This may come as a surprise, but almost all of your favorite Nickelodeon stars were actually acting for years before they landed their first role on the network. Yep, although it is sometimes hard to picture them as any other characters than the ones they’re most known for, some of them were in a lot of other things before being cast in our fave shows and movies.
