Lacey Chabert starred as little Claudia Salinger on one of the most depressing TV shows ever, "Party of Five" -- and today, she turns 30!

The show, which ran from 1994-2000 on FOX, is known for its somber plot-lines, which included dead parents, alcoholism, a cancer battle, domestic violence, a miscarriage and mental illness.

Thankfully, most of the stars ended up having some happy careers after the movie.

Lacey would go on to play Gretchen Wieners in "Mean Girls" and do voice work for "The Wild Thornberrys," "Young Justice," "Transformers: Rescue Bots" and "The Spectacular Spider-Man."

Neve Campbell would have success with the "Scream" franchise, Matthew Fox starred on "Lost" while Scott Wolf would go on to star on "Everwood" and "V."

And Jennifer Love Hewitt, who played virginal Sarah on the show, would get her own short-lived spinoff ("Time Of Your Life"), star on "Ghost Whisperer" and Lifetime's current hit "The Client List."
