With the Fall Season on television getting into full swing and the new crop of fall movies getting ready to hit the theater, who are some of the hottest names we should be looking for? Is there a Meryl Streep or Katheryn Hepburn in the group?
Well some of the names and faces may be familiar, others not so much. So let’s take a closer look at some of the names that will keep September, October and November warm.
We will start this list with a name that should be at least familiar to most people who haven’t lived under a rock for the past 20 years, Zoe Kravitz. The daughter of rocker Lenny Kravitz and actress Lisa Bonet, has inherited both talent and looks from both sides of the family, making her as equally beautiful as she is talented.
Her big breakout role was in Mad Max: Fury Road, but that will be just the start of things for this beauty. With 4 more films slated to come out before the end of the year, Kravitz will be as much a household name as her mother and father. The big role to watch for is that of the title character Roxxy in the movie Vincent and Roxxy, where she will star opposite Emile Hirsch.
Next up is Nina Dobrev the 25-year-old Bulgarian/Canadian beauty that you probably know from the television show, The Vampire Diaries. If you haven’t seen it, or her, do not worry you will be seeing a lot more of this gorgeous gal.
She is only slated to be in one film coming out this year, the horror/comedy called The Final Girls. But do not worry; you will see a lot more of her as 2016 rolls around as she is slated to appear in a bevy of feature films.
Emilia Clarke is the next beauty to look out for. If you’re a fan of Game of Thrones you will of course recognize her as Daenerys Targaryen, a role she has already been nominated for an Emmy for. But she is really about to hit it big, when she stars in Terminator Genisys as, who else, Sarah Connor.
If any movie franchise can vault you into the public eye, this may be the one.
For being just 21 years old, India Eisley has already gotten herself quite the resume. Known for her role in the 2008 film The Secret Life of an American Teenager, she has already made her acting chops, but it is a few films that will be coming out in 2015 that has us excited.
Starting with the hot button topic, “Social Suicide” which explores the lengths teens will go to in order to get noticed on the internet. Next is the really make or break role for India, as she plays the title character in the upcoming The Curse of Sleeping Beauty.
Our final entry on this list is probably the least-known of the actresses we’ve discussed so far, but I can almost guarantee the movies she does in 2015 will out earn almost every other movie listed here combined.
Daisy Ridley may not be a household name yet, considering the only places you have been able to see her is in small roles on British television shows like Casualty, Silent Witness and Mr. Selfridges. But she will become instantly recognizable on December 19th.
That would be the day after Star Wars Episode VII; The Force Awakens opens where the talented Ms. Ridley has a starring role as Rey, one of the main characters in this continuation of the franchise. She will also be starring in the thriller Scrawl, about a boy who writes a comic book and the situations he writes about seem to be coming true.
There you have it, five actresses whom you may or may not know now, but come January all five of them should be household names. Maybe it isn’t such a bad time to be a woman in Hollywood.
