Sean O’Neal Not to be confused with the Onion AV Club writer of the same name, Sean O’Neal’s resume has been a bit sparse since “Clarissa” left the airwaves. He remains best known for his role as Sam, the best friend to Clarissa who often entered her room through a strategically placed ladder. Since then, he appeared as “Bully #2″ in “Cop and a Half,” and as a “bagman” in “The Cost.” It’s not too late for a come-back though!

Elizabeth Hess Liz Hess made an indelible impression as Clarissa’s hippie-dippie mom, but her work since “Clarissa” has mostly been on the stage. She has also appeared on “Law and Order” and currently teaches acting at New York University.
