And if you don't remember her in 7th Heaven, you may recall the actress in Baywatch.

In 1995, Mila played Annie in Baywatch and began her rise to stardom.

From an extra on a bus to a Broadway legend! Lin-Manuel Miranda rapped in How I Met Your Mother before performing on stage

Even the most dedicated Broadway fans may forget that Lin-Manuel, 43, made a guest appearance in the hit TV series How I Met Your Mother.

In season nine during the episode titled Bedtime Stories, the musical prodigy makes a cameo as a character named Gus.

His role as an extra came in the final season the show and just five years after the creation of his first big Broadway musical, In The Heights.

During the episode, Marshall was trying to get his young son, Marvin, to fall asleep on the train, however the little boy was struggling to get some shut-eye.

The father, who was tired from his cross country road trip to make it to Barney and Robin's wedding, attempted to sing a few rhymes to help his son fall asleep.

And while Marshall's tune didn't do the trick, Gus was there to help.

Gus was a fellow passenger on the train who had a short interaction with the father.

The majority of Gus' dialogue involved rapping as a nod to Lin-Manuel's impressive career as a singer and lyricist.

However, Marshall just thought he was showing off.

Towards the end of the episode, the bus got a flat tire and the passengers were sent outside to watch a fireworks show.

The scene was meant to be a reference to the Broadway star's award-winning musical.

And while Lin-Manuel may have gained some exposure from making an appearance on the show, that wasn't the only reason he graced the screen in How I Met Your Mother.

The playwright also had connections to the TV show's creators, Carter Bays and Craig Thomas.

Now Lin-Manuel has become a full-blown star and took the industry by storm when he wrote, produced and starred in the Broadway musical Hamilton.

He continues to leave fans jaw-dropped as he continues to releases new musical numbers for various TV shows and movies.

Matthew McConaughey went from a murder victim to an Oscar winner as he first appeared in an episode of Unsolved Mysteries

Although many people assume Matthew, 53, first graced Hollywood with his iconic role of David Wooderson in Dazed and Confused, the star started acting before that.

In a 1992 episode of Unsolved Mysteries, fans may spot Matthew making his debut on the show, re-enacting a segment about a murder victim.

While mowing his mother's lawn, Larry spots a sexual predator who is on the run for murder.

Now, the Texan actor is still portraying fearless characters in films like Interstellar, True Detective and more.

The High School Musical star played a teenage version of the character known as Simon.

The scene is brief and shows the 15-year-old in his first-ever big screen appearance.
