  1. Great topic and choices. I also liked Taylor Kitsch as Gambit, too bad he’s getting replaced, it’s not really his fault that the movie sucked. Mmm, my pick would be Tatiana Maslany from Orphan Black, its incredible to watch her play multiple characters on the same show and some times in the same scene.

  2. Kelly Macdonald: most Americans would probably recognize her voice as Merida in Pixar’s “Brave,” but I would love to see more of Kelly Macdonald as a leading lady. She is becoming more well known here in the states, with supporting roles in “No Country for Old Men” (2007) and “Anna Karenina” (2012), and a small role in the final installment of the Harry Potter series (she plays the Grey Lady/ghost of Ravenclaw). Macdonald has demonstrated that she can hold her own as a female lead; in the 2011 film “The Decoy Bride,” in which she plays opposite David Tennant, she is funny, charming, engaging, and sympathetic. I hope her career continues to progress to the point where she is a Hollywood A-list-er and leading lady.

    • Terrific addition, Amber. I didn’t know she voiced Merida in “Brave”. But, knowing that, and recalling her southern twang in “No Country for Old Men”, I already like her!
