Highlight Hollywood’s Leading Ladies Gold Standard: Natalie Dorner, Kerry Washington And Jacqueline MacInnes-Wood, Dancing With Danger
This week’s Leading Ladies Gold Standard goes to three gorgeous actresses, who really shined on their shows last week. Two primetime divas and a Bold and Beautiful stunner were tops with Highlight Hollywood’s Editors this week. We had another tough week whittling down to three, from initially having 12, and four series to choose from. But, these ladies won our hearts, and this week they each had very different storylines, but it didn’t stop them from proving they are powerful actresses. British beauty Natalie Dorner, who portrays Margaery Tyrell, the soon-to-be suffering spouse of brute boy king Joffrey on HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” Kerry Washington, who portrays conniving mistress Olivia Pope on ABC’s “Scandal,” whose fling with the President of the United States is about to send her into a downfall, and sexy stunner Jacqueline MacInnes-Wood, who portrays Steffy Forrester on CBS’s soap “The Bold and the Beautiful.” As much as we love her being bad, she’s equally as addictive being good.
Natalie Dorner played doomed Queen Anne Boelyn on the Showtime hit series “The Tudors,” but now the beauty plays yet another conniving wannabe monarch, this time to an even more diabolical King than Henry the VIII of England. It’s Joffrey, the First of His Name, who sits on that ugly Iron Throne. Margaery is conniving, smart, sexy and smooth. This week we watched as she outwitted Regent Queen Cersei, who went straight to her father, to confirm that Margaery is, “a problem.” In fact, her entire clan seems to be. The Tyrells want power, and they already have money and land, so Margaery is plotting to become Joffrey’s Queen, and will stop at nothing to get there. Last season, she told Little Finger, “I don’t want to be a queen, I want to be The Queen.” She’s on her way to doing just that.
Washington is sizzling hot, and “Scandal” airs on Thursday nights on ABC.
