When Brothers and Sisters premiered in 2006 , the ABC drama instantly became a fan favorite, thanks in large part to the dysfunctional (but lovable) Walker family.

Led by matriarch Nora (played by Sally Field), the mother-of-five did her best to support her kids – Sarah, Tommy, Kitty, Kevin, and Justin — following the death of their father, William, and the bombshell revelation that he had a secret mistress and "daughter." 

Over the course of five seasons, the family dealt with even more blows, from Justin's substance abuse problems to Tommy losing a child to a horrific car crash that left Holly (William's mistress) severely injured. But through it all, the Walkers stuck together. 

So, what is the family doing now, all these years later? Keep scrolling to see the Season 1 cast of Brothers and Sisters today! And fun fact: April 18th is actually Kevin Walker's birthday.
