What happened to the young lady who played Kristin on earlier seasons of “Last Man Standing”? She played the part well.

The ABC sitcom went through a couple of cast changes after its first season. Alexandra Krosney, who played daughter Kristin, was dropped in favor of Amanda Fuller. Kristin’s son Boyd, played by Luke and Evan Kruntchev during the first season, was recast with Flynn Morrison. Nick Jonas, who guest-starred as Boyd’s father, Ryan, in the first season, was replaced by Jordan Masterson.

As we noted, Fuller is older than Krosney and “the age difference afforded the show the opportunity to retool the family dynamic.” In the process, Boyd became a noticeably older child than in the first season. As for Ryan, Jonas’ availability was limited; when the show decided to expand the role, it recast with Masterson.
