Leonardo DiCaprio in Growing Pains, Michelle Williams in Dawson's Creek, James Franco in Freaks and Geeks… every major star must get his/her start somewhere.

This list includes the likes of Brooklyn Decker, Anne V. and Kate Upton (you may have heard of them) and as of March 2013, a fresh-faced stunner by the name of Kate Bock. I caught up with the Vancouver-based centerfold in between snaps to get her take on newfound fame.
