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.
