Within the past five years, since the release of Bridesmaids, actress Melissa McCarthy has become a huge star. But before that, she already had a lucrative career as Sookie St. James on the family drama series Gilmore Girls. The series ran from 2000 on The WB and stuck with the network when it turned into The CW until it was canceled after its seventh season in 2007, and Melissa McCarthy appeared in all 153 episodes.
