Undoubtedly, one of the most prominent and popular characters of the series Step by Step was the teenager JT, who constantly made fun of his half-sister Dana. But as soon as the series came to an end, JT’s co-star Brandon Call was no longer seen or heard from. What does he look like and what is he doing today?
When the name JT Lambert is mentioned, fans of the 1990s TV series will immediately think of the brown-haired teenager with unmistakable charm who was one of the main characters of the family sitcom Step by Step. JT was one of the most popular characters on the show, so it’s no wonder that actor Brandon Call, who portrayed JT, received a lot of fame and also a lot of attention from female fans. But that fame didn’t last long.
Although Step by Step was the highlight of Brandon’s career, the actor appeared in other well-known works before that. His voice was heard, for example, in the animated film Black Cauldron from the Disney studio, and subsequently Brandon also appeared as Hobie Buchanan in the series Coast Guard. He thus won the hearts of many viewers even before he appeared on the screens as a member of the Lambert family.
Once Step by Step ended in 1998, Brandon Call mysteriously disappeared from the spotlight. His fans didn’t understand that. Why did one of the most promising young actors of the time decide to leave the world of show business?
According to Christine Lakin, who played Elle in the sitcom Step by Step, his withdrawal may have been related to a traumatic event. In 1996, Brandon became the victim of a shooting when an unknown man started shooting at him from his car. Although the actor survived the incident, it seems that the experience may have greatly affected his relationship with Hollywood.

He doesn’t care about fame
Today, Brandon Call cares more about the gas pump than his next acting part. According to available reports, he runs a family gas station in San Diego and is a happily married man. It must also be said that only a few would recognize the charismatic JT in him today. The actor has changed a lot over the years. There is no trace of his thick dark hair and he has also gained weight. However, the expression on his face shows that he is satisfied and happy.
