Another actress with a mesmerizing presence is Maggie Smith. She has an immensely long acting career that started back in 1956 and has won several awards, including two Oscars. She was even given the title of Dame by the very Queen Elizabeth II in 1990 for her services to the Arts and a Companion of Honor award for contributions to Drama in 2014.
In the Harry Potter series, she portrayed Professor McGonagall, who is the head of Gryffindor. Given that Hogwarts was a school for witches, Smith was always suited up in witch attire, like the hat you can see here. We’re sure she has a lot of powers in real life, but not really of the magical kind.
Marie Antoinette (Kirsten Dunst)
"Marie Antoinette" is a historical drama film showcasing the ridiculously lavish life of the Queen of France in the 18th century, which is underlined by the enchanting costume design. Kirsten Dunst portrays Marie, whose opulence and grandeur are represented by silk, frills, and flowery and pastel-colored attire. It is most likely the costumes that took the lead in the film.
Thanks to the costumes, it became the visual and cinematic sensation that it was and gave everyone a peek into the 18th-century world of Versailles. A good costume designer should tell a story through dress, and that's precisely what happened here. The costume designer Milena Canonero even won an Academy Award for 'Best Achievement in Costume Design' for the film.
Elinor St. John (Jean Smart)
"Babylon" is a 2022 period comedy-drama movie featuring a star-studded cast that includes Margot Robbie, Brad Pitt, Jean Smart, and many other big names from Hollywood. The film may not be based on real events, but the creator certainly leaned on historical figures when crafting this film.
Many of the characters in this three-hour-long movie are loosely based on famous figures of Hollywood’s Golden Age, and that includes Jean Smart's character Elinor St. John. Elinor is a witty gossip columnist based on Elinor Glyn, who left England for Hollywood in the roaring 20s to pursue a career in screenwriting. Glyn was known for her scandalous romance stories and columns in initial issues of the magazines like Cosmopolitan and Photoplay.
Titania (Jameela Jamil)
Jameela Jamil is a British actress mostly known for her role as Tahani in "The Good Place," and it was this role that catapulted her into other big roles, such as her character Titania in "She-Hulk." Titania isn't your typical Marvel villain. Much like She-Hulk, Titania has superhuman abilities, and both of these characters are obsessed with staying on top in the public eye.
Jameel claimed that it was tough to put on the tight body suit for this character and even posted a video on Twitter that showed her trying to squeeze into the suit on set. In real life, Jameel has black hair and brown eyes, unlike Titania, who has red hair and green eyes.
Martha Walker (Harriet Walter)
Another actress with an extensive acting career is Harriet Walter. She has not only acted in dozens of films and series but has done a lot of work in theatrical productions, too, to the point where she became a partner of the Royal Shakespeare Company in 1987.
She also has received five Emmy Awards and was assigned Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire for her contributions to Drama. She has starred in hotshot series like "Succession," "The Crown," and "Downton Abbey," just to name a few. In the Apple TV+ series "Silo," she portrayed Martha Walker, who looks quite different from the star in real life with her long braids.
