Lisa Jakub, an author and former child actor who memorably played Lydia in the comedy “Mrs. Doubtfire ”, had a perfect answer to a title questioning what“ had happened ”to him since the film was released in 1993: Lots of things, duh.
Friday, the author and coach in mental well-being shared a screenshot from an article on entertainment site Nicki Swift, with a headline that read, “What happened to the actor who plays Lydia in Mrs. Doubtfire?”
“Well, uh, I mean a lot has happened since 1993 so you’ll have to be more specific,” Jakub tweeted in response.

Jakub has already used Twitter to answer questions about her life since appearing in “Mrs. Doubtfire ”alongside the late Robin Williams, Sally Field, Pierce Brosnan, Mara Wilson and Matthew Lawrence.
Last November, she gave an overview of some highlights in her life – and a note on her burrito-making skills – since the film’s premiere.

In 2018, Jakub joined some of his cast mates to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the release of “Mrs. Doubtfire. She paid tribute to Williams, who played her father disguised as an elderly nanny in the film.
“One of the most important things for me to work with him is that he was very open and honest with me when talking about his addiction issues, depression, and it was so powerful for me to 14 years old, ”she said.
