Houston-native, Hilary Duff started off as the quintessential child star, working her way up from commercials and minor TV movie roles to becoming a household name through Disney. At her peak, Duff had a starring role in a hit TV series, multiple movies, a clothing line, a singing career, and had featured on countless covers of top magazines. Who didn’t own something from the Duff? I know I did.
After getting married to ex-husband Mike Comrie and having her son Luca, Duff slowly began fading away from the spotlight. However, since divorcing Comrie in 2016, Duff made her way back with an album and another leading role in the Hallmark hit series Younger. She’s often mentioned as the one Disney star who matured in the industry without going “crazy” or “drama”.
Here’s a look back at some of the Duff’s most memorable work, moments, and more.
Casper Meets Wendy
Duff’s first major role is the 1998 direct-to-video film, Casper Meets Wendy. Barely 11 years old, you can already notice her charm on the screen.
