Where You've Seen Her: This Maxim alum has the brains and beauty to back herself up. Moving to the UK early on in her childhood, the brunette graduated from the University of Winchester where she studied drama and English literature. After touring the country with a theater company she co-founded while at school, Lauren landed her first major acting role on the TV series Supernatural. She went on to score various cameos and in 2010 she took on a recurring role on the teen hit The Vampire Diaries. But we know and love her best as Maggie Greene, a farmer's daughter trying to survive in a post-apocalyptic zombie-filled world on The Walking Dead. Check her out kicking the undead's ass every Sunday night on AMC.
