MARCIA CROSSIt's interesting how Marcia Cross managed to become one of the most popular television actresses thanks to one legendary role in DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES. Her marvelous, refined and deeply intelligent portrayal of Bri Van De Kamp in the popular show has created one of television's biggest female characters in history. And she really did cover all in that job - the look, the stand, the tiniest of emotions, the style, the voice and even the charisma. And the best thing is that she made the audience fall in love with her character in the show, who, even though sometimes naughty and even sinful, always believes in justice and will fight for it without choosing the methods. Marcia, who turns 50 next year, believe it or not, will have to chose whether to continue a TV or a film career after DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES end this season. I hope she finds some great drama and scores an Oscar, because she really did prove her amazing acting skills on TV already, the skills which brought her 3 Golden Globe and 1 Emmy nominations for best TV actress.
When it comes to tidbits about her - she has a master degree in psychology, which could be the reason why she often plays doctors on TV. Thanks to her refined style she is often named the queen of red carpets. I hope that I don't have to remind you that her name is not pronounced as "Marsha" but "Mar-see-ah"!
EMMA THOMPSONWell, I think you will agree that we all love British legend Emma Thompson, not only for her acting skills, but also for her witty and honest public remarks about everything. This 52 year old lady
In the future we shall hear her voice in marvelous animated movie BRAVE,
When it comes to tidbits about her - after divorcing Branagh, she married popular British actor Greg Wise, she definitely is age defying lady since she gave birth to her first kid at the age of 40. She was the first choice for the roles in BASIC INSTINCTS and ANNA AND THE KING, she is the only person in history to win an Oscar both for acting (HOWARD'S END) and for writing (SENSE AND SENSIBILITY).
