Actor and singer/songwriter Emily Osment may be best known for her five seasons as Lilly Truscott, the BFF of Miley Cyrus' character(s) on Disney Channel’s Hannah Montana. However, before landing that high-profile role, Osment was already making her mark in Hollywood by appearing in movies and episodic television. It was fall 2001 when a very young Osment stepped onto Stage 25 on the Warner Bros lot, taking on the role of Lelani Mayolanofavich in The One with the Halloween Party, the sixth episode of Friends’ eighth season, in which Monica and Chandler host a Halloween party. The episode is probably best remembered for giving the world Spudnik (Ross’ disastrous costume that consisted of satellite antenna and a potato), while Chandler stewed over having to parade about in a pink bunny suit – thanks to Monica. Also in the episode, Rachel starts handing out cash (and eventually checks) after running out of candy for trick or treaters. Enter Osment, as one of those lucky trick or treaters.
