11 Actors Who Have Lived Double Lives on the CW Network


I’ve wasted the majority of my adult life drowning in the drama of teen soaps, and let me tell you, I’m not the only 27-year-old who wants to stay in high school forever. In fact, once you nab a role on the CW network, it seems you’re bound to stay in a teenage wasteland forever. As a habitual watcher, I’ve caught a few familiar faces that have lived a thousand lives (or OK, at least like two or three) on the channel. Below, our favorite recurring faces who are no doubt CW royals.

1. Krysten Ritter

Krysten Ritter cuts an unforgettable figure, even as a quick addition to an already established show. She first crashed the party as Gia Goodman in Veronica Mars and side-stepped that ill-fated bus crash in the first episode of season 2. The movie, however, was not as kind. Krysten then nabbed a last-minute recurring role in Gilmore Girls’ seventh season as Rory’s Yale friend Lucy. And she was very fun as young Carol in the Lily Van der Woodsen flashback episode of Gossip Girl. If that backdoor pilot was picked up, it would’ve meant four CW shows, but alas, she only nabs three.
