A year & a bit ago I had never heard of Stana Katic. I had barely heard of "Castle", the show she co-stars on. But, after 2 years of seeing write in votes & nominations for the her in a variety of cateogires, my eyes are open to the show and its main stars now. I started watching the homicide centred drama this year & like many of you that voted, loved it too. Katic's performance as Det. Kate Beckett is certainly worthy of this praise.
Stana won handily, but earily on, she had resistence from a couple competitors, mainly from the eventual distant runnerup "Once Upon A Time" star Jennifer Morrison. Immediately behind her in 3rd was early on leader "Game Of Thrones" star Lena Headey. 4th & 5th were a pair of "Criminal Minds" actresses A.J. Cook & Paget Brewster. 6th was another "Once Upon A Time" actress Ginnifer Goodwin, back in 7th was the young "Game Of Thrones" star Maisie Williams, just narrowly beating out 8th place "Once Upon A Time" actress Lana Parrilla. 9th was "Burn Notice" actress Sharon Gless, and rounding out the finalists was "Revenge" star Emily VanCamp.
All three from the top 3 had at one point held the lead.
