With the cast of Will & Grace getting together for a 10-minute clip recently, getting fans incredibly excited at the possibility of a reunion (which definitely needs to happen), we got thinking about the show.
No one can deny it was one of the funniest sitcom shows ever. We can’t quite believe it’s been over ten years since the show ended after eight series of dating, marriage, divorce and friendships.
Whilst it was initially met with criticism for its portrayal of homosexual characters, that quickly changed to critical acclaim.
It’s been ten years since the show ended, so what have the stars of the show been up to since?
Erik McCormack / Will Truman Then
Erik played one of the two protagonists of the show – the other being his best friend. He is a successful attorney living in New York, who is very particular about things such as dressing and cleaning.
