10. Tessa Thompson (Valkyrie, Starting in Thor: Ragnarok)
Should Tessa Thompson be higher than No. 10 on our list? Maybe, but she’s also the youngest person on it, and we have a feeling she’ll soon rack up as many award nominations as the others, if not surpass their totals. Thompson very adroitly balances the fun of MCU blockbusters with the crowd-pleasing heart of the Creed franchise and the searching, complicated truth of films like Passing.
