Emma Lahana on "Hellcats" - 5 (2011)

Emma Lahana (Kira, Dino Thunder) reprised her role on The CW drama "Hellcats," during the show's thirteenth episode, titled "Worried Baby Blues." The title refers to the storyline involving her character, Charlotte Monroe, the 19 year-old pregnant sister of main character Savannah (series star Ashley Tisdale). Savannah brings Charlotte some vitamins and a baby book, only to discover that she hasn't seen a doctor or told their parents of her pregnancy. Feeling pressure from her sister, Charlotte withdraws, leaving Savannah no choice but to tell their mother herself. The Monroe family drama spills over and Charlotte tries to run away to Savannah, who demands she go home, so they can deal with the situation as a family. The Monroes finally get past all of their conflicts, thanks to Savannah, and agree to come together to help Charlotte with her baby. Emma Lahana appeared in three scenes of the episode.

Paul Freeman in "Centurion" (2010)

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie villain Paul Freeman (Ivan Ooze, MMPR: The Movie) played the role of Governor Julius Agricola in the British action drama "Centurion." The film tells the story of Roman soldier Quintas Dias (played by Michael Fassbender), who is captured & tortured by the violent Picts only to escape. Dias joins the legendary Ninth Legion as they set out to wipe the Picts out in a bloody war. Freeman's character, Governor Agricola, is the man who orders the march on the Picts to destroy them and return glory to the Romans, so that he & the legion can return to Rome. At the end of the film, when Dias returns to the governor, telling him that he is the only survivor left from the Ninth Legion, thanks to the war, Agricola meets with his peers and decides that the world cannot know of the Ninth Legion's failure and they will not speak of the loss, which means eliminating Dias. Agricola gives the assassination order, but Dias manages to escape the attempt and remain alive.

Michael Copon (Lucas, Time Force) appeared on the first episode of the E! network reality series "Kourtney & Kim Take New York" earlier this year. Michael crosses paths with Kim Kardashian in a club shortly after her move to New York in the episode titled "Life in the Big City." Kim notices Michael from across the room, remembering him from their time together on the teen series "Beyond the Break."

The two enjoy some time together and she invites Michael back to her suite to check out the view, but stops short of returning his attempt at a kiss, as she wishes instead to remain single in the city, especially after she discovers their date has already been reported on the internet.

Tom Hern, James Napier, Antonia Prebble & Beth Allen on "The Tribe" (2002)

The fourth episode of "The Tribe's" fourth series/season features the four starring PR alums in major roles. Tom Hern (Devin, Dino Thunder) continues as Ram, the leader of the invading Technos. This episode finds him dealing with a major security breach when one of his men, the young Ved loses his communicator, which is snatched by one of the Mallrats. Ram uses the incident to get into the head of his general, Jay, played by James Napier (Conner, Dino Thunder). Jay scolds his brother for losing the device, but is torn between his duty to Ram and his brother's safety when Ram suggests Jay choose his brother's punishment. It turns out to be a joke on Ram's part but he warns Ved that if he screws up again, he could be deleted. Ram later tracks the device, which could lead him right to the mall. Meanwhile, outside the city, Antonia Prebble's (Clare, Mystic Force) character, Trudy, continues to travel with her best friend and new mother, Amber, played by Beth Allen (Vella, Overdrive). The girls aren't making it very far in their journey, due to lack of food. They find a shelter for the night and after some long thoughts about her love, Bray (the departed Dwayne Cameron), Amber decides not to go back to the Mallrats in the city, but instead to go look for her other tribe, the Gaians. Trudy disagrees, worried that Amber may not make it and her own desire to return to their friends in the wake of the invasion. In the end, though, Trudy joins Amber, leaving the city behind.
