No. 5: Freema Agyeman
If you don’t know Freema Agyeman, you’re missing out. This beautiful Brit is the star of “Law & Order: UK,” airing on BBC America. Even with the show’s slight language barrier (expect accents and uniquely British jargon), it’s obvious that Freema is a force to be reckoned with.
Before her role in the British spin-off of popular NBC show "Law & Order," she played Martha Jones on “Doctor Who,” proving she’s an actress with range. She also received a Most Popular Actress nomination from the UK National Television Awards for her portrayal.
Will her new role garner her a win in 2011? Either way, it promises to be a pretty great year for Freema.
