A Downton Abbey alumnus who has since cracked America to be the British equivalent to Mia Wasikowska, a willowy doe-eyed youngster, who made her big movie footprint by appearing in a live action Disney fairytale. - Dale

Emma Thompson is one of the best actresses we have ever had. She was fantastic in Harry Potter, Nanny McPhee, Love Actually and Howard's End as well as many more. A brilliant actress.V4 Comments
Beautiful, lusty and lustful! She knows how to do it!V1 Comment
Ground breaking, mainstream defying role in Basic Instinct
Her acting in Casino was superb. One of the best female performances I've seen.
She was nominated for an Academy Award for Casino. She should have won. What an outstanding performance.V1 Comment
Gets many " wrong " movies. I've seen movies of her so bad because she ( a talented actress ) had to play with very bad ( and unknown for that matter ) actors and actresses ( unwatchable movies because of them ). When she gets a movie with descent co-stars you really see her talent. If she would had more worthy films, she would have been a bigger name in the movie industry. Seems that Hollywood is blind to see a talented actress like Eliza Dushku and it's really a pitty because she don't get any younger as time pass by.
Damn, she is really talented. I never truly realized until more recently.
The completely underrated, original T.V. series "Dollhouse" would have been partially empty without her unique versatility and commanding presence to lead the amazing cast.
Eliza Dushku has matured into an acting force to be reckoned with. She needs to be a leading lady in more productions. She will not disappoint.
Brilliant diversity character actress.
Plays such a wide repertoire of roles from Cold Mountain, to Chicago, to Bridget Jones and sells it every time! Always surprises she isn't rated higher.
Versitile and completely believable. Ability to immerse herself in roles like few others And tell me, who gets accents better the Rene?
She is great in hight school musical! Best actress
She is great. Should be on the list - bunnylipsV3 Comments
Sarah Michelle Gellar is ( even when everybody knows her ) very underrated for her acting skills. A child actress who did get her big break in " Buffy the vampire slayer ". After that she was casted in movies with her " Buffy " image, " I know what you did last summer ", " Cruel intentions ", " Scream 2 ", " Scooby-Doo 1 & 2 ", " The Grudge 1 & 2 " etc... Came her lesser known work ( but also her best outstanding performances ) in movies like " Harvard man ", " Veronika decides to die ", " Possession ", " The Air that I breathe "... It's in fact her lesser known work that proves that she's a very good ( even exeptional at times ) but underrated actress. A very pretty actress who deserves better and more recognition and attention.
She did a wonderful job as buffy the vampire slayer and she is so pretty and the movies she is doing now are so great and I love love her to death.
She's cute in some kind of funny way but she's not that great as an actress. She's just ok. On the other hand I think she has one of the most boring and annoying voice I've ever heard.
She should've win an oscar for her performance in Cruel Intentions, she is very good and very underratedV4 Comments
She's awesome! Just check out Where the heart is, and Double Jeopardy... 2 totally different movies, but she makes her character work in both!
DoubleJeopordy one of the best roll I seen done by any one. She is 99 you have to be joking
She is simply fantastic, very credible, and I really enjoy watching her variou personalities throughout the various characters she has protrayed.V3 Comments
Absolutely love this complex and highly entertaining actress
Very attractive actress. It's like she don't age. Great talent who deserves better.
She did so amazing in The Ugly Truth, Roswell (TV show), 27 Dresses, Love Comes Softly and Life as We Know It! She is such a talented, beautiful and amazing actress. - RebeccaN123
She is my best comedian actress ever.. I loved her in the killers.. 27 dresses.. The ugly truth and all her movies
Are you kidding me right now. katherine heigl is in 77. you gotta be kidding. she is the best all I can say is that she is the best in her rules in live as we know it, the ugly truth, new years eve, knocked up, 27 dresses or you didn't see it at all
Probably not best actress but the best looking actress and the cutest and the funniest
She has that amazing smile and eyes I've ever seen and her part in 500 days of summer she makes you unhelpfully in love with her
When I saw this movie every time I think of her my heart starts pounding
Actually she wrote in her biography that she was hooked on amphetamines and that she couldn't act without them ( amphetamines were the diet pills of the 60's, 70's and 80's ). So it's not that she's acting " like " but because she's on it. Explains her Always fast talking in her European movies.
Maybe not the best actress in the world ( and yes, she had an addiction for amphetamine dietpills in the sixties ) but movies like " Barbarella ", " Klute ", " They shoot horses, don't they? ", " Cat Ballou ", " Coming home ", " The China syndrome ", " On golden pound "... etc are all timeless classics. Meaning that this actress have contributed a lot in the history of the 7th art.
One of the biggest traitors of all time
A. Award. Winner. Best. ActressV3 Comments
Can't believe she's not higher in the list Lucy is a brilliant actress and has got one hell of a caerer ahead of her, all you have to do a watch her in pretty little liars to see that. In a few years she will be a mega star.
I LOVE HER! I hope once she leaves Abc Family when PLL (best show ever) is over that she'll pull a Shailene Woodley and become a mega star!
