Hilary Duff and the ‘Lizzie McGuire’ Cast Reunited on Zoom, and It Was Pure Joy
The Lizzie McGuire reboot, starring Hilary Duff, may have hit some snags that halted its production, but that didn’t stop the O.G. cast from getting back together (virtually, of course) to catch up—and re-create one of the show’s most iconic episodes: the one with the bra.
“LIZZIE MCGUIRE retro table read! Some fun for you this Monday! Hope you guys have fun watching this!” Duff wrote on Instagram on May 11. “We could not stop laughing reading lines from tween us…this is the first time we were all ‘together-ish’ in almost 18 years! This week marks the 19th anniversary of this episode ‘Between a Rock and a Bra Place!’ Do excuse our delayed singing…we will be taking singing lessons as a group to work on our craft!!”
The whole gang was back together to reenact the time when Lizzie and Miranda got their very first bras—among those showing up were Adam Lamberg (Gordo), Lalaine (Miranda), Jake Thomas (Matt McGuire), Robert Carradine (Sam McGuire), Hallie Todd (Jo McGuire), Ashlie Brillault (Kate), and Davida Williams (Claire). Kyle Downes, who played Larry Tudgeman on the show, filled in for the David Carradine, who passed away.

“I truly believe that this show was magical, and everyone that was a part of it created that…and made this show mean so much to so many people,” Duff said at the end of the table read. “I think we’re all very grateful to have experienced that.”
As Lizzie McGuire fans know, production on the Disney+ reboot has currently been halted. Some reports suggest Disney+ didn’t like the direction it was going in and wanted something more family-friendly. Duff addressed the controversy in February 2020, writing on Instagram, “Was incredibly excited to launch Lizzie on D+ and my passion remains! However, I feel a huge responsibility to honor the fans’ relationship with Lizzie who, like me, grew up seeing themselves in her. I’d be doing a disservice to everyone by limiting the realities of a 30-year-old’s journey to live under the ceiling of a PG rating.”
