Throwback Thursday: Elizabeth Banks' High School Years

You've most recently seen Elizabeth Banks looking glamorous at the red carpet premieres of "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay" -- and while she was a normal '90s high schooler, it looks like she was always meant to be a star.

The actress grew up in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, where she participated in theatrical productions, was on the cheerleading squad and attended school dances.

Check out the video for old '90s yearbook photos that SplashNews dug up of Elizabeth Mitchell (yes, she changed her name) -- and take a peek at her most recent glam appearances:
