The terrifying girl from The Ring grew up to be gorgeous

Can you believe it's been 15 years since The Ring first hit theaters? The haunting image of Samara, the girl in the well seeking her revenge on everyone who somehow still owns a VCR still hasn't left our heads. And it turns out, the actress who starred as the gruesome gal is actually gorgeous in real life. Get to know Daveigh Chase and what she's been doing since she first scared the pants off of us.

She was actually a super-cute kid

As a kid, Chase was super cute—it was just hard to tell when she was hiding behind matted black hair and makeup designed to make her look like a reanimated corpse. Here she is at at the premiere of The Ring in 2002., looking vibrant and healthy…and blonde!

You've probably heard her voice, even if you hadn't seen her face

In 2002, she starred not in just The Ring, but also voiced Lilo in Lilo & Stitch (2002). She reprised her role for two Lilo & Stitch video games, as well as the Lilo & Stitch cartoon series, from 2003 to 2006; and direct-to-video franchise films Stitch! The Movie (2003) and Leroy & Stitch (2006).

Chase also voice Kiwako Seto in the Let It Die video game in 2016 and voiced the titular Betsy in Betsy's Kindergarten Adventures from 2007 to 2010.

She lives in (and loves) Los Angeles

Though she grew up in Albany, Oregon, Chase's Instagram feed can very well double as a tourism guide for Los Angeles, where she currently lives. Her views of the skyline alone (like here above Mulholland Drive) could be used for a brochure or ten.

She's a dog person

A bulk of Chase's Instagram account is dedicated to her quality time spent with really cute pooches. It looks like they love her back.

She's worked pretty consistently since childhood

Chase had a memorable arc as the troublemaking teen bride Rhonda Volmer on Big Love from 2006 to 2011. She's also appeared on TV shows like CSI, ER, Charmed, Cold Case and Without A Trace, as well as in the Donnie Darko (2001) sequel S. Darko (2009). Her most recent projects have been independent films, including American Romance (2016) and Jack Goes Home (2016).

She's got a few vices

Can you picture Samara Morgan at a hookah bar? Of course not. Chase has come a long way from her creepy well-dwelling days: the actress enjoys hookah and smoking cigarettes—sometimes hand-rolled ones, if her Instagram feed is any indication. Maybe she's trying to forget how she looked crawling out of a TV as a kid.

She has a sense of humor

Chase posted this composite photo of herself today and as Samara Morgan, asking her Instagram followers, "Should I be a slutty Samara for Halloween?"

She's seriously stunning

Chase grew up into a gorgeous young woman, and she has no problems flaunting it. (It also looks like all the water scenes from The Ring haven't scarred her, either.) Go on, girl!

She delivered a dying man to a hospital, then fled

TMZ reported that after midnight on Feb. 15, 2017, Chase rushed a dying man to a hospital in Los Angeles, left him outside, then hightailed it out of there. The site reported that Chase may have been hanging out with him that day. When police ran Chase's name, they discovered an outstanding warrant for her arrest in a completely unrelated case, though at the time of this writing, details about the other case have not been reported.

According to the New York Daily News, Chase is "not a suspect in the death and authorities have reason to believe the man overdosed and the actress was just trying to get him to the hospital."

She may be a bad driver

Fox News reported that Chase was arrested on Feb. 22, 2017 for a traffic-related violation and released after posting $1,805 bail. "A rep for Chase told Fox News the actress was arrested on a warrant for failing to appear in court for a traffic violation."

According to Fox News, she was also questioned about the unidentified man's fatal overdose, but at the time of this writing, she does not face any charges in connection with that death.

She's taking a break from acting

While Chase had projects in 2016, her schedule for 2017 looks totally open. From the looks of her Instagram, she's been on a road trip in an RV and possibly canoodling with a mysterious shirtless hunk (maybe the same one with whom she traveled to a mountainous region). Also ever-present are Chase's cats.
