As well as the cast of the girls, there was another stand out character in the film in the form of Damian.

Dressed in an impressive Santa suit he uttered the now infamous ‘you to Glen Coco’ while handing out Christmas candy canes.

Damian was a fan favourite of the film with his constant flourish of one-liners such as ‘she doesn’t even go here’.

He was actually played by 26-year-old actor, Daniel Franzese.

Yes we know what you are thinking. He looks really different nowadays but hey we all grow up some day.

Daniel has grown a beard, got engaged, and is apparently as addicted to Pokemon Go as the rest of the world.

He is of course still clinging onto his Mean Girls fame and who can really blame him?

In recent years, Damian has appeared in American TV shows and done Broadway theatre performances.

Bizarrely he habit and a trade mark of saying he has a ‘nana’ in nearly all his films. Remember when he told Tina Fey: “My nana takes my wig off when she’s drunk”?

Although in Mean Girls he was declared as ‘too gay to function’,Daniel didn’t actually come out as gay until two years ago –

When he came out, he famously wrote a letter to his character in Mean Girls: “You became an iconic character that people looked up to – I wished I’d had you as a role model when I was younger.

“There were industry people who had seen me play you in Mean Girls but never seen me read in an audition but still denied me to be seen for ‘masculine’ roles.

“Damian, you had ruined my life and I was really p***ed at you. I became celibate for a year and a half.

“I didn’t go to any gay bars, have any flings and I lied to anyone who asked if I was gay.

“I even brought a girl to the ‘Mean Girls’ premiere and kissed her on the red carpet, making her my unwitting beard. Meanwhile, I was still in the closet.

“My friends and family all knew the truth but now it’s time everyone does.

“Perhaps this will help someone else. I’m not afraid anymore. Of Hollywood, the closet or mean girls. Thank you for that, Damian. (And Tina.)”
