Whenever I get super into a TV show or movie, it becomes so hard for me to imagine anyone else playing my favorite roles. I mean, playing Angela in My So-Called Life pretty much made Claire Danes’ career, right? Who else could portray an angsty redhead obsessed with Jordan Catalano? Certainly not Alicia Silverstone? That’s insane! Alicia Silverstone is practically the opposite of Angela because she is Cher in Clueless! Rich, popular, and always nosing into other people’s business–nothing like Angela. OK so maybe actresses CAN play other roles (in some crazy alternate universe).
It is their job to embody all kinds of personalities, after all. So here is our roundup of all the could have been. Check out 15 actresses that were up for the part, but just didn’t make the cut.
