Acting : Who's your favorite actress? by Maurice Vaughan

Who's your favorite actress?

Who's your favorite actress? What's your favorite movie that she's in?

My favorite actress is Dakota Fanning. My favorite movie that she's in is "Please Stand By."

Amy Volker

Still working? Julianne Moore. Couldn't pick just one film, but probably Still, Alice. That movie floors me. Deceased would be Bette Davis, All About Eve.

Maurice Vaughan

I liked Julianne Moore in a few movies, including "Evolution."

Jose Eduardo Penedo

Cate Blanchett does it for me. Favorite role is probably the cameo she did in Hot Fuzz, always cracks me up: "I'm not Janine".

If we're talking all time then I think Lilian Gish takes the cake. Her performance in The Wind is incredible.

Maurice Vaughan

Nice choices, Jose.

Neil Mukherjee

I can list a number of great actresses from yesteryears but am currently still waiting to be impressed...

Vanessa Bamba

Mine is Patricia Arquette - 'true Romance' its my all-time favorite film and my other favorite film is 'birdman' i love Emma Stone in it .

Maurice Vaughan

Emma Stone is one of my favorite actresses, Vanessa.

Debbie Croysdale

Sharon Stone in Basic Instinct written by Joe Eszterhas who I aim to meet later this year, Sylvia Simms in Ice Cold In Alex and Jodie Foster in Hannibal. Different genres/eras but all strong intellectual women. (In different ways). Whether antagonist is a psycho cannibal or malefactor the desert or a suspect is media’s elite where real antagonist hides in a shadow, the wit will out!

Maurice Vaughan

Jodie Foster is one of my favorite actresses, Debbie.

Maurice Vaughan

Those are talented actresses, Tim.

Kinney Scott

wow thats tuf one ...

Kinney Scott

reese witherspoon is great actress all her films

Maurice Vaughan

Reese Witherspoon is a talented actress, Kinney.

Kinney Scott

i love her acting she plays arole as if she lives it

Neil Mukherjee

All time favourites: Ingrid Bergman, Dame Diana Rigg, from the 1980s, Helen Slater, 1990s Catherine Zeta Jones and more recently Zendaya. I believe we need more committed actresses who stay in the industry for longer and are appreciated by casting that will allow actresses of all generations to be involved in contemporary scripts and storylines. The lack of relevant roles for mature actresses is of concern and the need for more proactive casting for actresses above 35 is very much so necessary.

Maurice Vaughan

Neil, I enjoyed the role Catherine Zeta Jones' played in "The Terminal." I didn't know Zendaya was a singer until after I saw her in "Spiderman." I thought she was just an actress. I try to include roles in my scripts for women who are over 35. I try to cover many age ranges actually.

Aray Brown

Danielle Mone' Truitt! Bet's Rebel, Chicago Med, Law And Order: Organized Crime

Viola Davis! Fences, How To Get Away With Murder, Ma Rainey's Black Bottom

Diane Wiest! I Care A Lot

Kerry Washington! Little Fires Everywhere, Scandal

Maurice Vaughan

I've seen all of those actresses except Danielle Moné, Aray. Viola Davis and Kerry Washington are two of my favorite actresses.

Aray Brown

Maurice Vaughan check her out on imdb

Maurice Vaughan

I checked out Danielle's roles, Aray. I didn't know she was on "Chicago Med" until you mentioned it. I've only seen a few episodes. I mainly watch "Chicago P.D."

Aray Brown

I’m definitely a fan! The first I seen her was when David E Talbout had a reality show, searching for the next star. And this was back in the MySpace days

Karen "Kay" Ross

I haven't seen "Please Stand By", but I'll be sure to check it out!

Must I choose just one? LOL!

I would definitely agree with Viola Davis and Kerry Washington, and would add Queen Latifah, Issa Rae, and Octavia Spencer. I grew up seeing Kathy Bates, Maggie Smith, Angelica Houston, Linda Hamilton, and Angela Bassett as my silver screen icons. Strength, charisma, and a look that wasn't traditional beauty but rather an undeniable presence. And I'm all about that on-screen presence!

Aray Brown

Oooh Angela Basset and Octavia Spencer get my vote too! I can’t narrow it to just one. I love Issa Rae but she’s not my favorite. The late great Ms Cecily Tyson. Jurnee Smolett of course. Kristen Wig

Maurice Vaughan

Those are talented actresses, Kay. Dakota Fanning did a fantastic job in "Please Stand By."
