Jamie Lynn Spears

Jamie Lynn Spears became really popular when she starred in the series, Zoey 101 back in 2005. However, her pregnancy at the age of 16 resulted in her having to quit the show. After that, Spears tried to have a career as a country star but it has not been easy for her since.



JoJo was the queen of the early 2000s when she took over the world with her chart-topping hits. She kept following her music career and has 4 albums now, but the more recent ones were not as popular as the first 2.

She would appear in small roles here and there until her hit show made a comeback as Raven’s Home.

Frankie Muniz is one of the few on the list I actually like. His show was a riot with an unforgettable pre-Breaking Bad Bryan Cranston as the father. That is one very talented man!

Frankie Muniz, as in Wikipedia:

On November 30, 2012, at age 26, Muniz was hospitalized after having a transient ischemic attack, and spoke about the experience on Katie.[46][47] He suffered a second attack a year later, on 25 November 2013.[48] He was interviewed in 2017 and asked about his health, and said he has had no issues.[49][50] It was revealed on Dancing with the Stars on October 9, 2017, that he, in fact, has suffered significant memory loss, forgetting he starred in his own shows including Malcolm in the Middle.[51]

Never even heard of half of them. It's hard to "disappear under the spotlight" if people don't know who you are to begin with.
