'Married... with Children': This Is "Bud Bundy" Today
The TV show Married...with Children was one of the most popular shows of the nineties. While Christina Applegate and Ed O'Neill remained in the spotlight after the show ended, David Faustino, who played the lovable "Bud", didn't enjoy the same level of fame. Nevertheless, he still went on to star in numerous TV shows and movies.
Twenty-three years have passed since the show Married with Children ended. David Faustino (47) had his big breakthrough as "Bud Bundy" alongside award-winning actors such as Christina Applegate ("Kelly"), Katey Sagal ("Peggy") and Ed O'Neill ("Al Bundy").
Married with Children: David Faustino's breakthrough
Born on March 3, 1974, in Los Angeles, California, David Faustino was 13 years old when the series premiered in 1987. Married with Children ended when Faustino was 22 years old in 1997. The series revolved around the lives of the "Bundy" family.
The head of the family was "Al Bundy" who made a living selling women's shoes and loved boasting about his high school football career. His son "Bud" had remarkably bad luck with women, but was a straight-A student, in stark comparison to his sister "Kelly", whose strong point definitely wasn't studying. We just loved watching this show on TV! But what did David Faustino do after his time as "Bud"?
