I like Jeon Mido. But I've watched only one serie, it's called Hospital Playlist. Jeon Mido is an korean actress and her smile is so beautiful♡ I like Selina Mour too, she was the main character of "Misfit". She's also a singer and I think her family is from the Philippines, but she lives in Germany. Her smile is also pretty♡ But I don't watch films with my favourite actors and actresses, I just choose what I like for example Fantasy movies.

I not only really like jennifer lawnrence but also the movies she plays. My most impressive films are Winter's Bone and X-men. She really did a great job and the film Winter's Bone also won an Oscar. A few commentators wrote that, "She is the soul of the movie, from her eyes to her acting like the original character and almost no one can as Ree- the main character in the movie ".
