* Creator/JenniferAniston has been far more successful than her ''{{Series/Friends}}'' co-stars since the show ended. Creator/CourteneyCox, Creator/LisaKudrow and Matthew Perry have managed to stay in the spotlight as well.

* So far, Creator/ZacEfron is the only ''Film/HighSchoolMusical'' cast member to achieve mainstream success with films like ''[[Film/SeventeenAgain 17 Again]]'' and ''Film/{{Neighbors}}''. Creator/VanessaHudgens has done moderately well with a career in singing and Broadway and Creator/AshleyTisdale made a mark on TV, while everyone else has faded into obscurity.

Added DiffLines:

* Music/{{Fun}} guitarist Jack Antanoff has become the highest profile member of the group during its "indefinite hiatus": Not only has his side-project band Bleachers become one of the biggest alt-rock radio success stories of the late-2010s, but he's also become an in-demand songwriter and producer who has worked on huge hits for Music/TaylorSwift and Music/{{Lorde}}. Compare this to Fun's frontman Nate Ruess, whose solo career was highly anticipated, but his album flopped and his only real success was a #1 duet with Music/{{Pink}}.

* ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings'' is an inverted case as many of the main cast members have achieved success with some earning awards for their other movies and starring in other franchises. The ones who are struggling their careers are Dominic Monaghan (Merry) and Billy Boyd (Pipin).



* When the revival for ''Series/GilmoreGirls'' was announced, most of the main cast and many of the supporting characters from the series were returning for four new movies on Netflix. The only actor definitely not returning was Edward Harriman who had died in early 2015 and also, it seemed for a while, Creator/MelissaMcCarthy who played "Sookie St. James". Since the original series ended [=McCarthy=] had a StarMakingRole in ''Film/Bridesmaids'', becoming a sought after comedic film actress and part of ''Bridesmaids'' director Paul Feig's ProductionPosse with ''Film/TheHeat'', ''Film/{{Spy}}'' and ''Film/{{Ghostbusters 2016}}''. In the press it was reported that ''Gilmore Girls'' creator Amy Sherman-Palladino assumed that [=McCarthy=] was now too busy to appear in the new movies, while [=McCarthy=] claimed she hadn't been asked. Finally in April 2016 [=McCarthy=] announced on the EllenDegeneres show that they worked out a deal and she will be returning as "Sookie".

** It happened again to Heubel several years later when he got his biggest break to date as a member of the comedy troupe ''Series/HumanGiant'' featuring himself, Paul Scheer and Creator/AzizAnsari. The show was critically acclaimed and all three got decent popularity as equals, but the show went on hiatus in 2008. Since then Scheer and Heubel have done well for themselves, but Ansari's popularity exploded after appearing in the film ''FunnyPeople'', the success of his comedy records and his role on ''Series/ParksAndRecreation''.

* Music/RobbieWilliams did this to Music/TakeThat when he left but after their reunion, the band have eclipsed Robbie again. Though of course, Take That had already split shortly before Robbie's debut single came out (he himself had of course been sacked from the band some time before), so they weren't likely to be putting up much competition(!) Of course, Robbie's successful solo career does stand in sharp contrast to the failure of the remaining members' post-split (pre-reunion) solo efforts.

* Four young women in Mixed Martial Arts formed a stable of sorts called the Four Horsewomen, after the pro wrestling stable the Four Horsemen. Of the four of them, Creator/RondaRousey nearly single-handedly mainstreamed women's MMA and built up an impressive streak of very fast wins. Shayna Baszler is a very distant second - she's respected as an innovative submissionist, but never had a good enough standup to really succeed in MMA, but has achieved success outside of MMA in UsefulNotes/{{catch as catch can}} circles that eventually translated into [[ProfessionalWrestling Professional Wrestling]], becoming associated with an Wrestling/{{ROH}} TagTeam, a Wrestling/{{SHIMMER}} Trio, winning quite a few belts on the US independent circuit(PREMIER, AIW, [=QPro=]) and Australia(NHPW), as well as making enough splash in World Wonder Ring STARDOM to win Wrestling/{{D|ramaticDreamTeam}}DT's infamous Ironman Heavymetalweight belt. As for the other two, Jessamyn Duke was known for being pretty and turning out to have a glass jaw that stopped her career in her tracks, and Marina Shafr is known only for being the fourth woman in the Four Horsewomen.
