Lilo from "Lilo and Stitch" and Samara from "The Ring" were played by the same girl!
That’s right, actress Daveigh Chase was both the lovable, little, Elvis-loving, Hawaiian girl, and the creepy child who escapes from a TV set and goes on a mass killing spree! She played both roles in 2002, at the age of only 12!
And while they are terrifyingly different from one another, they both received almost the same amount of fame. In 2003, at the age of only 13, Daveigh won the “Best Villain” award at the MTV Movie Awards. “Lilo and Stitch” was nominated for the Oscars. It lost to “Spirited Away”- which she was also in! You can spot Daveigh on Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Cold Case, CSI, etc.
Variety clearly isn’t something that’s missing from her career! In fact, she even dabbled in music for a while and was selected by Steven Spielberg to sing “God Bless America” in A.I.
