Lena Headey

No one forgot her work in the 300 series, and her take in Game of Thrones lifted her career. Sure she is no leading lady but she has become a force to be reckoned with on the big screen. She found success in later years, but she is sure putting a hell of show with her stint in GOT. The audiences wish if she had the same luck in big budget movies.

A veteran actress who has been in the industry for more than 20 years, well she never got out of the acting scene but her piece sure shrunk a bit.

She is widely known for her work in Little Miss Sunshine, The Sixth Sense, and The Shaft. She is one of the most underrated actresses of today.

Vera Farmiga

Her recent big stint was The Conjuring 2, but she is way too talented to have only one flick a year. She was loved in her role as the LI Psychiatrist in The Departed. Other than that, she is praised for her work in The Boy in the Stripped Pyjamas, and Source Code. She also has her fair share of television with Bates Motel. For her talents and work history, the current audience is sure missing with not having her in the big screen.
