There are many talented and beautiful actresses across Europe. Some even make it to Hollywood and become international household names. However there are some who also deserve attention with their charity efforts and their educational backgrounds. Those women aren’t just actors, they are a lot more than that. Here is my TOP 5 EXTRAORDINARY EUROPEAN ACTRESSES!
BEATRIZ BARDA – Portugal: This lady was named one of European films ‘Shooting Stars’ by European Film Promotion in 1998. She studied Design at IADE Institute in Lisbon and trained in acting at Guidhall School of Music and Drama in London. She is not only an actor but she is also an artist with a degree. She is not your typical actor. Unline most actors, she actually has an education.
SEDA EGRIDERE – Turkey: Most versatile actress on the list. This beautiful Turkish lady holds double majors degrees in English and Psychology from the best university of her country, has publications in neurology under her belt, has her own social media marketing business (one of the first in her country) and has her own charity. She seems to be the perfect definition of beauty with brains + a good heart.
LEONOR WATLING- Spain: Watling was born in Madrid, Spain to a Spanish father and a British mother, and has three siblings: two brothers and one sister. She speaks Spanish with her brothers and English with her sister. She was bilingual from the start. This beauty doesn’t only act but she is also a very talented singer with the voice of an angel.
CARICE VON HOUTEN – The Netherlands: Carice has stated that Hollywood makes her unhappy: “I have seen Hollywood, and although I have nothing against it, it’s not my kind of life. My agent is shocked that I want to stay in Europe”, she says. “If Hollywood offers me a great part, of course I’ll take it, but I just don’t want to live there”. Do we need to say more? An actress able to realize that being famous in Hollywood won’t bring her happiness.
MARIBEL VERDU- Spain: Maribel has been acting for a long time but it’s not her acting and her determination deserves recognition. This beautiful lady knew she wanted to act at the age of 15 and she quit school and went to become one of the best actors in Spain. She has courage for sure. But it’s her involvement in various charities that puts her among the TOP 5 Extraordinary Actress in Europe.
