Larisa Oleynik in Hawaii Five-0 (2011), Mad Men (2012), and Pretty Little Liars (2012)
Her hair is shorter, and there’s no evidence of a hat, but Larisa is just as adorable today as she was when Alex Mack aired its series finale over 14 years ago.
In her post-Alex Mack years, Larisa romanced Joseph Gordon-Levitt on the big screen in 10 Things I Hate About You, on the small screen in 3rd Rock From the Sun, and in real life from 1999 to 2002.
Taking a break from acting, she attended Sarah Lawrence College, graduating in 2004. Most recently, she’s had runs on the TV shows Hawaii Five-0 (as Jenna Kaye), Mad Men (as Cynthia Cosgrove), and Pretty Little Liars (as Maggie).
In a recent interview with the Huffington Post, Larisa looked back on her Alex Mack stardom. “I still get people asking me to turn into a puddle. It's kind of funny and cute. [...] I think [the powers] were, for me, more of a metaphor for all the weird changes you go through in that time in your life.”
Even more amazing, she still has a thing for beanies. “Um, do you know that I still have so many of those hats? And I wear them,” she confessed.
