10 Things I Hate About You is a modern telling of William Shakespeare’s classic The Taming of the Shrew. The 1999 film transported the Bard's tale to a modern high school in the Pacific Northwest, and while the cast contained a relatively unknown collection of young actors, many of them went on to become huge stars and have long careers following the film. As it's been more than 16 years since we first met the students of Padua High School, and we thought we'd take the opportunity to see where some of the cast members are now.

Heath Ledger
The story of Heath Ledger is probably the most well known at this point, but it still bears repeating. 10 Things I Hate About You, where he played the lead, Patrick Verona, was his first U.S. film following work in his native Australia. Technically his first American work was the FOX series Roar, though, if you blinked you likely missed the 13 episode run. Following 10 Things, Ledger would go on to star in such films as A Knight’s Tale and Lords of Dogtown before being nominated for the Best Actor Oscar for Brokeback Mountain in 2006. In January of 2008 he was found dead of an accidental overdose. Shortly after his tragic passing, his role as The Joker in The Dark Knight became his most lauded performance, earning him numerous posthumous awards, including the 2009 Academy Award for Best Actor.
