46. Gugu Mbatha-Raw

Gugu Mbatha-Raw singlehandedly won over the hearts of LGBT TV watchers by her portrayal as Kelly in only one of Black Mirror’s episodes. That’s right, she was only in one episode and is being heavily praised for it. The episode “San Junipero” shined a light on a world where someone’s sexuality is non-news. She, along with costar Mackenzie Davis, played a young queer couple in the 80s that stole the hearts of fans across the globe. Talk about stealing the show. The two are happily living in their virtual reality world and will stay in San Junipero forever and now I’m crying.

45. Eliza Bennett

Eliza Bennett is starring as Jules in MTV’s new show Sweet/Vicious. It’s bringing humor and humanity to an issue rarely addressed in the media- campus sexual assault. While most shows just have a scene where that happens, Sweet/Vicious is going against the norm and taking down the guys who are doing it. Only four episodes have been aired but I’m already falling madly in love with Eliza Bennett, as is everyone else who watches it. Her ability to portray emotions on the show is insane, and I need it to be Tuesday so I can watch more episodes.
