Stars Discovered by Chance

Ellen Pompeo

Many struggling actresses work as waitresses to pay the bills. Ellen Pompeo, on the other hand, is an actress because she was a waitress. The future star was bartending at the SoHo Bar & Grill in New York when a casting director spotted her and thought she’d be a good fit for a L’Oreal ad campaign. A few small TV and film roles later, and Pompeo landed the “Grey’s Anatomy” gig that would make her a star.-XFINITY Entertainment Staff
