Posted: 4 years, 3 months ago at May 18 20:52
What about Lena Olin (Alias, The Ninth Gate, Chocolat, Remember Me to mention a few)? She's from Stockholm, Sweden.
Posted: 4 years, 3 months ago at May 18 21:47
no love for Portugal? this list is bunk. 1/3 of the list is from australia or england.
Posted: 4 years, 3 months ago at May 18 21:47

Posted: 3 years, 4 months ago at Apr 7 16:44
i love the title of this list
Posted: 2 years, 11 months ago at Sep 8 15:23
You should include Sweden's Noomi Rapace too (from The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo).

Anyway, if Lena Olin can make it, why not Juliette Binoche?
Posted: 2 years, 11 months ago at Sep 9 4:11
There are just too many French ladies already on here. Even too many Swedish ones. I'm looking for ones now from countries where stars are less liekly to make it to Hollywood...but do!
Posted: 1 year, 3 months ago at Apr 30 19:14
Great list! I know you already have Bahar Soomekh from Iran, but here's another Iranian actress for you to consider adding to the list: Shohreh Aghdashloo
