Nickelodeon

These days all we ever talk about is Guts, Hey Arnold and Double Dare, but during Nickelodeon's hayday the network's most popular show was actually The Secret World of Alex Mack.

The show about a teenage girl with a set of unusual super powers (including turning into CGI goop) was a smash hit. But where are the stars today, and how much have they changed since the '90s?

Annie - Meredith Bishop

Alex's smart, older sister was usually the show's voice of reason. After the show ended, Bishop had roles on other big shows like Felicity, Scrubs, and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Her most recent TV role was on the short-lived TV show Grip and Electric.

Ray - Darris Love

Alex's best friend hasn't exactly made a splash in Hollywood since the show ended. Love had parts on Buffy and NYPD Blue, but otherwise just a few small parts in indie movies. Maybe you recognize him from It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

Robyn - Natanya Ross

Another one of Alex's friends. Ross had also starred in The Babysitter's Club, and followed up Alex Mack with roles on 90210 and Boston Public. But shortly after, Ross developed a drug addiction that forced her to leave Hollywood at just 22 years old.

Since 2016, she's sober and looking for work again. Hopefully she can make a comeback.

Jessica - Jessica Alba

Yes, for three short episodes the original Alex Mack mean girl was played by future Hollywood star Jessica Alba. Of course, you'll recognize her from the Fantastic Four movies. Maybe you even bought baby products from her personal line, The Honest Company.

Nicole - Alexis Fields

Another friend of Alex's with a no-nonsense attitude. Fields's older sister Kim was also on The Facts of Life. Alexis went on to have roles on everything from Sister Sister and Moesha to Sabrina the Teenage Witch. Her last big part was a lead role in the WorldStarHipHop web series All That Matters.

Hunter - Will Estes

Remember Alex's love interest from the show's final episodes? He went on have a recurring role on 7th Heaven and American Dreams, before playing Jamie Reagan on the hit show Blue Bloods.
