- Priyanka Chopra retained her #8 rank this year
- Sofia Vergara topped the list sixth time in a row
- Priyanka's new show may help boost her position next year
Priyanka became a household name in the West after starring in ABC's Quantico, which was renewed for the third season in May, despite low viewership and TRPs. Quantico's rating has gone down by 45 per cent from season 1 to season 2 and its viewership dropped by 36 per cent, according to a report in Variety magazine. It was also reported back then that Priyanka took a pay cut to ensure the show doesn't go off air as she need publicity for then soon-to-release Hollywood debut film Baywatch.
Priyanka has twice won People's Choice award for her portrayal of Alex Parrish in Quantico. After the success of Quantico, Priyanka is all set to produce an American show based on the life of Madhuri Dixit - this should help her take a higher rank next year.
