Career beginnings

Lindsay Lohan began her career at age 5, appearing in ads for Toys R Us and Calvin Klein Kids, among other brands. Her first acting role was on the sitcom "Another World," but she first came to national attention when she played the dual role of Hallie Parker and Annie James in the 1998 remake of "The Parent Trap." Times film critic Kenneth Turan wrote at the time that the film "can't be imagined without its 11-year-old redheaded star, Lindsay Lohan. Her bright spirit and impish smile make for an immensely likable young person we take to our hearts almost at once. Lohan's the soul of this film as much as Hayley Mills was of the original."
