Most people got to know her as Gia, the mean girl from “Full House.”

But she was also on The Practice for a long time.

And in the movie “Sugar and Spice.”

Oh, and Dude Where’s My Car? Plus Whatever It Takes with Shane West.

But if you stay up late enough, you can watch her on ION in the made-for-tv movie “A Christmas Wedding Date.”

She’ll may never out-famous herself past her role on “How I Met Your Mother” as Victoria.

Though she was in Something Borrowed recently (and is the sister of Kimberly Williams-Paisley, Brad Paisley’s wife and Peggy on Nashville).

4. Jordan Bridges

He started out as Oliver on “Dawson’s Creek”, a friend of Dawson’s who was lame because everyone Dawson associated himself was lamer because of it.

Right now, he plays Frankie Rizzoli on “Rizzoli & Isles.”

5. Monica Keena

She played super bitch Abby Morgan on “Dawson’s Creek.”

And was Rachel in one of Judd Apatow’s many cancelled-too-soon shows, “Undeclared.”

And E’s on-again, off-again girlfriend Kristen on “Entourage.”

6. John Patrick Amedori

He played Poot in “Stick It.”

A movie that has a surprisingly rabid fan base.

He was the hated (and quickly removed) Aaron Rose on “Gossip Girl.”

And played an adorable character named Mikey in the Netflix Instant-available film “TiMER.”

It’s a great movie. Watch it.

7. Jill Flint

She plays FBI agent Lana Delaney on “The Good Wife.”

Flint’s got a following in the gay community because of her role, but it’s unclear where that plotline is going because Lana sucks. This GIF might be the most badass that character ever gets.

She’s also Jill on “Royal Pains.”

Sorry to the real Jill: this character is also boring.

8. Chris Lowell

He played Piz on “Veronica Mars.”

And Dell, the young surfer staff member, in “Private Practice” before being dramatically killed off, as is usually the case with Shonda Rimes shows.


You’ve also seen him in “The Help” and “Up in the Air.”

9. Julie Gonzalo

You’ve seen her in “Freaky Friday.”

But she was also on the short-lived “Eli Stone.”

And she did a stint on Veronica Mars.

Right now, she plays Rebecca on “Dallas” 2.0.

10. Michael Cassidy

He’s the one on the right. That other dude is Danny Masterson.

He played Zach on “The O.C.”

As well as characters on other WB/CW shows, like Privileged, Smallville and Hidden Palms.

Right now he’s Tyler on TBS’ “Men at Work.”

11. Rachelle Lefevre

She was recently a doctor on “Off the Map.”

And a stripper on “What About Brian.”

But she’s also been on Boston Legal, Swingtown and A Gifted Man.

You know her as the original Victoria in “Twilight”

But Bryce Dallas Howard was recast in the role because Lefevre decided to do another movie and thought they would accomodate her. Girl, you’re not Bella!

12. Adina Porter

She’s Lettie Mae on “True Blood.”

And was also on “American Horror Story.”

Right now, you can see her on “The Newsroom”, where she has basically no lines.
