Morgan Saylor, 'Homeland'

You know her as: Dana Brody Why we like her: The 18-year-old actress holds her own against acting heavyweights Damian Lewis (also pictured here) and Claire Danes, and deserves to join her co-stars in the next round of awards nominations. Fans might not love her Season 2 storyline, but it's difficult to imagine another teenager -- besides Danes herself, circa "My So-Called Life" -- who can navigate the tightrope between angsty schoolgirl and the daughter of a terrorist. Where else you've seen her: The indie movies "Father of Invention" (2010) and "The Greening of Whitney Brown" (2011) -- Drusilla Moorhouse, Zap2it
