The Most Underrated Actresses in Hollywood

Emmy Rossum

Over the years, Emmy Rossum has put together quite the career for herself. From 2003-2004, the Brooklyn native splashed onto the scene in a big way. At the age of 17, Rossum made her major studio film debut in Clint Eastwood’s Mystic River. In 2004, Rossum enjoyed her breakthrough with back-to-back stellar performances — first in The Day After Tomorrow, and then in The Phantom of the Opera — for which she earned a Golden Globe nomination.

However, despite her success at a young age, Rossum’s career appeared to hit a bit of a lull over the next few years. It wasn’t until 2011 that the talented New Yorker stole the spotlight once again. As Fiona Gallagher, Rossum became a television star on Showtime’s Shameless. Between 2011-19, Rossum appeared in 110 episodes of the hit show and endeared herself to millions of fans. With Shameless now in the rearview, hopefully Rossum makes a comeback on the big screen.
