Where You've Seen Her: Until 2009, this blonde bombshell's acting career consisted primarily of small cameos on shows like Veronica Mars and How I Met Your Mother. She then snagged a major role as Lydia on NBC's Heroes, opposite Hayden Panettiere. Since then, she's lent her voice to The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes and had a recurring role on The Vampire Diaries. And now, you can catch her every Sunday night playing Monica Talbot on Showtime's House of Lies. Between Dawn and fellow Maxim alum, co-star Kristen Bell, there are plenty of reasons to tune in - and that's no lie.

Get to know another girl, Emmy Rossum, and don't forget to place your vote in Maxim's 2014 Hot 100!
