#11. Alden Ehrenreich

Another face from “Wendigo” is Alden Ehrenreich. He played the youngest sibling, one of those searching for his brother who had gone missing in the middle of the woods. He was one of those unknown actors, with Supernatural being his first ever acting gig. How awesome is that? Especially when you realize who he is now.

It took some time, but he slowly built up his career. The American actor is now one of the most well-known for his most recent roles. He is a young Han Solo in Solo: A Star Wars Story.

Now, granted, the movie isn’t getting a lot of support. There were questions over whether the movie even needed to be made and it didn’t do as well as hoped in the box office. It doesn’t help that there’s a boycott against the movie going on.

But that isn’t the fault of Ehrenreich. He’s taken on the persona of the cocky space smuggler that Harrison Ford made his own back in the 1970s.

What’s even more fun about this connection is how Supernatural originally had a character that was going to be connected to Harrison Ford. Eric Kripke wanted the Winchesters’ surname to be Harrison. Due to there being a Sam Harrison in Lawrence, Kansas, the name had to be changed and we got an even better, more poignant one for the brothers, but that Star Wars connection will remain.
