401 Jennifer Carpenter Jennifer Carpenter Jennifer Leann Carpenter is an American actress best known for playing Debra Morgan on the Showtime drama series Dexter, for which she won a Saturn Award for Best Supporting Actress on Television in 2009. She has starred as Rebecca Harris in the CBS series Limitless since 2015.

Her intense performance makes me believe she is the best actress I've ever seen after watching many movies and T.V. series.

402 Mary Tyler Moore Mary Tyler Moore Mary Tyler Moore is an American actress, primarily known for her roles in television sitcoms, including The Mary Tyler Moore Show, in which she starred as Mary Richards, a thirty-something single woman who worked as a local news producer in Minneapolis, and, earlier, The Dick Van Dyke Show, in which ...read more.
403 Susan Hayward
404 Maisie Williams Maisie Williams

Maisie Williams is possibly the best actor I've seen. Even in mediocre/bad movies she always steals the scene.

406 Amy Acker

Truly feminine, the most charming, absolutely mesmerizing - stunningly beautiful and exquisite

This woman is lower than some singers on this list. She's 489. Unacceptable.

Amy Acker deserves an emmy for playing Root in CBS's Person of Interest, which recently just ended. I've never seen such an astounding performance, next to women like Melissa McBride from TWD and Evangeline Lilly from Lost, and Amy Acker's own former co-worker Sarah Shahi who all also deserve to be so much higher on the list than they actually are, but A.A. especially. - Abraxun

407 Lupita Nyong'o Lupita Nyong'o
408 Lesley Ann Warren

Loved her since she grabbed our hearts in Cinderella. She's such a phenomenon

409 Isla Fisher Isla Fisher Isla Lang Fisher is an Australian actress. Born to Scottish parents in Oman, she moved to Australia at age 6. She appeared on the children's adventure series Bay Cove and the short-lived soap opera Paradise Beach, before playing Shannon Reed on the soap opera Home and Away.

Great actress in comedies. Too underrated.

410 Thelma Ritter Thelma Ritter ...read more.

From her uncredited debut in 'Miracle on 34th Street' ('47) to her final role in 'What's so bad about feeling good? ' ('68, less than a year before she died), and in-between great films like 'All about Eve', 'Rear Window', 'Pillow Talk', 'The Misfits', 'Birdman of Alcatraz' and 'How the West was won', to name a few, she was an amazing actress, receiving 6 Oscar nominations as best supporting actress. Deserves more recognition.

411 Agnes Moorehead Agnes Moorehead Agnes Robertson Moorehead was an American actress whose career of six decades included work in radio, stage, film, and television.

Starting her movie-career in 'Citizen Kane', followed by 'The Magnificent Ambersons' (nominated for Oscar and won several awards), she was in hundreds of movies, theater and radio shows, but is probably (sadly) best known as Endora in T.V.-series 'Bewitched' ('64-'72). My favourite is her (again, Oscar-nominated) performance in 'Hush, Hush, Sweet Charlotte', alongside Bette Davis, Olivia de Havilland, Joseph Cotten, Mary Astor, Bruce Dern, etc.

412 Laura Prepon Laura Prepon Laura Prepon is an American actress, producer and author. She is known for her role as Donna Pinciotti in all eight seasons of the Fox sitcom That '70s Show, and for portraying Alex Vause in the Netflix series Orange Is the New Black.
413 Nasim Pedrad Nasim Pedrad Nasim Pedrad is an Iranian American actress and comedian best known for her five seasons as a cast member of Saturday Night Live and for co-starring in the short-lived Fox sitcom Mulaney.

Loved her in scream queens season 1 ( too bad her character died because I was hoping to see her in season 2. But who knows? The second season is not over yet ). A very talented actress.

She is really good compared to a lot of people her age.

415 Michelle Monaghan Michelle Monaghan Michelle Lynn Monaghan is an American actress known for her roles in Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, Mission: Impossible III, Gone Baby Gone, Made of Honor, Eagle Eye, Source Code, and True Detective.
416 Brigitte Bardot Brigitte Bardot Brigitte Anne-Marie Bardot is a French actress, singer and fashion model, who later became an animal rights activist.

Not the best actress, but the most beautiful, no doubt, beauty in its purest form. And that for ever.
BB we LOVE you.

417 Lauren Cohan Lauren Cohan Lauren Cohan is an American British actress and model, best known for her role as Maggie Rhee on The Walking Dead.
418 Thora Birch Thora Birch
419 Mena Suvari Mena Suvari Mena Alexandra Suvari is an American actress, fashion designer and model. Shortly after beginning her career as a model, Suvari appeared in guest roles on such 1990s television shows as Boy Meets World and High Incident.

" American beauty " is the movie that have give Mena Suvari a wider audience but it's certainly not the movie to say " enough said ". Her talent can really be seen in movies like for instance " Spun " where she's playing a meth-addict, " Standing still " where she's playing a girl who discovers she's a lesbian, " Edmond " where she's playing the high-class hooker, " Factory girl " where she's playing one of Andy Warhol's clique etc... An actress who's underrated for her diversity in roles.
