14+ Netflix Stars We Knew We Recognized From Somewhere

When you're watching your new fave show on Netflix, do you ever get that annoying feeling like you've seen a character before? I get it all the time, so I figured "Why not figure out exactly where I know that person from?"

Hopefully this handy guide helps ease your mind a little bit so you can relax during your next Netflix binge.

1. You know Elizabeth Reaser as Shirley Crain in "The Haunting Of Hill House."

IMDb / Twilight Wiki / Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice Wiki

But the first time you saw her was probably as Esme Cullen in the Twilight franchise. Also, Grey's Anatomy fans will definitely remember her as Karev's love interest Rebecca Pope aka Ava aka No Face Girl.

2. You know Miranda Otto as Zelda Spellman in "The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina."


But before she ever cast spells, she was kicking butt among the other Riders of Rohan as Eowyn in the Lord of the Rings franchise. Her "I am no man!" line as she stabs a Nazg├╗l is about as epic a moment as the series has.

3. Fans of "The Haunting of Hill House" probably recognize Michiel Huisman's Steven Crain.


Before he ever entered Hill House, Huisman was smooching up on the Khaleesi, playing Daario Naharis in Game of Thrones.

4. You know Elden Henson as Foggy Nelson in "Daredevil."

But, depending on when you grow up, you probably recognize his face even better as either Fulton Reed in The Mighty Ducks or Devon Sawa's friend Pnub in Idle Hands.

5. Kiernan Shipka has been crushing the title role in "Chilling Adventures of Sabrina."

But the young actress is actually a veteran of the television scene, having played Sally Draper for years on the hit series Mad Men.

6. You know Vincent D'Onofrio as WIlson Fisk (aka Kingpin) in "Daredevil."

And it's certainly possible that you watched him before that as Robert Goren in Law & Order: Criminal Intent. But back in 1997, did you realize that it was D'Onofrio playing the alien-possessed Edgar in Men in Black?

7. You know L. Scott Caldwell as Nana Ruth in "Chilling Adventures of Sabrina."

But fans of LOST will know her much better as the long-standing supporting character Rose Nadler. Rose and her husband Bernard felt much like the rest of us watching LOST and decided to opt out of the island's drama.

9. You're watching Abigal F. Cowen play Dorcas in "Chilling Adventures of Sabrina."

Riverdale Wiki / IMDb

But if you can't figure out where you recognize her from, just look back to the most recent season of Stranger Things, where she played Vicki.

10. Most recently, you saw Henry Thomas play the young Hugh Crain in "The Haunting of Hill House."


But he's also the face of a huge part of a lot of '80s kids' childhoods. He played Elliott in E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial.

13. Cristin Milioti was the reluctant heroine of the "Black Mirror" episode "USS Callister."


But audiences got their first and biggest look at her in the final, controversial season of How I Met Your Mother, where she played the titular mother, Tracy.

16. Lucy Davis is a treasure, playing Hilda Spellman in "Chilling Adventures of Sabrina."

Chances are you've seen Lucy Davis before. It's just a question of whether you first saw her as Dawn Tinsley in the U.K. version of The Office or as Dianne in Shaun of the Dead.

15. You saw Benedict Wong play Shaun Li in the "Black Mirror" episode "Hated in the Nation."

But if it's driving you nuts to figure out where you know him from, he's better known for playing Wong in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, beginning with Doctor Strange.

8. You watched Jerome Flynn play Hector in the "Black Mirror" episode "Shut Up and Dance."

But if it was really bugging you to figure out where you knew him from, you need look no further than Game of Thrones, where Flynn plays the incorrigible Bronn.

11. You saw Wyatt Russell play Cooper Redfield in the "Black Mirror" episode "Playtest."

A few years before starring in his own Black Mirror episode, Russell starred alongside Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum in 22 Jump Street as football star Zook.

12. Dacre Montgomery definitely turned heads as Billy Hargrove in "Stranger Things."


His big breakout role, however, happened earlier in the year, when he starred as Jason in the Power Rangers movie reboot.

14. Speaking of "USS Callister," you remember Jesse Plemons, who played Robert Daley?


Fans of Breaking Bad will remember the actor as Todd, who was the secondary antagonist for much of the series' fifth and final season.
