Have you ever noticed that there are a lot of very talented women in web series? Particularly compared to the typically male dominated film and television industries. The boom and adoption of women in web series is a complex and interesting topic, one we’ll be visiting in depth at some point, when we feel our heads are sufficiently wrapped around this brilliant phenomena.

Kylie Sparks (Actress/Producer) @kyliesparks

WHY: However, beyond Squaresville, Sparks’ prolific work in the web series world – both acting in and producing original and high quality new series’ such as The Walking Tedd and L.A Girls is why we think Sparks’ is such an exciting character to follow.

NOTABLE WORK:  Squaresville, The Walking Tedd, L.A Girls

I'd very much like to add Jennifer Jordan to this list.


She plays Anna in the splatter horror comedy "I Am Tim" and Millie in "Nights at the Round Table." You'll struggle to find an actress so versatile and talented out there.


You need to check out Karolina Sivas, she's the creator, writer, star, executive producer and brains behind the romance web series "Broken At Love." www.brokenatlovetheseries.com


Thank you guys SO much for including me in this!  I'm truly honored!  Leesa


Apologies for gate crashing a bit, but I'd love to see the cast of our series get some more recognition. The shows are the most viewed, but as you guys kindly highlighted in your review it's a great show and deserves more exposure.
