The Nanny was probably one of the most popular TV shows back in the nineties. The show owed its success not only to the delightful Fran Drescher, but also to Charles Shaughnessy, who played Mr. Sheffield. We have to admit, we we fell for Charles as soon as he first appeared on our screens and so we decided to find out what the handsome actor has been up to over the last few years.

The Broadway producer and father of three Maxwell Sheffield was played by none other than Charles Shaughnessy (63), who, alongside Fran Drescher (60), was one of the main members of The Nanny cast. Both fans and critics agree that they made one of the cutest TV couples ever. It has been years since the show last aired and a lot has changed for our beloved Mr. Sheffield.

Shaughnessy has lost none of his good looks. Even today, the actor looks just as good as he did back then, albeit with slightly grayer hair. It seems that his increasing years have not affected his acting career at all, as he was able to star in a number of movies, such as Moontrap and Danger One, after The Nanny. He has also made numerous appearences on other TV shows like The Bay, Mad Men and Days of our Lives.

Charles Shaughnessy recently returned to screens in 2017, after taking a four-year-break from acting. The Mr. Sheffield actor has been lucky in love and has been married to wife Susan Fallender since his university days. The couple have two beautiful daughters, Jenny Johanna and Madeyln Sarah.
