After appearing in My Name Is Earl as Chunk, and American Horror Story: Freak Show as Barbara/Ima Wiggles, Chrissy is now in the spotlight for role as Kate in This Is Us.  But that’s not the only reason she’s on this list.  In an interview with Glamour Magazine, she shared that she only had 81 cents in her account when she received the role as Kate, but instead of giving up, she kept trying.  “I kept auditioning, with no savings and no money, credit card debt gaining interest. I went on unemployment. I bought ramen noodles at dollar stores,” shared Metz.

From performing all over the country and inspiring us to be great through music and social media, we can’t wait to see what this diva has in store for us in 2017.
