Naya Rivera (Santana Lopez) seems like such a pro, you’d think she had a huge list of credits to her name, but the truth is, Glee has been her biggest break so far. It’s not her first role, though, so if you could still swear you’ve seen her someone before you fell in love with the Queen of Mean, here are some other acting gigs Naya’s had.

Her first big acting job was in the short-lived comedy The Royal Family, but we doubt you’d recognize her from that — she was only four years old!  The series was canceled after just one shortened season, and Naya went on to accept one-episode gigs on shows like The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air as well as a few small, recurring roles on shows such as The Bernie Mac Show and Family Matters. She also had some high profile modeling gigs...

Thankfully, Ryan Murphy saw potential in Naya to play a character with a little more substance to her than just “Nice Girl” or “Hottie,” and the rest is gleestory
