Frasier cast: Then and now - Can you recognise them?

Over 15 years ago, Frasier aired its final episode after 11 straight seasons of downright good television. 

Starting in 1993, the Cheers spin-off captured viewers around the world as psychiatrist-turned radio host Dr. Frasier Crane had us in stitches from laughing for over a decade. 

The story follows the life of psychiatrist Frasier Crane, who lives with his father Martin and his dad’s British carer and part-time psychic, Daphne. 

Intertwined in the program spanning over 11 seasons, is Frasier's pompous and snooty brother, Nile, his funny radio producer, Roz and work colleagues Bob “Bulldog” Birscor and station boss Kenny Daly. 

Frasier proved to be one of the most successful spin-off television series in history and remains the most critically acclaimed comedy series of all time. The series amassed 37 Emmy’s during its run.
