Top 5 Best Female Performances on TV Right Now

October 08, 2015

1- Viola Davis (How to Get Away With Murder)


Davis is one of the rare actresses who I can say that I loved them on both the big and the small screen. While I loved her in “The Help”, Davis’s performance on the ABC hit drama “How to Get Away with Murder” as “Annalise Keating” is what truly won me over. Adding another accomplishment to her list, Davis made history when she became the first African American woman to win a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series.  Season 2 is now airing every Thursday on Abc.

2- Megan Boone (The Blacklist)



Megan Bonne portraying “Elizabeth Keen” delivered a sturdy and a powerful performance on The Blacklist. Sadly it’s often overshadowed by James Spader , Boone does not get the praise she deserve. I am not familiar with Megan’s big screen roles, however her performance on “ Law & Order: Los Angeles” was quite impressive.  The Blacklist airs every Thursdays at 9/8c on NBC.

Favorite Quote: “You, You're talking about you. Wow, you are so damaged. You can't accept help from anyone. Has anyone ever helped you? Is that why you are the way you are, because you don't fee deserving of it. Is that why you can't be vulnerable for a second? I risked my life for you because I care about you. Deal with that. And when someone does something nice, you're supposed to say thank you.”

3- Lana Parrilla (Once Upon a Time)



Who knew one day that The Evil Queen would be the most loved character on TV?  Hilarious and dramatic when needed Lana’s “Regina Mills” performance overshadowed the countless characters introduced in the show. The journey from the villain to a hero and a savior, the road to finding her happy ending, the evil that was not born, but made, all come together to form an epic performance from Lana Parrilla. Once Upon a Time Season Five new episode is airing on 10/11 on ABC.

4- Katie Cassidy (Arrow)


Cast as Oliver Queen love interest “Laurel Lance” Cassidy’s character ended up being much more. When most love interest end up being uninteresting and not liked by the fans writers usually kill the character or cast them away. Cassidy gave one her best performances I’ve ever seen, her battling addiction and becoming a superhero when everyone was against her  managed to transform a somehow pointless annoying character to an important key element in the show. If Arrow writers decided to make a spin-off for Laurel Lance (Black Canary) I won’t even hesitate to watch it.

Favorite Quote: “I know that it probably sounds insane. It probably is, but Sara, she gave me this and when I wear it, it makes me want to help people like she did. Like she's alive again.”

5- Emily Bett Rickards (Arrow)


What’s even more remarkable than the show Emily starring in, is her convincing performance as “Felicty Smoak”. In only few episodes she managed to capture the heart of Arrow viewers, and demand her return. With more character development and background Emily took her character from an entertaining accessory to a must watch on every episode. Arrow returned with its fourth season on The CW.

Favorite Quote: “"I just hacked a federal agency. Kind of makes me a cyber-terrorist, which is bad because I really don't see myself fitting in well at Guantanamo Bay."
