I love TV, if you couldn’t tell already 🙂  I have been watching TV for a very long time and I wanted to share my two cents on who I think are the very best of the best.  Without these individuals and their contributions, TV would be an  empty and boring place.  Many of these are supporting actors whose work can go unrecognized, but the reality is that without them the shows they work for would likely fail.  I hope that they are properly recognized by the people and organizations for whom they work.  I am not a follower of awards shows, but here are my humble opinions:

1.  Vanessa Ray who plays Officer Edit Jenko on “Blue Bloods” on CBS.  I just love this girl.  She is so real, so authentic.  She can be cute, she can be angry, she has such a range of abilities, and they are all believable.  I never once think “this is an actress.”  There are so many shows today where emotion seems to have been removed from the acting.  Humans are emotional beings (the healthy, normal ones), so seeing her bring this range of real emotional expression to the screen is a joy.

2.  Guillermo Diaz who plays Huck on the hit drama “Scandal” on ABC.  He is extremely talented.  I think his work could be overlooked because of the role that he plays, but the episodes which have featured him have been some of the best TV or movie work that I have ever seen.  Captivating.  Real.  Intense.  Scary.

3.  Eden Sher, who plays Sue Sue Heck on “The Middle” on ABC is amazing and holds the show together.  While all of the actors on this show are excellent, she is the best in my opinion (Patricia Heaton is a close second).  She consistently brings the energy and weirdness her character demands, while also showing her softer side at times.

4.  Emily Bett Rickards who plays Felicity Smoak on “Arrow” on WB.  This girl just made being nerdy cool!  She’s so believable and has brought this character to a place where she is a positive role model for all females.

There you have it TV fans!  My top picks for TV actors in my currently watched shows.  Who are your favorites?  Please share in the comments section, I’d love to know!
