Marcia Cross

For Marcia Cross, who played Bree, life will largely center on her family, which includes her husband, Tom Mahoney, and 5-year-old twin daughters, Eden and Savannah. "There are so many things I want to do, but it's really about the people I've sort of neglected in my mind, though they don't necessary feel that way, over the eight years," Cross, 50, told People. "I had children, my husband was not well for a while, so I have I been on this very busy, busy, busy road. I want to have time and space to hear how my friends are doing." During her break from the spotlight, Cross is also looking forward to not counting calories. "I've had to watch my weight for the show and am looking forward to not having to think about it anymore," she told Britain's Easy Living magazine.
