On the child theme that i use for my users blogs this dont work.

Checking $bp var i can see that $bp->displayed_user its empty

There is way to do tihs?

try switch to the main blog where buddypress is installed, echo the profile fields then switch back to the current blog.

$bp_blog = 1; // the blog id of your buddypress install, often 1
echo bp_get_profile_field_data( 'field=Name');

if that doesn't work, maybe the user in question is not a member of your main blog. You might need to add all users in the network to the buddypress blog if they are not already.
