The kid is cast! For those who have wondered what the child belonging to Daphne (played by Janes Leeves) and Niles (played by David Hyde Pierce) of the hit TV show Frasier would look like, the wait is over. Seen in 2004
The boy: On Wednesday it was announced Anders Keith has been cast as the offspring of the lovebirds for a sequel to the beloved show which aired from 1993 until 2004
This will be Keith’s first screen job as he is fresh out of Julliard having graduated in May 2022.
Also on Wednesday it was shared that Jess Salgueiro was cast as Eve who is friends with Frasier’s son. Already cast are Nicholas Lyndhurst, and Jack Cutmore-Scott as Frasier and Lilith’s son’s Freddy.
Kelsey is starring in the sequel but none of the other original cast members are.
That means Leeves and Pierce will not be on board and neither will Peri Gilpin, who played Roz Doyle. John Mahoney, who played the dad of Frasier and Niles, died aged 77 in 2018.

David is a college freshman who is awkward but enthusiastic with his mother’s agreeable smile, it was shared by the site.
Daphne gave birth to David during the Frasier finale in 2004. He is named after the series’ co-creator David Angell who died in the September 11 attacks.
The Frasier sequel takes place in a new city. ‘In a very funny way, it just took us to a new place, which was what we originally wanted to do, anyway, which was a Frasier third act,’ Grammer told People in a November interview. ‘It’s an entirely new life for him.’

While the plot has been kept secret since the reboot was announced in 2021, the official log reads: ‘Frasier is off to a different city with new challenges to face, new relationships to forge, and an old dream or two to finally fulfill. Frasier has re-entered the building!’
