Following years of public absence, Amanda Bynes “broke the internet” with a photoshoot and interview with Paper Magazine. During the profile, which focuses on her journey to sobriety, the aftermath of her public mess-ups, and her plans for the future, many references are made to her fame as an actor and the roles that brought her into the spotlight in the first place. Bynes is notably candid when talking about her health during and after filming a handful of her high-profile projects, even indicating when and where her drug use got in the way of both her performances and her perception of herself as an actress.

Since the interview tracked through and gave exclusive insight into Bynes’ acting career (up until she announced on Twitter that she was quitting), here’s a look back at the timeline of Bynes’ major projects, and the characters she famously played:

Of her co-star, Bynes revealed to Paper “I totally fought for Channing [to get cast in] that movie because he wasn’t famous yet… I was like, ‘This guy’s a star — every girl will love him!'” Ultimately, they gave him the role, in part because Bynes told producers to trust her.
