The 2021 Emmy’s are being held on September 19th and many redhead nominees are gracing the screen this year. Emmy nominated shows like The Boys, The Crown, and Bridgerton are studded with stars who are naturally red and red ‘by choice’. 

We’ve also seen a number of stars rocking red for their role, and some of them are getting recognized big time. Here are three Emmy nominated actresses who went red for their role: 

1. Anya Taylor-Joy, The Queen’s Gambit – ​​Nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie

Anya Taylor-Joy is naturally brunette but often sports a chic blonde look. For her breakthrough role as Beth Harmon in The Queen’s Gambit, Anya rocks a bobbed red wig. We think red suits her quite nicely. 

2. Elizabeth Olsen, WandaVisionNominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie

Similar to her older sisters Mary-Kate and Ashley, Elizabeth Olsen has had many hair colors over the years. From brown to blonde and every shade in between. For her role in WandaVision, the starlet dyed her locks red to embody the Scarlet Witch. 

3. Madeline Brewer, The Handmaid’s TaleNominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series

Madeline Brewer’s fiery red hair matches her feisty personality on Hulu’s hit drama The Handmaid’s Tale. Normally a buttery blonde, Madeline embraced her red locks for her role as Janine. 

Rock it like a Redhead!
