Hilary Duff as Sam Montgomery

Fun fact: Hilary told People that kissing Chad was better than her first kiss but "way more awkward" because of the amount of people watching. They actually practiced kissing in one of their trailers before they shot their first kiss three days into filming. Ooh la la.

Chad Michael Murray as Austin Ames

Fun fact: Rupert Grint, aka Ron Weasley, was initially offered the role of Austin Ames but had to turn it down due to filming conflicts with Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.

Jennifer Coolidge as Fiona

Fun fact: Jennifer had to be on set much earlier than the rest of the cast due to the amount of makeup they put on her. She wore blue contacts for the role and fake nails that were actually taped on because she's allergic to glue!

Regina King as Rhonda

Fun fact: A Cinderella Story was the third movie Regina appeared in with Jennifer Coolidge. They appeared together in Down to Earth in 2001 and Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde in 2003.

Dan Byrd as Carter Farrell

Fun fact: In an interview with About Entertainment, Dan confirmed exactly what kind of a person Hilary Duff is. He said, "She'’s just incredibly down-to-earth and just a genuinely nice person. There'’s really no dirt I can give you on her because there’'s nothing there." No surprise! We ❤️ Hilary.

Andrea Avery as Gabriella

Fun fact: The same year that A Cinderella Story was released, Andrea appeared in the movie First Daughter with Katie Holmes.

Madeline Zima as Brianna

Fun fact: Before Madeline played a nasty wicked stepsister, she played Grace Sheffield for six years on The Nanny!
