  1. Carly Pope, Popular, TV, 1999-2001.    The Orange County girl of a French- Portuguese-Latino family lost the co-lead rôle of Sam McPherson – but still won the full 43 episodes as Lily Esposito. She was Lily Soto (!) a dozen years later in The Mentalist. Co-creator Ryan Murphy went on to much better things during 2009-2016: Glee, American Horror Story, Scream Queens and the multi Emmy-winning The People v OJ Simpson: American Crime Story.
