The actress who gave some life advice to Alexa Demie’s Maddy was only in one episode in the first season but she’s so lovely it seemed a shame to not included her. Since her stint, she’s been cast in the thriller Blackwater Lane and released a memoir, Tell Me Everything. Minka is also tipped to star in the new Netflix series Ransom Canyon, which will see her return to Texas.

Lukas Gage – Tyler Clarkson

Again this fella was only in a few episodes but he’s both so nice and had such a horrible time being blackmailed into taking the blame for sexually assaulting Maddy that it seems a waste. Luckily, he’s also been up to loads. After featuring in that viral video that saw a director unknowingly tell him his apartment was a dump, he’s gone to star in The White Lotus, the environmental action-thriller How To Blow Up A Pipeline. He is currently filming the sequel to the horror film Smile. Fans of the Netflix series You will also recognise Lukas from the show’s fourth season as Adam.
