Where are the cast of The Grinch now? And what have they done since?

It’s hard to believe How The Grinch Stole Christmas was released 20 years ago.

The 2000 Dr Zeuss adaptation tells the story of a Christmas-hating Grinch who plans to ruin the big day for all of the residents of Whoville.

Unsurprisingly, it now tops the list of the nation’s favourite festive films, along with the likes of Home Alone and Love Actually.

So, to celebrate another year of watching it at least five times while sat in our PJs, drinking hot chocolate, let’s take a look at what the cast are doing now.
