Gordo (Lizzie McGuire): His Life After The Disney Days!

Gordo (Lizzie McGuire) – AKA David Gordon – was one of the starring characters of Lizzie McGuire and the Lizzie McGuire movie.

Despite only having two seasons, the show was monumental in every millennial’s upbringing! Hilary Duff might have remained a household name, but whatever happened to Adam Lamberg (Gordo Gordon)?

His life before Disney…

Adam Lamberg was born in New York City to Suzanne and Marc.

He started acting at the age of 12, starring in Radiant City (1996), Lonesome (2001) and Dead Man’s Walk (1996) before getting his breakthrough role as Gordo.

Whilst at Disney…

Ou dear Lizzie might have had heart eyes for Ethan Craft but Gordo was the only one in our hearts. He was kind, smart and funny – what more could you want in a guy?!

Gordo had a crazy time on the show – we saw his bar mitzvah; his developing crush on Lizzie; his run ins with bully Kate Sanders; and his friendship with Lizzie and Miranda!

For a time we all thought that Gordo and Miranda might become a thing, but in the Lizzie McGuire movie, Gordo showed just how much he cared for Lizzie. The amount of covering up he did for her whilst she was off doing rehearsals with Italian men – shocking!

At the end of the movie, the pair FINALLY become official and Lizzie and Gordo end up kissing!!! Anyone else still get heart flutters at this scene?..

Adam’s life after Disney…

After his stint on Lizzie McGuire, Adam continued to act; he starred in the movies:When Do We Eat? (2005) and Beautiful Loser (2008). However, Beautiful Loser was his last ever acting role!

In the ELEVEN years since Adam starred on our screens, he has gone on to do some very impressive things.

For example, he attended the University of California in Berkeley, from 2002-2008, obtaining a bachelor’s degree in Geography. Let’s hope that the graduation ceremony didn’t go as badly as the one in Lizzie McGuire!

Geography is quite a difference from acting, don’t you agree? Somehow, he has managed to combine both in the working world.

Adam has worked at the Irish Arts Center in New York City since 2012. He first started off as an Assistant Event Coordinator, but according to his LinkedIn profile, he has got multiple promotions and is now the Development Officer!

For those of you who don’t know what the Irish Arts Center is (don’t worry, you weren’t the only one), they state:

‘Founded in 1972, Irish Arts Center is a New York-based arts and cultural center dedicated to projecting a dynamic image of Ireland and Irish America for the 21st century,’

They continue to say that they are dedicated about:

‘building [a] community with artists and audiences of all backgrounds, forging and strengthening cross-cultural partnerships, and preserving the evolving stories and traditions of Irish culture for generations to come’.

His social life…

It’s not just acting he has left in the past, it looks as if the man in question has stayed in the past in regards to social media too!

His first and only tweet is from January this year, even though he made the account in 2010…

He will appear in tweets though! For example, his workplace even joined in with the #wheresgordo ? They ended their tweet with #heresgordo. It seems like a good marketing ploy, to be fair!

Continuing his yearly social media appearance – to ensure our hearts don’t EXPLODE with worry about his existence – this is what the Irish Arts Center posted in 2o17:

What about his Lizzie McGuire friendships?…

When we first watched the show, our innocent young hearts believed that the cast of the series were all best friends who did everything together like on the show. However, in reunions that have happened between co-stars, Adam has yet to appear in any of the photos.

We all saw what happened when Kim Cattrall revealed that the other girls from Sex And The City – Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis – were horrible to her, is Gordo just waiting for his moment?..
