Shoshannah Stern, 'Jericho'
You know her as: Resourceful apocalypse-survivor Bonnie
Why we like her: It's not just that she would top our list of our favorite beautiful, deaf, Jewish actresses, nor that she survived the debacle that was "Threat Matrix." No, Stern has a mixture of sass and vulnerability that she can use for comedy or drama without saying a word.
Where else you've seen her: She was sexy and funny on "Weeds" and guested on episodes of "The Division," "E.R.," "Boston Public" and "Providence."
