Coming from a long line of filmmakers going back to her great-grandparents producer George Bilson and writer Hattie Bilson, Rachel Bilson rose to fame almost immediately after entering the acting game. After only a handful of TV guest roles, she landed a recurring part on Fox's hit teen soap The O.C. in 2003 and was soon bumped up to regular cast member. She'd stick with the series until it ended its run in 2007, but in the meantime, she appeared in feature films like the 2006romantic drama The Last Kiss. Bilson would then go on to appear in films like the fantasy themed action movie Jumper, and the sentimental romance Waiting for Forever. In 2011, Bilson returned to the small screen with a leading role on the comedy/drama series Hart of Dixie.
