The Results Are In! It’s the 2015 AfterEllen Hot 100

4. Lana Parrilla

As the Evil Queen on Once Upon a Time, Lana makes bad look so good. The Puerto Rican and Sicilian actress has been nominated for several awards for her role in the ABC series, and has won both the American Latino Media Arts Award for Outstanding TV Actress and the National Hispanic Media Coalition Impact Award. We look forward to the many more accolades to come, and will continue to do our fair share of giving them, too.

3. Shay Mitchell<> on June 14, 2015 in Malibu, California.

Shay has been making our hearts skip a beat on Pretty Little Liars for six years as Emily Fields, Rosewood’s resident lesbian sweetheart. Not only will Shay will be returning to our small screens in the winter for Season 6B of the ABC Family hit, but she will appear in the upcoming, star studded rom-com Mother’s Day. If that wasn’t cool enough, her debut novel Bliss hits stores and e-readers on October 6th.

2. Alycia Debnam-Carey

While the dystopian future drama The 100 has been building up steam since its debut last year, the show got a huge thumbs up from queer fans when Alycia joined the cast as the mysterious and alluring Commander Lexa in Season 2. Lexa’s chemistry with Clarke was off the charts, and we are thrilled that Alycia will appear in Season 3. She also happens to star in Fear the Walking Dead, which recently had the biggest cable series debut ever.
