ALICIA VIKANDER The Louis Vuitton ambassador and Swede was one of 2015’s busiest and biggest breakthrough stars, kicking off the year with sci-fi flick Ex Machina, followed by The Man from U.N.C.L.E and The Danish Girl, alongside Eddie Redmayne, and finished the busy year in Burnt, starring Bradley Cooper. SIENNA MILLER After taking time out to go on a maternity leave of sorts, the British actor arrived back in Hollywood with a bang, starting with an appearance in Foxcatcher, quickly followed by the role of Taya in Clint Eastwood’s Oscarwinning American Sniper. Miller also played the part of Helene in Burnt. GILLIAN ANDERSON The actor experienced a full-blown career comeback after playing serial-killerhunting detective superintendent Stella Gibson in The Fall, and this year, Anderson makes her return as special agent Dana Scully in a new season of the ’90s TV classic The X- Files (sci-fi nerds, rejoice). The comedian launched her series Inside Amy Schumer in 2013, but her profile really exploded when some sketches went viral—“Last F*ckable Day”, which poked fun at Hollywood sexism, and her pitchperfect parody of Friday Night Lights. Also in the spotlight: her role in— and first time screenwriting for— Trainwreck. The Fifty Shades of Grey film adaptation may not have been to everyone’s taste, but it put the actor firmly on the Hollywood map and she quickly followed it up with more critically acclaimed projects such as the Whitey Bulger biopic Black Mass, starring Johnny Depp and Joel Edgerton. The Oscar winner continues to be one of Hollywood’s most bankable stars. When the Sony hacking scandal revealed she was paid far less than her male co-stars in American Hustle, she demanded a raise for future projects, such as Passengers, for which she is earning more than co-star Chris Pratt.
