Elisha Cuthbert was someone that a lot of us grew up with. She was in one of the best kids' shows of all time, Are You Afraid Of The Dark?. As she grew up, she seemed to fade back out of the spotlight. While she tried to make the transition into film, it just didn't seem to go as she planned. NickelodeonShe was a few years into her role on the show 24, when she decided to start pursuing film. She had her first big starring role in a movie called The Girl Next Door that came out in 2004.
