15A-Lister: Blake Lively
Blake Lively has kept busy these past few years. On Gossip Girl she played Serena, a flaky but charismatic young woman who, despite her best efforts, does not quite find her way in the end. In real life, Lively has done well for herself. The
actress has starred in a variety of multi-million dollar productions, and has several more blockbusters lined up.
In 2015 and 2016, she played the female lead in The Age of Adaline and The Shallows, respectively. Both were not exactly box-office hits, but were well received by critics. Her upcoming projects include the thriller A Simple Favor (due to be released in September 2018), and The Rhythm Section, which is currently on hiatus as Lively recovers from an on-set injury.
