Stars Discovered by Chance

Rosario Dawson

Dawson could hardly have been more passive in her rise to stardom. The New York native, who grew up poor and lived like a vagabond throughout much of her young adult life, was sitting on the stoop of the apartment building she was squatting in when a young photographer and a screenwriter approached her about starring in their new project. Dawson agreed, because, why not? The movie, "Kids," introduced her to audiences around the globe.-XFINITY Entertainment Staff
