Last week, we picked out ten actors who are On The Rise, a group of guys who all impressed us in recent roles and likely have put themselves on the radar of Hollywood, with names like Corey Stoll, Alex Karpovsky, Jack Reynor and Omar Sy coming to our attention.  So this week, it only seems natural to turn our focus to the actresses. There's been a pretty impressive crop of late, with stars like Jennifer Lawrence, Jessica Chastain and Felicity Jones breaking out, and the likes of Elisabeth Moss, Andrea Riseborough, Juno Temple, Rooney Mara, Emma Stone, Nicole Beharie and Brie Larson figuring on our previous lists. So who have we gone for this time around? Again, we tried to emphasize people whose skills and talent we can attest to, rather than picking out the names on every casting shortlist, but the latter's true for some of the actresses below too. »
