The Shameless
Star You Forgot
Was On Ned's
Nickelodeon's "Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide" ran for three seasons between 2004 and 2007, centering around Ned Bigby and his adventures through middle school. During the Season 2 episode "Upperclassmen & Gross Biology Dissection," Ned gives a tour of the school to a psychotic 5th grader named Palmer Noid who is played by “Shameless” star Cameron Monaghan.
Monaghan is most well known for playing Ian Gallagher on "Shameless," an ambitious, strong-willed member of the Gallagher clan who often finds himself on the wrong side of the law. However, throughout the “Ned’s Declassified” episode, Monaghan, as a maniacal 5th grader, creates chaos by ripping open lockers with a crowbar to rifle through people’s possessions and steal their clothes.
Although the two shows differ greatly, it’s somewhat comical that both of the characters Monaghan portrayed share the same destructive and chaotic tendencies. Monaghan's appearance in "Ned's Declassified" is exceptionally brief, but it is certainly memorable.
