Happy July, everybody! The sun is blazing, but the newest movies and shows streaming now are burning even hotter, giving way to top-notch content all summer long. Leading the way in these titles are the amazing actresses and their routinely memorable and moving performances. With today’s Woman Crush Wednesday, we’re celebrating one of those laudable ladies by talking up a hard-working and versatile actress who has been putting in consistently terrific and engrossing work over the past 11 years of her professional acting career. She’s an extremely talented person who deserves more hype, so be sure to be loud and proud as you give it up for July 2022’s first WCW, the remarkable Rebecca Rittenhouse!
WHO’S THAT GAL: Rebecca Rittenhouse
WHY WE’RE CRUSHING: Rittenhouse stars as the titular lead in Hulu Original title Maggie, which premieres on the platform today on July 6. In this brand new romantic-comedy series, Maggie is a young woman graced with psychic abilities, allowing her to see the futures of everyone from friends and family to random people on the street, and has even made a career out of her powers. But after seeing herself in the future of a client (David Del Rio) while on the job giving him a psychic reading, her life quickly gets way more complicated, making her an absolute mess of her present. Can she let herself fall for someone when she’s already seen how it’s all supposed to end? Find out this month in Maggie, only on Hulu.
WHERE YOU’VE SEEN HER BEFORE: Rittenhouse’s professional onscreen debut was in 2011, when she played Veronica in romantic-drama short film Philadelphia, Ti Amo. Just a few years later, she appeared in her first TV series, playing Jocelyn in an episode of Golden Globe-winning Showtime Original drama series The Affair, then quickly moved on to make her mark in even more shows with recurring roles in Red Band Society, Blood & Oil, and The Mindy Project between 2014 and 2017. From there, she made memorable appearances guest starring in episodes of Suits, The Handmaid’s Tale, Into the Dark, and The Good Cop, and also made a name for herself as a force to be reckoned with on the big screen with roles in feature films like 2018 comedy-drama Don’t Worry He Won’t Get Far on Foot, 2018 horror Unfriended: Dark Web, 2019 comedy-drama Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, and 2021 romantic-comedy Good on Paper.
She has also already proven that she has what it takes to help carry a TV show thanks to her great work as Ainsley Howard in 2019 Hulu Original romantic-comedy mini-series Four Weddings and a Funeral. With that in mind, we have no doubt that Rittenhouse is going to crush it in Maggie and so much more, and we can’t wait to see all of the incredible projects and successes that she’ll accumulate in the years ahead.
WHERE YOU’LL SEE HER AGAIN: Unfortunately, we’re not sure what’s next for Rittenhouse role-wise at the moment, but you can at least keep up with the latest from the actress in the meantime by following her on Instagram now. Don’t miss a moment from this week’s wonderful WCW!
