14 of 14Amanda Clarke/Emily Thorne (Emily VanCamp), Revenge
She may not walk or talk like a typical butt-kicking TV heroine, but don't let this Southamptonite's sweet looks fool you: She's as ruthless as they come. After her father went to jail, Emily spent years roughing it up in juvie and learning martial arts before emerging intent on taking down the people who betrayed him. She changed her name, dyed her hair and seduced the son of the woman she hates the most in an effort to truly ruin her life. Because, you know, murder would be too quick and painless.
