Elizabeth Hurley was born on 10 June 1965 and is now 57. When she was 31, she went from being a British TV star and having small parts in American movies to becoming a real movie star when she played Vanessa Kensington, the daughter of Austin Powers’ 1960s love interest and his new love interest in the present day. Her first part after Austin Powers was a dramatic one in the movie Permanent Midnight, which also featured the dramatic skills of the comedian Ben Stiller.
She only had a small role in Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me because she was swamped in 1999. She was the main character in two funny movies, EdTV and My Favorite Martian. She often switched between dramas and comedies. For example, she went from The Weight of Water to Bedazzled to Method.
Recently, she has been doing well on TV. She had a recurring role on the short-lived show The Tomorrow People and a season-long storyline on Gossip Girl. But Hurley’s biggest success came when E! Entertainment Television started making scripted dramas. In The Royals, she plays the Queen of a made-up monarchy.
Will Ferrellwas born on 16 July 1967 and is now 55 years of age. He had been on Saturday Night Live for two years. When he was 33, he played the bad guy Mustafa in Austin Powers. In A Night at the Roxbury, Ferrell brought to life one of his SNL characters in the time between the first and second films.
Even though he had a few minor roles in comedies like Dick, Zoolander, and the Superstar and The Ladies’ Man movies based on SNL, this actor’s star was quickly on the rise.
Todd Phillips, who made The Hangover, gave him his big break with the raunchy comedy Old School. Then many classic comedies came out, like Talladega Nights, Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, and Blades of Glory.
He was in the famous movie Step Brothers and the movie version of the TV show Land of the Lost. He was on The Office, Eastbound and Down, and the IFC parody The Spoils of Babylon, all of which were great shows. He has recently been in The Other Guys and Daddy’s Home with Mark Walhberg.

Robert Wagner was born on 10 February 1930 and is now 92 years. He has been in studio movies since the early 1950s, so when he was 67, playing Number Two, Dr Evil’s slick and evil assistant, he was already a seasoned actor. After Austin Powers, he was in Wild Things and Overdrive. His career never slowed down.
He came back as Number Two in The Spy Who Shagged Me and Austin Powers in Goldmember. In between, he was in Crazy in Alabama and Played It to the Bone.He played Kelly Ripa’s dad, Jack Fairfield, on the TV show Hope & Faith. He got a recurring role on Two and a Half Men in 2007.

Susanna Hoffs was born on 17 January 1959 and is now 63. She was a part of a far more well-known musical group before she appeared in Austin Powers when she was 38years. As a member of the psychedelic band Ming Tea. Hoffs composed and performed some of the most well-known songs of the 1980s, such as “Walk Like an Egyptian” and “Manic Monday,” as a co-founder of the band The Bangles.
Hoffs has prior acting experience thanks to her role in The Allnighter, directed by her mother, Tamar Simon Hoffs. She did, however, appear in Austin Powers because, in 1993, Hoffs wed director Jay Roach, who then chose her for the part in his movie.
She appeared in both sequels, but since then, she hasn’t appeared in any further performing roles. However, she reunited with Matthew Sweet, a bandmate from Ming Tea, to form Sid ‘n Susie in 2006.The pair releases original renditions of well-known songs from the 1960s and 1970s. She reconnected with The Bangles to record the album Sweetheart of the Sun in 2011.
Michael York was born on 27 March 1942 and is now 80 years of age. He is one of the most talented and classy British actors you could find. When he was 52 years, he played Basil Expositionâ€”seeing him as the only stuffy character in a movie full of free-spirited people was so fun.
York has been in many different things, like the TV shows Sliders and Dead Man’s Gun and the movie 54. (also starring Mike Myers).
He was one of only a few actors to play Basil in both movies’ sequels. From Winnie the Pooh: A Very Merry Pooh Year to The Omega Code to The Haunting of Hell House, his career never went where anyone thought it would.
He was a memorable guest star on Gilmore Girls, but his role as himself in the Larry David show Curb Your Enthusiasm was even more memorable.
He has done many voices for The Simpsons and has been on How I Met Your Mother and Family Guy in the past few years.
Mindy Sterling was born on 11 July 1953, and now she is 69 years of age. When she was 43 she was the most surprising funny thing about the first Austin Powers was Mindy Sterling’s performance as Frau Farbissina, who was crazy and full of mania. She was an instant hit in the movie, so she returned for the sequels and got caught up in the complicated story of Dr Evil’s family.
In the meantime, Sterling was getting great supporting roles in movies like Idle Hands and Drop Dead Gorgeous and TV shows like Manhattan, AZ. She also got good at doing voices for animated shows for kids like “Invader Zim,” video games like “Everquest II,” and popular movie franchises like “Ice Age: The Meltdown.”
She has played many characters on Robot Chicken, made by her Austin Powers co-star Seth Green, and she has a recurring role on the ABC show Desperate Housewives. She worked on the famous show The Legend of Korra and the FX comedy Legit. She can now be seen on Alan Tudyk’s fan-focused comedy series Con Man and the popular show Black-ish.
Clint Howard was born on 20 April 1959 and is currently 63 years. When he was 38 years, he played the role of a Radar Operator in the Austin Powers movie. This is because of his position as the NASA Mission Control representative in his brother’s film Apollo 13. Throughout his nearly fifty-five-year playing career, Clint Howard has played roles ranging from kid roles on the original Star Trek to teen roles on The Cowboys to adult roles in most films directed by his brother, Ron Howard.
With The Dentist 2 and The Waterboy, Howard alternated between comic and horror roles because of his exceptional acting abilities. One of the rare performers who appeared in the full Austin Powers trilogy is him.
He was also one of only three actors to feature in all three of the Star Trek original series, Deep Space Nine and Enterprise, each time taking on a different role.
He collaborated with Rob Zombie on the films Lords of Salem and Halloween and appeared in the revival of his brother’s television show, Arrested Development.
Carrie Fisher was born on 21 October 1956 and is now 60. When she was 40 years, she played in the Austin Powers movie as a therapist. Her presence as the psychiatrist attempting to help Dr Evil and his son Scott create an emotional connection is one of the hilarious uncredited scenes of the movie, even though it is brief and her performance went uncredited. She has a well-known career because of Star Wars films, but she has always been a talented comedian.
She starred in The Blues Brothers and The Burbs, two classic comedies from the 1980s, and after appearing in Austin Powers, she made a hilarious cameo in Dr Katz, Professional Therapist. In Scream 3, she parodied her identity, and in Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. She made a funny (though unsettling) cameo.
In recent years, when she voiced characters on Family Guy and played Rob Delaney’s mother in the Amazon comedy Catastrophe, her comedic timing remained as sharp as ever. Her untimely death in late 2016 prevented her from returning as Princess Leia, but she will appear once again in Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
Seth Green was born on 8 February 1974 and is 48 years old. He was only 23 years old when he played Scott Evil in Austin Powers, and he already had a distinguished career behind him, which includes roles in The Wonder Years, The X-Files, and the It TV movie adaption.
Green, Mike Myers, and a select few more actors were fan favourites from the first movie and appeared in each subsequent instalment.
With appearances in more significant theatrical films like Enemy of the State and innovative comedies like Can’t Hardly Wait and Idle Hands, H was on the rise. He appeared on Buffy the Vampire Slayer occasionally as Oz the werewolf, and he also appeared in several episodes of Entourage as himself.
Green is a regular cast member on both Family Guy and Robot Chicken. He has recently gained notoriety for his voice acting and animation-producing work.
Additionally, he portrayed the Marvel character Howard the Duck in a cameo after Guardians of the Galaxy and had appearances on Broad City, Phineas, and Ferb.
Mike Myers is 59 years old. He was born on May 25, 1963. When he was 33, he was at his best playing a larger-than-life character Austin Power.Like many of the best comedians who got their start on Saturday Night Live. The main character in Austin Powers was also one of their products. All three movies in the series were written and made by Myers, and there are rumours that a fourth movie is in the works.
After Austin Powers, Myers acted in the dramatic biopic 54 and the strange crime drama Pete’s Meteor, where he got to use a broader range of skills. Between the Austin Powers movies, Mike Myers was in Mystery, Alaska, directed by Jay Roach. But his most famous role was as Shrek, the loveable but grumpy Ogre, in the animated movie Shrek.
The character was a hit in several sequels, but Myers had trouble finding more success in live-action. He didn’t do very well in The Cat in the Hat and The Love Guru.He was great in Inglourious Basterds and is now playing fake game show host Tommy Maitland on the new version of The Gong Show. He is going to play Del Close in a movie about his life.
A fun fact about the Austin Powers movieis that Myers started thinking up the movie when he was driving home one day. The song “The Look of Love” by Burt Bacharach was on the car radio.This made Mike Myers wonder where all the “swingers” had gone. This led the comedian to ask his wife at the time, Robin Ruzan, if she “swung” and if he “made her horny.” Myers wrote the first draft of Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery three weeks after being told to stop and write down this new character.
