A lot's changed since Then until now is basically night and day. This truth plays into every aspect of our society, especially pop culture and T. It was the year we were first introduced to the Gallaghers, their wacky neighbors, and the insane and often inappropriate adventures they'd find themselves in. Of course, first and foremost, the stars have all grown up. And this list really shows off how. Without further ado, here are 20 pics that show what the Shameless cast looks like now compared to Season One.
The two of them constantly had each other's backs, especially in the face of adversity. This recent photo proves that Jeremy and Cameron's relationship has mirrored their characters. But eight years of working with someone can offer that opportunity. As we can see from these photos, Emmy has far more of a socialite and fashion-forward.
Now, she clearly doesn't give a flying F. The girl's posing with a fish, after all. But we adore Emmy because she's unabashedly herself. Fiona has gone on a similar journey. She went through a lot, but by the end of it she's embraced the person she wanted to be versus what society expected her to be. Cameron Monaghan went from a cute young man to a hunky ginger in just eight years. He's managed to build a fanbase of women and men all around the world who thinks he's hot AF.
And given that redheads don't tend to be seen in the same light as blond and brunette dudes, this is a good thing. But Monaghan's acting chops have also grown immensely, allowing him to go tow-to-toe Emmy Rossum and William H.
Speaking of William H. Macy, he's gone through a lot in the past few years. Although, according to Hollywood Pipeline, it's mostly because of his family's doing. Of course, he's married to Felicity Huffman, the Desperate Housewives actor who has been punished for the college admission scandal. Ironically enough, his character, Frank, would totally pull a stunt just like the one his real family did.
Although Emmy Rossum's Fiona was far more capable without her con-artists ex, we can't help but believe that they both could have grown together at some point. When Emmy left at the end of last season, the chances of at went out the window.
So the closest thing to it is this current photo of them. In Shameless Season One, and in the rest of the earlier seasons, Debbie Gallagher was starved for attention. That's why she stole someone's baby or why she crushed on the boys she did. But nowadays, Debbie is doing just fine in that department. At least, the actor who plays her is.
As we can see from this pic, Emma Kenney has bagged herself a hunk of her own. There's no way that V in Season One, or in any season for that matter, would be able to have the opportunity to travel the world. But luckily, the actor who plays her, Shanola Hampton, isn't in that situation.
As we can see, she's done some pretty crazy traveling in her life. What's quite remarkable is the fact that Shanola doesn't seem to have aged at all.
She still looks just as good as when we first met her. Cameron Monaghan has had no shortage of hot AF women on his arms. But most famously, he's been Disney star, Peyton List. The couple made huge news for about a year but have since gone their separate ways. We're sure Cameron will find himself another talented babe soon enough. But that's mostly because she hung around with the wrong people.
In this pic, we can see how people gravitate to her wherever she goes. Of the entirety of the Shameless cast, Ethan Cutkosky has remained pretty quiet. He doesn't have as active as a social media page as his colleagues, nor does he put himself in the news or even other works. While he's grown up, it still feels like he's in his awkward stage. Although, he has a total babe of a long-term girlfriend, Brielle Barbusca, so good for him. Steve Howey has built the beginning of his career on the fact that he's an adonis.
Luckily for him, and us, he proved that he's capable of being far more than a hot dude. Seriously, he's a brilliant actor who has some of the best comedic timing of anyone in his generation. Although his chops have evolved considerably, one thing has remained consistent, he's still a hunk MF with abs that could crack stone. All of the current controversies aside, William H. Macy may just be one of the greatest actors working today.
There's a reason why he's been in so many of the best movies ever made. But no production has given him more to play with than Shameless has. Sure, sometimes his stories become a tad repetitive, but he always manages to elevate the material.
But much like Frank's hardcore lifestyle has, Shameless has aged this man considerably. Unlike her character in the first season of Shameless , Emmy has settled down. Mind you, when Emmy shot the first season, she was fresh out of her first marriage. It took until August for her to decide to get married again. Her and Esmail tied the knot in and have been in a committed relationship ever since. Back in Season One, Lip spent a lot of time trying to win over Karen Jackson, the ultimate manipulator. Then, in Season Two, he wasn't entirely sure if he was going to have a child with her.
Luckily for the actor who plays Lip, Jeremy Allen White, knowing the truth about parentage isn't an issue. Vancouver-born actor Noel Fisher has been one of the highlights of the entirety of Shameless. But back in the days of Season One, he was pretty unknown. But his portrayal of the exceptionally poor bad boy, Mickey, put him on the map. Nowadays, he's living a much more boujee life with his wife of many years, Layla Alizada. Although she doesn't tend to be most people's favorite character, there's no denying how dynamic Debbie Gallagher has become.
And a lot of that has to do with Emma Kenney's portrayal of her. In Season One of Shameless , Debbie was starved for attention and often got the short end of the stick. Nowadays, she's managed to handle her insecurities quite well and even turn the tables on some of her aggressors. Some things never change, and when it comes to Shameless , that includes getting into mischief. Gallagher boys, Ian and Lip, are notorious for causing trouble. This started in Season One and has continued through the show's run.
The pair may have gotten a tad older and more handsome, but their attitudes remain. One could probably say the same about the actors who play them, Jeremy and Ian. But neither of them hold a candle to the trouble William H. Macy has gotten himself into. Okay, let's be honest, when it comes to the Gallagher kids, every one of them has gone through a major physical transformation since the first season.
Well, all except for Carl's Ethan Cutkosky. Seriously, he's taken forever to grow. He still looks like the odd, psychotic, little kid he played in Season One. Well, luckily for him, Ethan's managed to build a fanbase of those who'd vehemently disagree with us.
Shameless Season One began the romantic connection between Lip and Mandy. Unlike most co-workers who are involved with each other, Jeremy's and Emma's relationship flourished from until Shortly after, Jeremy got together with his old friend, the absurdly gorgeous, Addison Timlin. The pair are now engaged with a daughter.
Somewhat oddly, Addison was once romantically linked to Jeremy's co-star, Justin Chatwin, the man behind Jimmy. Some faces change, others Along with looks, maturity and celebrity status have changed for the cast of Shameless. But one thing absolutely remains the same We look forward to seeing how their drama continues in the upcoming tenth season. Daily Mail and IG. Tumblr and IG. Daily Mail. Tumblr and Pinterest.
