My Favourite Beautiful Redhead Actresses - With Pictures

Red is the color of fire, of passion and of heat.

And these lovely redhead ladies certainly live up to all those great attributes.

Although there are many other colors in Hollywood, red is a rarer shade. Please note that I can't guarantee that all the girls below are natural redheads.

Although these girls are from the newer generation they certainly give Lucille Ball a red run for her money!

Below you'll find some redheads who are both well known as well as some you may not be quite as familiar with.

If you love all hair colors check out my beautiful brunettes and beautiful blondes as well!

Isla Fisher

Isla Fisher may be best known for being the wife of infamous Borat, Sacha Baron Cohen.

She also has a daughter, Olive and a second child, believed to be a son.

She's played varied roles, including the clingy one night stand in Wedding Crashers.

She played the role of Mary Jane in Scooby Doo.

And of course she was the shopaholic in the movie of the same name.

She's also well known for her role in the Australian soap, Home & Away.

Interesting Facts: Isla's name is from the Scottish Island of Islay.

Isla has four brothers.

Isla published two teen novels at the age of eighteen.

Christina Hendricks

This lovely redhead was voted sexiest lady in the world by female readers.

She's starred in several TV series including Mad Men and Firefly.

She originally began her TV career in Beggars and Choosers.

Christina has a lovely hourglass figure which has been praised and modelled in many magazines.

She's soon to feature in the show Life as we Know It.

Amy Adams

This lovely Italian redhead is one to watch!

She's played parts in movies including Catch me if you Can (cheeky nurse), Cruel Intentions 2 & Drop Dead Gorgeous (Cheeky Schoolgirl!).

She's also starred in Enchanted, Charlie Wilson's War, Julie & Julia and Leap Year.

She didn't enjoy high school but regrets not going on to college.

She also pursued a short career as a ballerina.

This redhead is a singing, dancing, acting superstar!

Interesting facts: Amy's middle name is Lou.

Amy was raised as Mormon.

Alyson Hannigan

This redhead has been keeping true to her self on our screens for over a decade now.

My personal favorite, Alyson Hannigan originally came to attention as the nerdy and naïve Willow in Buffy.

By the time the show ended she'd developed into a street smart and very sexy witch.

She's also starred as the nympho bride from the American Pie movie series.

Interesting facts: Alyson married one of her former Buffy co-stars, Alexis Denisof.

Alyson is of Irish-Jewish descent.

Jayma Mays

This is one not so sweet and innocent red head to keep an eye on!

With her major introduction to TV audiences as the sweet and over-sensitive Emma Pillsbury in the hit show Glee, she's become a well known actress.

She's also been seen on Ugly Betty and Heroes.

There's no word of up coming movies but we're hoping this budding actress will one day grace the big screen!

Interesting facts: Jayma was raised in Grundy, Virginia.

I think red haired women are interesting. You've put together a nice group, and it's helpful that their photos accompany the writeup. Your collection of facts are interesting. This is a nice, reader friendly piece.

Hello, WryLilt,

This is an excellent piece of writing. Amazing, to be precise.

I loved every word of it. Voted up and all the choices because you deserve it. AmyAdams. Done. End of discussion.

You have such a gift for writing. Just keep writing and no telling at how far you will go and how many

people you will touch.

I have just left you some fan mail and become one of your followers.

I cordially invite you to read one or two of my hubs, and be one of my followers.

That would make my day.

I am so honored to meet you and follow you.

Fun article. I would've included Rose McGowan and Julianna Moore as gorgeous redheads. I had no idea Wesley married Willow. Lol, awesome.

Kenneth Claude from Ohio on June 02, 2013:

I am/was a huge fan of the show THE OFFICE (u.s. version). Amy Adams was actually in an epsiode on season 1 entitled Hot Girl. I've always liked her a lot !

Dil Vil from India on April 15, 2013:

Great hub. Alyson Hannigan, her acting is awesome in the flick American Pie... Good read, thanks for the hub.

schoolgirlforreal on November 11, 2010:

Out of all of them I think Alison Hannigan is the prettiest which is weird cause I usually don't pick her. Her locks are beautiful thou look dyed w/ the dark roots and eyebrows, nice though. For red haired actresses I think I'd say Nicole Kidman, Rose McGowan, but red hair is really pretty but not everyone looks good w/ it!

prasetio30 from malang-indonesia on November 11, 2010:

This hub so beautiful. I believe that they are beautiful actress. Thanks for share with us. I really enjoy to read their biography. Good to see you here.


Pamela Oglesby from Sunny Florida on November 10, 2010:

You really chose a talented beautiful group of red headed women. I didn't know many of those details before either. Rated up.

*sigh* I might spend the rest of the day looking at this Alyson Hannigan person. . . . . .
