We understand the power of costumes and makeup, but we never would have thought that the creepy little girl from "The Ring" would turn out to be a blond stunner.
The 2002 horror movie put Daveigh Chase's (hideously altered) face on the map, but since her sinister beginnings Chase has gone on to find "Big Love" in the industry. The 21-year-old starred in the celebrated HBO series for five years, also landing roles in shows such as "Without a Trace" and "Mercy."
Check out these actors who've blossomed after their scary starts:
Daveigh Chase, "The Ring" (2002)
Abigail Breslin, "Signs" (2002)
Haley Joel Osment, "The Sixth Sense" (1999)
