Stacy Martin

Martin gave her best orgasm face in Lars von Trier’s gritty sex epic Nymphomaniac and continues to dive headfirst into left-of-centre, unglamorous roles. Next, she’ll star in High-Rise, an adaptation of JG Ballard’s darkest nightmare. She also played a convincing factory girl in Steven Meisel’s Warhol-referencing AW14 Miu Miu campaign. Her gutsy balancing act of high fashion with high-risk picks makes her one of the leading actresses of our generation.
