Flashback Friday: Stars Before Their Big Break

With stars being born right before our eyes (hello Hunger Games stars!), it makes us think about today’s current stars and what they were like right before their big break. Earlier this week, Zac Efron‘s 2005 episode of the MTV show Room Raiders surfaced, thanks to some hardcore fans. Remember when he was on the WB show Summerland? Most people don’t.

Here are stars before their big break:

Zac Efron on Room Raiders

Jessica Alba on The Secret World of Alex Mack

Lady Gaga on Boiling Point

Ryan Gosling on Are You Afraid of the Dark?

Miley Cyrus in Big Fish

Maroon 5 on Room Raiders
