5. Claire Foy, “The Crown”
Netflix’s original series “The Crown” tells the dramatic tale of Queen Elizabeth II’s political and personal life from the 1940s to current times. Young Queen Elizabeth is played by Claire Foy (“Season of the Witch”), whose portrayal is poised, glamorous and revered. Acting as one of the most famous and classy women in history is no easy feat, but Foy managed to walk away with a Golden Globe for it.
