As a follow up to the (ahem) hugely popular thread on actors, here’s the list of actresses. For clarity’s sake, listeners were asked to vote for their favourite 5 people in each category & the results were cobbled into a top 25. The presenters have conceded that a bigger list (say fave 20) would have probably have yielded better results. Like the actors list, pretty interesting – good to see most chosen for their actual craft rather than for their sex appeal – which I think may have been notably different in days gone by.
