6 YouTubers Who Appeared in Movies Before Becoming Famous on YT
These days, gaining fame from creating a successful YouTube channel is nothing unusual; people like Zoe Sugg, Tyler Oakley and Smosh probably have bigger following than many mainstream celebrities! But before the world of YT completely took over, aspiring entertainers were trying to make it big the good old fashion way — getting small roles in various movies in hopes of getting their names out there.
Believe it or not, some of your all-time favorite YouTubers actually appeared in some HUGE films like Harry Potter and X-Men way before they ever sat down in front of a camera in their bedrooms. Sure, their acting careers may not have worked out in the end, but each of the following are most definitely on-screen successes in their own rights.
We know it's a bit hard to tell from the picture above, but Zoe Sugg was, in fact, in the first Harry Potter film! A then-11-year-old Zoella played an uncredited part of a Hufflepuff student who sat behind Ron Weasley in Potions class. The scene got deleted from the final version of the movie, but could be viewed in the DVD bonus features.
