In the film and series industry, many actors have reached their peak of popularity due to the success of the project in which they participated. That is the case of Charles Shaughnessy, who will always be remembered for his role as Maxwell Sheffield, one of the great protagonists of the comedy The Nanny, released in 1993. However, this is not the only thing he has done throughout his career.
A few years ago he participated in an episode of another popular series and his followers were surprised to see the physical changes he had compared to his youth.

Together with the actress Fran Drescher, Charles starred in one of the most remembered television comedy series in the world thanks to the dialogues, jokes, funny chapters and of course the chemistry between the characters.
In the plot, Maxwell Sheffield is a widowed Broadway producer, who hires – almost by accident – Fran Fine to take care of his three children: Maggie, Brighton and Grace. The series lasted for six seasons and was translated into many languages.
Charles Shaughnessy’s career continued with participation in countless series and films, but none of them were at the same level of popularity that he achieved in the nineties.

Almost ten years after the comedy series, the actor surprised everyone in an episode called “Sanguine Love” in CSI: New York.
In the episode in question, the series’ team of investigators find a bloodless and earless woman in Central Park and stumble upon a mysterious subculture of vampirism. There, Shaughnessy played “Mr. Christensen.”
For adult viewers and sitcom fans, not only the tone of the story in which the actor known for comic roles is surprising, but his change in appearance also attracts attention, because he is seen gray the hair, was very different from his remembered character.

However, his brief participation in the series in 2010 is a pampering of the soul for those who nostalgically remember the nineties.
It is worth noting that 30 years after the premiere of the first episode of The Nanny, there are rumors of the possibility that the actors will be together again as a reunion to remember the best moments they had, like in the cast of Friends.
Currently, Charles Shaughnessy, at 68 years old, continues his acting career and this year he participated in episode 10 of the series The Winchesters, which can be enjoyed through the streaming platform, HBO MAX.
