W Magazine – As movies increasingly play to a global audience with an endless stream of superhero blockbusters, the television landscape is becoming more varied—and more compelling. So, this year we turned our attention to dramas and the 13 actors and actresses who have given performances that are deeper and more thrilling than any you might find at the cinema. From Nicole Kidman and Alexander Skarsgård, who played a couple caught in an impassioned and physically abusive relationship in HBO’s Big Little Lies, to Millie Bobby Brown as the otherworldly Eleven on Stranger Things and Milo Ventimiglia as Jack Pearson, the flawed but compassionate father at the heart of NBC’s breakthrough hit This Is Us, here is a closer look at the hottest TV stars of the year.
6/13 – CLAIRE FOY, THE CROWN
“I went to work on The Crown four months after giving birth. The queen didn’t wear a corset, but I did in the beginning. Now, in the second season, I have to wear a significantly padded brassiere. In the first season, it was all my own breast work, but now it’s ‘Ha! Where have they gone?’ The queen would be so ashamed of me.”
