What­ever hap­pened to…?

Fred die Prinze Ju­nior

Teenage dreams

Fred­die Prinze Ju­nior was one of the chief ob­jects of our teenage de­sires and his was most def­i­nitely one of the posters on our bed­rooms walls when we were at school (next to the one of Ryan Phillippe, of course). He was the star of films like I Know What You Did Last Sum­mer (1997) and She’s All That (1999) and also popped up in Friends as male nanny Sandy. But where the hell is he at these days?!

Other pas­sions

Fred­die might have started out as an ac­tor, but he has an­other love in life aside from act­ing and that’s wrestling. Af­ter cre­at­ing his own fan blog about his love of the in­dus­try, he was hired as cre­ative staff for WWE in 2008, writ­ing his own sto­ry­lines. Yep, re­ally. In 2010, he even played wrestler Vince Mcma­hon’s on-screen doc­tor on the show. Weird? Fred­die’s re­vealed: ‘Any­thing I haven’t done be­fore is in­ter­est­ing to me, and I loved wrestling al­ready. I wasn’t work­ing at the time, so I was like: “Yeah, I’ll come talk.” I didn’t even re­alise what I was sign­ing up for at the time.’

But he is still act­ing…

Namely as a voice ac­tor. He voices Jedi knight Kanan in the Star Wars: Rebels animated se­ries. He also has his own pod­cast called Prinze And The Wolf, which, he says, cov­ers ‘ev­ery­thing from MMA, to pop cul­ture, to gam­ing’.

A per­fect part­ner­ship

Celebrity re­la­tion­ships can be roller­coaster at best, but we can’t say the same about Fred­die and wife Sarah Michelle Gel­lar, 40, (yes, she of Buffy The Vam­pire Slayer fame). They met on the set of I Know What You Did Last Sum­mer, be­gan dat­ing two years later and now have two chil­dren, Char­lotte, seven, and Rocky, four. Fred­die re­vealed: ‘One of the rea­sons I think our re­la­tion­ship has al­ways been so good [is that] we were just friends for a good two years be­fore we ever went on a date. She knew what kind of guy I was. She knew what my morals were, what my pri­or­i­ties were – and vice versa. We al­ready kind of knew all the faults in the other per­son… We ended up be­ing the per­fect bal­ance… and that’s the main rea­son we’ve al­ways been cool and groovy.’
