    As you can see, Rigby is a pretty big fan of makeup—and she should be, considering she's appeared in several TV shows.

    In addition to Hollyoaks and Prisoners' Wives, she has appeared in something called Pramface, along with Fresh Meat, Demons Never Die and Becoming Human.

    Sounds riveting.

    Hannah struggled with anorexia and bulimia on the show. For her portrayal, Rigby won Best Actress in the 2008 British Soap Awards.

    As an American, I don't really know what that means. It sounds impressive, though.
