Have you ever watched a commercial and thought that one of the stars looked familiar? Plenty of actors have done advertising work in the past, sometimes when getting into the industry, other times when they were already established. It’s incredible the kind of impact these commercials can have on a person’s career.
Fans of Magnum ice cream will probably recognize Rachel Bilson. The actress once featured in their commercials as a woman who battled through traffic to get her hands on the brand’s delectable ice cream.
However, this is hardly Bilson’s biggest role. Back in the ‘00s, she had a central role in the teen drama ‘The O.C.’ as Summer Roberts. Her popularity later led the actress to get her own series in the form of the dramedy ‘Hart of Dixie.’
