I’ve always loved a good comedy drama film, and The Devil Wears Prada, which came out in 2006, is one of the best, in my opinion. From the moment I watched it, I knew it would be one of my favorite films. With a movie as iconic as The Devil Wears Prada, from the fashion to the drama, the cast is sure to have gone on to do some amazing things. 

With actresses like Anne Hathaway, Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt and more, The Devil Wears Prada had some amazing stars - and ever since the film’s release, they have been keeping busy. This is everything they’ve been up to as of late.

Meryl Streep (Miranda Priestly) 

Miranda Priestly has to be one of the most iconic bosses of all time - and that level of iconicness could only be played by one of the most iconic actresses of all time, Meryl Streep. Unsurprisingly, Streep has been very active, in both the TV and film world, since her critically acclaimed performance as Miranda Priestly in The Devil Wears Prada. 

Since her role in the movie, Meryl Streep has appeared in films such as the musicals Mamma Mia!, The Prom, and Into the Woods, the drama, Julie & Julia, the romantic comedy, It’s Complicated, the period piece, Little Women, and the biographical drama, The Post, among many others. She also voiced Mrs. Fox in the Wes Anderson film, Fantastic Mr. Fox. Among her many credits, Meryl Streep also won the Academy Award for Best Actress for her portrayal of Margaret Thatcher in The Iron Lady. In 2021, she appeared in the Netflix film, Don’t Look Up. 

While she’s had plenty of success film-wise, Meryl Streep has also strayed a bit into the TV world. She had a main role in Season 2 of the successful series on HBO, Big Little Lies, appeared in the Extrapolations cast, and held a recurring role in Only Murders in the Building for Season 3, something the EP of the show couldn’t stop talking about. Streep doesn’t have anything new coming up yet, but I’m sure it won’t be long before we see something else come from this amazing actress.

Anne Hathaway (Andrea “Andy” Sachs)

As one of her breakout roles, Anne Hathaway starred as Andy in The Devil Wears Prada, and has had an incredibly successful career after her role. Honestly, The Devil Wears Prada is one of Hathaway’s best films

In terms of film, Hathaway went on to star in several movies, such as the romantic-drama, Rachel Getting Married, the comedy, Bride Wars, another romantic-comedy called Love & Other Drugs, the fantasy film Alice in Wonderland (and it’s sequel years later), the superhero film, The Dark Knight Rises, the comedy, The Intern, and many others. Anne Hathaway also won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her role in 2012’s Les Miserables. She’s also expanded into voice-acting as well, having a lead role in the Rio series. 

Hathaway has starred in several movies since then, such as Oceans 8 and The Hustle, and starred in the HBO Max original, The Witches. Hathaway has also had appearances in TV as well, with a voice role on The Simpsons, a part in the miniseries WeCrashed, and a couple of guest spots on the Amazon original series, Modern Love. She appeared in She Came To Me in 2023, as well as a few other films over the last couple years, Eileen and Armageddon Time. Coming up, she will be in the new film The Idea of You, and in two new movies called Mother Mary and Mothers Instinct.

Emily Blunt (Emily Charlton) 

I think a part of us all hated Emily Charlton at first but then slowly came to like her over time, and that sort of charisma could only be brought forward by Emily Blunt. After her role in The Devil Wears Prada, Blunt has had a very successful career in film. 

She had main roles in The Young Victoria, The Adjustment Bureau, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, the action film, Edge of Tomorrow, the musical, Into the Woods, the crime thriller, Sicario, and the thriller, The Girl on the Train. She also had a lead role in the horror film, A Quiet Place alongside her husband, John Krasinski, and its sequel in 2021. She starred as Mary Poppins in Mary Poppins Returns, and returned to Disney again with the 2021 film, Jungle Cruise, alongside Dwayne Johnson. 

Blunt has also dabbled in voice-acting as well, appearing in the Gnomeo and Juliet film series, and did the English dub for The Wind Rises. 

In 2023, she was a part of the endless Oppenheimer cast as well as Pain Hustlers, and also appeared in the TV show, The English in 2022. Coming up, she will appear in the upcoming action film, The Fall Guy and the movie IF.

Stanley Tucci (Nigel Kipling) 

Stanley Tucci is a chameleon in the acting world - you give him a role and he will perfect it, and that’s what he did with Nigel Kipling in The Devil Wears Prada. After his role in the movie, Tucci has gone on to appear in several big roles in films and TV. 

One of his biggest roles was his critically-acclaimed performance in The Lovely Bones. Besides that, he appeared in Julie & Julia, the Emma Stone-comedy, Easy A, Captain America: The First Avenger (and reprised his role in What If…? on Disney+), had a voice role in the Disney live-action Beauty and the Beast, appeared in the Academy Award-winning Spotlight, and played Caesar Flickerman in The Hunger Games series.

Okay, it can’t just be me - was anyone else wondering what Nate’s amazing cheese sandwiches tasted like? Because I was. Regardless, Adrian Grenier portrayed Nate Cooper in The Devil Wears Prada, and has gone on to have quite the successful career. 

Grenier has appeared in several films, including Goodbye World, Affairs of State, Stage Mother and more, but one of his biggest roles thus far has been portraying Vincent Chase in Entourage, a main role he had in the TV series that carried over to the Entourage film in 2014.

With movies, Sommer has appeared in many big films, such as Celeste and Jesse Forever, The Giant Mechanical Man, Hello, My Name is Doris, A Futile and Stupid Gesture, and many others. TV, however, is where Sommer shines.

In terms of movies, Sunjata appeared in Ghosts of Girlfriends Past, the thriller film, Gone, The Dark Knight Rises, One For The Money, Small Town Crime and more. But TV is where this former castmate has shared his talents the most.

James Naughton (Stephen) 

Last but not least, we have James Naughton, who played Stephen in The Devil Wears Prada.

In movies, he appeared in Factory Girl, Suburban Girl, and others. However, he’s mainly kept his talents to the small screen. 

In television, Naughton appeared on Warehouse 13, Damages, Blue Bloods, and many others. He had a major recurring role in the hit CW show, Gossip Girl as William van der Bilt, and a part as President Paul Kincaid in Hostages. He also appeared in The Blacklist, The Independents, The Affair and many others. He appeared in The Accidental Wolf TV show, and had a role on the podcast series Supreme: The Battle for Roe. Naughton doesn’t have anything new releasing in the near future, but I’m sure it won’t be long before we see him again. 

With a cast so large and with so much talent, it’s not a surprise that they have continued to lead successful careers. One can only imagine what’s going to come next for everyone else. Now, if I could just get that grilled cheese recipe, that would be a life-saver.
