood you were a fan of both the books AND the movie. So where are the actresses who played the seven girls now? Well we won't have all of those answers because some have left show-business and I feel skeevy creeping on their Facebooks, but here are the ones who have been active in entertainment since then.
Schuyler was kind of a huge deal when she was cast in this movie because she's the daughter of Sissy Spacek. She actually managed to make Kristy, who tbh is pretty unlikable in the books, a really good character in the film. Since The BSC she's been in the movie Orange County, was on One Tree Hill and Law & Order: SVU and she released an album in 2006. She got married in 2013.
We all already knew who she was before the movie: she was freakin' Alex Mack. She was obviously in one of ONTD's favorite movies as well, 10 Things I Hate About You. After Alex Mack ended she attended Sarah Lawrence College. She's done some acting here and there since then, including roles in Pepper Dennis, Hawaii Five-0 and Mad Men.
Bre Blair played everyone's favorite diabetic, Stacey. Since then she's done a bit of acting which includes guest roles on Love Inc., Psych, Nip/Tuck, and Grey's Anatomy. She also appeared in the movie Last Vegas.
Rachael Leigh Cook
Obviously after The BSC Rachael starred in She's All That, we all know that. You might also remember the ~dramatic~ anti-drugs commercial where she destroys a kitchen with a frying pan. Lately she's done a bunch of voiceover work for shows like Robot Chicken and the Batman Beyond series, as well as voicing many video game characters. In 2004 she married actor Daniel Gillies and they have two kids.
Jessi is a pretty minor BSC character in the movie (OP commentary: her books were some of my favorite BSC books though tbh) but Zelda Harris got a lot of praise after the film was released. She's since done a bit of acting, in Cosby, 413 Hope St., NYPD Blue and All About the Family. She went to Princeton, but not much else is known about her personal life.

Which BSC character did you want to be, and which do you think you were most like? Does the fact that this movie is 20 years old make you feel like an old person?
