24 star Mary Lynn Rajskub spent her first few months on the long-running drama convinced her character was about to die.
The actress, who plays pregnant espionage expert Chloe O'Brian on the show, admits she didn't think her character would be around for very long.
She says, "I thought I'd be fired after four episodes. I spent the first three years being hired for 'OK, two more... three more... four more...'
"And then, early on, they gave me a baby to put under my desk... I was like, 'Oh, I am so out of here. This character is so gone.' But then it worked."
