13. Selma Jezkova
Dancer in the Dark (2000), Bjork
Lars von Trier may have tricked Bjork into portraying Selma - and the whole production was postpones until he inevitably convinced her to play the lead in his musical tragedy. Bjork is many things - but she’s definitely not an actress. Rather than act out the role, she became Selma. She became a mother, an immigrant, a factory worker, an optimist, and a tragic cinematic heroine.
