The courageous Letty, managed to save Dominic from a car wreck and has been his constant pillar of support right from the very first film to its upcoming installment that’s going to be the 9th in the popular franchise.
Emma Watson AKA Hermione Granger Harry Potter series
Hermione is a girl who always strives to be the best and aims to excel. This is a great trait which has inspired many young girls over the years. She is an ambitious, brave and intelligent girl in many ways with a vision in life. Hermione does have many traits of Ravenclaw house, she was likely sorted into Gryffindor because some of her best attributes are connected with the house. She always stood by her friends, even though unsure about the best ways to contribute. But she’s taught each one of us that not all battles are won with might, some need the right amount of brains and intelligence to be victory. And that’s exactly why we need and love Hermione Granger.
Tessa Thompson AKA Valkyrie Thor Ragnarok
The kickass Valkyrie makes absolutely no apologies & regrets for her choices in life. She draws solid boundaries and is well aware of her goals. She’s flawed, but that’s what makes her special and unique. The powerful character is played by the very confident Tessa Thompson.
Letitia Wright AKA Shuri Black Panther
Letitia believed in her own identity and didn’t sit in the shadow of her sibling simply because he’s king. She has the brains and the sass to carve her own path, making her own way to the Kingdom of Wakanda. Full of tricks and surprises and a witty sense of humour, Suri’s character is nothing less than a mainstream super hero.
Felicia Day AKA Virginia ‘Red’ Sullivan Red: Werewolf Hunter
Never did we ever imagine that this thrilling take on Little Red Riding Hood would spook us and make us shiver in our seats. Watching Red, a descendant of the girl from the folk story, and the series of events that unfold after she brings her fianc home to meet her family of werewolf hunters was certainly what we weren’t expecting. What follows is her fight to protect him from her loved ones. Displaying a great sense of strength and leadership in every scene, the character, played by Felicia Day certainly packs a punch.
Milla Jovovich AKA Natalie Artemis Monster Hunter
Introduced to the franchise through her husband and director of the film, there certainly was no looking back for Milla Jovovich as she played the role of a US Army ranger. Being transported from the real world to one filled with dangerous monsters is sure to leave anyone in awe. And seeing the manner in which Natalie has acted, one can clearly tell that she has well and truly left her mark on this fantasy film. After all, she was able to get into the skin of her character by playing Monster Hunter. Now that’s what we call dedication.
