Danielle Panabaker Reveals She Was Almost Cady in 'Mean Girls'

Danielle Panabaker Reveals She Was Almost Cady in 'Mean Girls'

Danielle Panabaker just dropped a bombshell on us all.

The Flash actress was featured on Michael Rosenbaum‘s podcast that she could’ve been one of the characters in Mean Girls — and not just any character — CADY!

While chatting with Michael, he asked if she had ever cried after an audition, and she definitely did after losing the role to Lindsay Lohan.

“That director – so, this is going to go back…so one of the first things I ever came to LA for was to screen test for Freaky Friday,” Danielle shared. “I tested for it and the producer was Andrew Gunn and the director was Mark Waters.”

She continues, “It didn’t go my way, obviously, and then the script for Mean Girls came around and I loved the script, and Mark was directing that, as well.”

“I went in and I did table reads for Paramount and everything and originally, I think, I mean look, my agent could’ve been lying to me…but originally they were looking at me and Lindsay,” Danielle adds.

This means she was up against Lindsay for not just one role, but two. Lindsay also starred in Freaky Friday. However, she’s our Caitlin Snow and Killer Frost now, so we’re definitely happy about that.

“Lindsay [was supposed] to play the Regina George role and then at the last minute they switched it,” Danielle says. “So, I didn’t get it. And I like cried on the couch. I was so sad.”
