DAVEIGH Chase is known for playing Samara in supernatural blockbuster The Ring.

Daveigh played terrifying villain Samara in The Ring
Daveigh won the MTV Movie Award for best villain
Samara, the villain of the movie, is a young girl who has psychic abilities.
During the film, the character kills off and torments those around her – and ultimately reaches her grisly end by being thrown into a well.
In The Ring, Samara wears a filthy white gown, with long locks that cover a large portion of her face.
Daveigh’s portrayal of the antagonist was award-winning, as she scooped MTV’s Best Villain of 2003 ahead of Colin Farrell and Daniel Day-Lewis.
After starring in The Ring, the US actress went on to feature in films including Yellow, Beethoven’s 5th and Carolina.
She has also picked up acting credits in TV shows Cold Case, CSI and Big Love.
Nowadays, Daveigh couldn’t look more different to her on-screen alter-ego.
Matted hair and creepy clothes are nowhere to be seen in the 31-year-old’s glamorous style.
Over the years, Daveigh has dabbled with auburn and blonde locks.
As she still works in the showbiz industry, she is regularly spotted on the red carpet.
Even though it’s been 20 years since her role in The Ring, people can’t believe how different Daveigh looks today.
Daveigh isn’t the only child star who’s managed to make their career a success.
Kate Maberly played little Mary Lennox in the Secret Garden – and she has gone on to make a new name for herself in the world of showbusiness.
And the actress who played Cavegirl in a CBBC show now works as a dancer and occasional presenter.
