The Secret World of Alex Mack

This show was about a girl, Alex Mack who got hit by a truck, which contaminated her with a mysterious chemical called GC-161. This ended up changing her life forever as it gave her a few strange powers. Among these were the ability to zap things, the ability to move objects with her mind, and the ability to turn into 'Capri Sun' and slither around

    Larisa Oleynik was offered a fifth season, a feature Alex Mack film, and "a ton of money," according to Thomas Lynch, but Oleynik said she wanted to keep her character innocent, and that she was burnt out and wanted to finish high school. While that may be true, Larisa took on the role of Alissa Strudwick, Joseph Gordon-Levitt's girlfriend on 3rd Rock from the Sun, for 21 episodes soon after Alex Mack's end.

    Lynch admitted in a 2012 story that it was costume designer Laura Slakey's idea to have Alex Mack wear hats. "She just threw this hat on and I was like, 'Wow, that's perfect,'" Lynch said. "The most iconic thing in the show, I had nothing to do with." Slakey was inspired by the way her father dressed in the 1960s; she imagined that Alex would dress differently since she didn't come across as a popular girl in the pilot script. Initially, Nickelodeon didn't want the hats, but Lynch won that battle. Oleynik couldn't pick a favorite hat when asked years later, but she did bring up a lid she has never gotten out of her mind that the cast and crew referred to as the "condom cap."
