Key cast members of hit 90s sitcom The Nanny have reunited at a party for Renée Taylor’s 83rd birthday. Charles Shaughnessy (who played Maxwell Sheffield), Fran Drescher (who played Fran Fine) and Renée Taylor (who played Sylvia Fine) posed in a series of Facebook photos.
They show that for Fran and Maxwell, there really was a happy ending. ‘An evening with the mother-in-law! Happy Birthday Renee!’ one post reads.
The much loved series ran for six years, earning it an Emmy and a Rose d’Or award.
The iconic show may be recognisable in its plot and cast but there are a lot of secrets hidden in that borderline beehive hair.
According to IMDB, the character played by Renée Taylor, Sylvia Fine, was billed as a guest star so the network wouldn’t be involved with her casting. Taylor remained a guest star for the whole series despite appearing in almost 100 episodes.
