Which of the five biggest starlets is your favourite?
Lily Aldridge Lily Aldrid has been in the limelight in recent months as she’s been in a number of high profile roles.
Her character in the film, Beautiful Mermaid, won her a BAFTA award and she’s also been a key performer in the new Star Wars film, The Force Awakens.
But she’s perhaps best known for her role as the glamorous Black Woman in the BBC’s Black Women in Love series, which explores the lives of the Black Women who love each other, as well as the role of the “brazen and daring” Black woman in British pop culture.
“I love Lily Aldridges portrayal as the Black Woman on Beautiful Mermaid.
I’m not the first Black woman to play a glamorous Black woman on television, I think that’s a bit of a legacy for Black women,” says author Mary Beard, who is an expert on the Black women in Britain.
“She’s a brilliant actress, and a superb character.
I hope that she does well, but I don’t think it will happen overnight.”
Julia Roberts The US actress, who has starred in films including The Hunger Games, The Hunger, and Big Little Lies, is another prominent actress to have been cast in the role.
In 2014, Roberts starred as the character of the sexy and wealthy woman in the UK version of The Hunger Game, and in 2017 she starred as a Black character in The Hunger Girls.
She’s one of the only Black women I know of who’s had the opportunity to play such a powerful role,” says Beard. “
In the new Black Lives Matter film, she plays a Black woman and that’s just so important.
She’s one of the only Black women I know of who’s had the opportunity to play such a powerful role,” says Beard.
“It’s so important for Black people to know that they’re not alone in this.”
The Black Lives Movement is not going away, and it’s not going to disappear.
We’re not going back to being second class citizens in any country, and we need to be more visible.
It’s just going to take a lot of hard work.
Jodie Foster Actress Jodies Foster has long been recognised for her portrayal of the glamorous, wealthy and stylish Black woman who lives in the house she shares with her daughter.
Foster is known for playing a rich, ambitious, and often manipulative Black woman character in several of her films.
She is not only a great Black woman actor, she is also a great actress. “
Jodie is a phenomenal actress.
She is not only a great Black woman actor, she is also a great actress.
I am so proud to be a part of this incredible, rich and beautiful Black woman,” said Foster, who will appear in the US remake of the film.
“There are no boundaries.
The Black Lives movement is about breaking down the barriers and we will never stop pushing for that.”
Rose Byrne Rose Byrne is another star who has been cast as a glamorous, powerful Black woman.
She starred as one of three Black women who made it to the UK edition of Black Panther in 2018, in which she played a powerful Black mother and the Black leader of a small tribe.
“Rose is brilliant in the Black Panther film.
She really plays these characters.
She knows the Black Panthers are not a group of white men and she has to find her own way to play them,” said actress Michelle Pfeiffer.
“What’s brilliant is she’s such a lovely, lovely person.
She plays a very strong, powerful woman and she just makes a beautiful Black person.”
Scarlett Johansson Scarlett Johanson has been the biggest star on the British stage since the early 1990s.
She has starred as an African woman in two films and appeared in a BBC series of the same name.
“Scarlett Johansson is a brilliant and powerful actress, she’s very funny and she does a fantastic job as the strong and powerful Black women on the TV show Black Mirror,” said Beard.
In 2017, Johanson starred as Michelle in The House of Cards and played the powerful Black leader in the second season of The Good Wife.
“Her casting in The Good Wives was just fantastic, and I love her character.
She will be fantastic in this role.”
Meryl Streep Meryl is known to be the first to play the glamorous but deadly Black woman seen in the movie, Black Widow.
“Meryl is a lovely character, and she brings a great, powerful character to the role,” said writer and producer Sam Taylor-Johnson.
“For Black people, she represents a lot and I think it’s a great role for Meryl.”
Emma Thompson The acclaimed actor has been a strong presence
