Fred Savage was made popular by The Wonder Years and The Princess Bride. He is no longer a little kid and has grown into an adult with a great career. Since The Wonder Years, he has been very busy acting and directing.
The Wonder Years may have made Fred Savage a star, but he continued to expand his horizons with television shows such as Generator Rex, where he was the voice of Noah, and acted in Mr. Sunshine and Happy Endings. In both Mr. Sunshine and Happy Endings he played himself. Both shows were mid-season replacements for cancelled shows that season. Neither show lasted more than three seasons on the air.
Directing seems to be Fred Savage’s passion. Over the years Fred Savage has directed such hits as Boy Meets World, That’s So Raven, and Hannah Montana. His most recent directing job was the television comedy Best Friends Forever. This show was also a mid-season replacement and only lasted one season with six episodes.
Overall, Fred Savage has acted in 25 television episodes since 1986 and directed 40 television shows since 1999. While not all have been hits, he has been nominated for numerous awards from the Directors Guild of America.
