Rachael Leigh Cook: Laney Boggs
Oversized glasses and sloppy clothes did little to hide the fact that Rachael Leigh Cook is a beauty through and through. But her girl-next-door charm and sarcastic wit totally won us over in the end. With She’s All That, the babyfaced actress became one of the “It Girls” of the late 1990s and early aughts.
Rachael followed up her breakout role with the lead (Josie) in Josie and the Pussycats, and she’s also starred in a hodgepodge of dramas (Antitrust, Texas Rangers, 11:14), comedies (Scorched, Bookies), and TV shows (miniseries Into the West, Las Vegas, Psych). In 2004, Rachael married The Vampire Diaries actor Daniel Gillies, who’s described his wife as “delicious.” Well, we won’t argue with that! In September 2013, the actress gave birth to their first child, Charlotte Easton Gillies.
Rachael currently stars as FBI agent Kate Moretti on the TNT crime drama Perception, opposite Eric McCormack.
