Everybody Loves Raymond was hugely popular when it aired on CBS In late 90s and early 2000s.

The hilarious sitcom told the story of an Italian American man and his family living in Long Island, NY, not far from his overbearing and stereotypically Italian parents and his older brother, still living at home with them.

The show covered the daily happenings of the titular character of Raymond, a sportswriter, with his opinionated wife Debra and their three young children, his meddling mother and father and complaining brother.

The show continued running for nine seasons and ended in 2005.

Now, 25 years to the day that it first aired, we at Daily Star take a look at where the cast is today?

Ray’s biggest roles to date include the critical movie hits The Big Sick and epic Netflix crime film The Irishman.

He currently appears in the series Get Shorty, a role he has held since 2017.

He is married to Anna Scarpulla and has four children.

His character's daughter on Everybody Loves Raymond was named after his real-life daughter, Alexandra "Ally" Romano, and she played the best friend of his daughter on the show.

She guest-starred in the Middle and brought more laughs in Grandma’s.

Doris sadly passed away in 2016 at the age of 90, leaving behind one son.

Shortly after the show ended he died of multiple myeloma and heart disease at age 71, in 2006.

"He was a strong and selfless friend. When confiding in one another, Sawyer always had the kindest words of encouragement. He will live on in my head and those shared moments forever."
