I decided to start a new challenge, if anyone wants to join me, feel free! :) I am counting down from ten to one, my favourite actresses. These are all actresses who are still currently working. If I had included legendary actresses too, I may have had a much tougher time choosing!
In eighth place, is the unique Christina Ricci. Growing up as a pale skinned, dark haired and slightly kooky young girl, I could relate to Christina much more than the idealised tanned blonde high school teens I would see in a lot of movies. I loved her as Kate in Mermaids and as Wednesday in The Addams Family and later as Wendy in The Ice Storm, Dede in The Opposite of Sex and Layla in Buffalo 66. I admire her honesty about the difficulties she has faced in life and think she is underrated as an actress. She is still only in her thirties and I look forward to seeing her in many more roles in the coming years.
