What do actors Pej Vahdat, Joel Moore, Ryan Cartwright, Carla Gallo and Michael Grant Terry all have in common? Well, aside from helping fill out the Jeffersonian’s revolving cast of interns (or as they’re affectionally referred to by fans as “Squinterns”) on the hit FOX series BONES since the whole “Gormogon” incident left Zach… errr… otherwise occupied, each and every one has seen their career surge since doing so.
Evidently, struggling actors are no longer turning to Scientology to get their name out there when an internship on BONES has proven to be just as effective! Or at least that was our conclusion after spending some time investigating the pre-and-post BONES careers of the following actors five.
