Over the past few years, we’ve been slowly making our way to increased TV and movie representation. Gabby Sidibe, Leslie Jones, Chrissy Metz, and Amber Riley have been trailblazers for plus size actresses and both representation and talent for YEARS, and we know it hasn’t been easy!
But who are the newest plus size actresses making sure plus representation continues?
In 2021, we’re excited to see and support more plus size babes get screen time. Not only as a side-kick, the sassy, funny one, or the sad self-loathing trope… The heroine, the lead, the confident one.
As we know, sometimes Hollywood doesn’t always get it right. But, based on what we’ve seen, the future sure is promising!
Below are a few of our favorites to watch and support this year. So please give them a follow and check out their work!
