Bryce Dallas Howard as Rosalind-As You Like It.

No, no, Orlando, men are April when they woo, December when they wed. Maids are May when they are maids, but the sky changes when they are wives. I will be more jealous of thee than a Barbary cock- pigeon over his hen, more clamorous than a parrot against rain, more newfangled than an ape, more giddy in my desires than a monkey. I will weep for nothing, like Diana in the fountain, and I will do that when you are disposed to be merry. I will laugh like a hyena, and that when thou art inclined to sleep.

Happy hiatus!

13. Selma Jezkova

Dancer in the Dark (2000), Bjork

Lars von Trier may have tricked Bjork into portraying Selma - and the whole production was postpones until he inevitably convinced her to play the lead in his musical tragedy. Bjork is many things - but she’s definitely not an actress. Rather than act out the role, she became Selma. She became a mother, an immigrant, a factory worker, an optimist, and a tragic cinematic heroine.
