Fans saw her stunning action sequences alongside James Bond in Quantum of Solace in 2008. She is a famous French model and actress and does a fabulous job in an action role.

She received many awards for her performances so far, and that led her to more such roles. If she brings her intense, intimidating look from Good Girls, everyone would think twice before messing with the Queen of Atlantis.


5.Karen Gillan
