2. Garey told UVA Magazine about the pair’s early stage roles:


We were the pinheads—circus freaks who appeared in a dream sequence. The costumes were loose-fitting burlap with heavy padding underneath. If that wasn’t humiliating enough, the director of the show could never, never remember our actual names.

3. Years later, Fey named the Mean Girls character Cady Heron after her college friend and roommate.
