—F.K. Stanley, Socorro, N.M.
The actress, 54, has performed mostly regional theater in recent years, including a 2007 production of Hamlet with her father, Efrem Zimbalist Jr., 92. ”I haven’t worked in television for five years,” she says, adding that her detective character, Laura Holt, from the 1980s TV series Remington Steele, “inspired a lot of girls to do wonderful things in their lives. They come from all over the world to see me in the plays I do. Because of the Internet, they’re all connected. It’s very cool.”
