It's been over two decades since the first Halloweentown [1] movie was released, and with Halloween [2] fast approaching, we've found ourselves wondering what the cast has been up to since. Dylan (Joey Zimmerman) and Sophie (Emily Roeske) are obviously all grown up now, but whatever happened to Marnie (Kimberly J. Brown) and Gwen (Judith Hoag)? What have they been up to? Sadly, Aggie (Debbie Reynolds) passed away [3] at age 84 in 2016, but we'll forever remember all the magic she shared with us [4]. Keep reading to see where the Halloweentown [5] cast is now.

She also cofounded an Etsy store called Craftily Creative [8], which sells Halloween-themed merchandise, and in 2016, she cowrote a children's book titled Poppin's Pumpkin Patch Parade.

Fun fact: Brown has been dating her Halloweentown II costar [9] Daniel Kountz, aka Kal, since 2018.
