Devon Sawa starred in Final Destination and has been a regular face in movies and on TV for a couple of decades.

But rap fans are always going to know him as Stan, the role he played in Eminem's video for the track of the same name. 

Sawa reflected upon being Stan on the 18th year anniversary of the video:

"Whenever somebody asks me what I've done, it's still the one from back then that I'll be like 'Oh, I was in an Eminem video.' It was iconic, Dr. Dre directed it, Eminem was there and it was early days," Sawa told Vice. "I’m just so proud to say I played some small part of it ... When I did Stan, my agent who I'm still with to this very day advised against it," he said. Nobody was really on board with doing it on my team, and I was the only one who was like 'Oh my god, this guy’s really, really good.' So I did it anyways."

The OG Stan also remains a Stan after all of these years.

"I like anything Kendrick Lamar puts out, I liked Lil Wayne's CD this year," he said. "But I think Eminem's is the greatest that came out this year. I might be biased, but I loved it."
