This friendship is everlasting! Even though Beverley Mitchell and Jessica Biel may not work side-by-side anymore, they are still a close pair — in fact, they even attempt to get their kids together for playdates.
It has been more than 10 years since the final 7th Heaven episode aired and, while the cast members have gone their separate ways, Beverley who played Lucy Camden on the family drama, still speaks to some of her costars. “I talk to Jessie and Barry [Watson] and David [Gallagher] and Mack [Rosman] — we all kind of stay in touch,” she exclusively told Closer Weekly. The 38-year-old even revealed that she and Jessica, 37, attempt to bring their children together to hang out.

“There’s been times when they’ve been in town [and] we try to get the kids together,” the actress said. “We’re super chill when we can get together if we can, but it’s hard.”
The country singer continued, “With kids, I feel like it’s hard to like make a play date with your next door neighbor. It’s just constant — everything is just — life is on super work speed, so trying to make plans with someone who travels a lot is even harder. But when we get to see each other, it’s awesome.”
Beverley shares two children — daughter Kenzie, 6, and son Hutton, 4 — with husband Michael Cameron. As for Jessica, she has one son, 4-year-old Silas, with Justin Timberlake. It’s very clear that these former costars are extremely close.
In fact, Beverley once revealed that the The Sinner star helped her through a very personal time. “[Jessica] was very supportive through everything and was always checking in on me and through the whole miscarriage thing,” she told Us Weekly.
Beverley added, “She was one of the first people I called and I’m just very grateful for her friendship and her being just a frickin’ badass, awesome person.” It’s always nice to see a strong friendship bond!
