The list includes a range of characters from reality to cable to network TV. And appearing at #11 no less, is none other than former background player-turned-major arc star, Glee’s Santana Lopez (played by Naya Rivera)!
MTV praises “sassy, slam-ready Santana’s struggle” (say that three times fast) in acknowledging her sexuality this season, while simultaneously accepting support from friends and confronting the fallout with her family. It’s been a tear-jerker, no doubt, and their claim that it has elevated Santana from one-liners to multi-layered is spot-on.
With the upcoming guest-star chit-chat focusing on the Lopez family, we’re happy to know that this isn’t the end of Naya’s moment in the spotlight.
