True fans of That '70s Show will remember "Charlie", as he famously died as a virgin on the comedy-period series. However, his real life is quite the opposite - he's very much alive and well and even has quite a few kids!
Born on April 6, 1982, in Portland, Oregan, Bret Harrison had his first TV appearances in shows like MTV's Undressed, Fox's Grounded for Life and The O.C, as well as a part in the film Orange County (2002). He was then cast in That '70s Show as "Charlie", and was originally supposed to replace "Eric Foreman's" (Topher Grace) role, as Grace was getting ready to leave the show. He ended up only partaking in 4 episodes of the show to pursue other television shows.
This Is That '70s Show "Charlie" Today
Bret Harrison was actually the only character in the history of That '70s Show to kill his own character off! He ultimately was able to work on other series, including The Loop (2006-07), Reaper (2007-09), and Breaking In (2011-12).
Little did he know at the time, but Bret Harrison ended up reuniting with his former That '70s Show castmates, Ashton Kutcher and Danny Masterson, in The Ranch. Other '70s co-stars who appeared on the show include Wilmer Valderrama ("Fez"), Kurtwood Smith ("Red") and Debra Jo Rupp ("Kitty").
Today, Harrison can be seen in multiple shows! Not only can you binge all of The Ranch episodes on Netflix, but you can also check him out on the new series All Rise and Amazon Prime's El Canditato, where he has a recurring role! Bret will also be appearing in an upcoming film with Mira Sorvino called Mayfield's Game.
In his personal life, Bret has been married to his wife Lauren since March 25, 2012. The couple has two children together. We wish "Charlie" from That '70s Show and his family all the best!
