Scream queens get no respect. You could ask Heather Langenkamp and watch her documentary I AM NANCY to figure that out. Or you could go see FINAL DESTINATION 5 and make note of how that horror franchise keeps collecting new faces. Because they need to kill them off, but still. No respect, I'm telling you.
Bell seems like just another blonde actress. Or just another actress with the last name bell, since there seem to be plenty of those nowadays. But is she really? Struggling through the landscape of today's cinema and television scenes, Emma has done horror, drama and whatever "Law & Order" falls under these days. It sorta keeps with the rule of thumb that a great character actor is one you can't recognize by name.
She's cleanly and plainly pretty, like the girl next door (wherever all those doors all, seemingly manufactured in one spot on the planet). There's no real sexpot vibe to her even though she has a decent body. You could venture to suggest that she's about as exciting as a slice of Wonder Bread.
But I'd ask if you'd watched "The Walking Dead." Bell shined in her time on that show (watch it, I'm biting my tongue on the details). She isn't afraid to get ugly which allows her that cleaning up period of beauty. I have to say that I like her a lot purely based on her involvement on that show. As to whether I can call her hot or not, I'm Johnny 5 on the matter for now.
What are your thoughts on Emma Bell?
