When it came time to locate the proper actress for the coveted role of identical twins in a remake of Disney's Hayley Mills classic "The Parent Trap" (1961), an exhaustive casting search occurred around the world. After three callbacks and one screen test, freckle-faced Long Islander Lindsay Lohan won the role. Although just 11 years old when cast, it would be her affiliation with Disney that would make her a household name amongst the teen set, particularly young girls who followed the actress/pop singer's every move. As the tomboy redhead grew into a curvy, beautiful teenager, she continued to impress critics with her work in the family films "Freaky Friday" (2003) and "Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen" (2004), but it was apparent the talented girl was about to outgrow her mouse ears. With the release of Tina Fey's dark comedy, "Mean Girls" (2004), Lohan's fame catapulted to a new level of mainstream recognition. Her effervescent, no-holds-barred performance in the instant classic made her the star of the moment that year. However, at the peak of her fame, inevitable dramas began to unfold - mysterious hospitalizations, drastic weight loss, public break-ups with famous boyfriends, occasional fender-benders and reported bad behavior on set - all of which caused a shift in perception. Things went from bad to worse following several arrests for DUIs and even a carjacking incident which left even her most vehement supporters scratching their heads. Like many fallen child stars before her - a la Corey Haim, Drew Barrymore and countless others - her off-set behavior began affecting her ability to secure work. But drug arrests, paparazzi photos of a seemingly inebriated Lohan, and a public battle in the press with her family cast a dramatic pall over a once promising career, causing friends, family and fans to eventually fear not only for her career, but for her life.
