Time has released 100 Most Influential People list for 2014. It includes Scandal star Kerry Washington and House of Cards actress Robin Wright, who started her career on the daytime soap opera Santa Barbara.

President Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett penned a tribute to Washington: "Occasionally in American pop culture, an icon emerges who captivates us and provides a vivid snapshot of who we are and the changing times in which we live. In her role as Olivia Pope, Scandal's unflappable political fixer, Kerry Washington has used her grace and vibrant magnetism to transcend age, race and gender, and to provide a new mainstream media lens through which to view modern womanhood and professional excellence."

Naomi Watts wrote about Wright: "Robin Wright is a woman who can check all the boxes. Anyone who has seen her in House of Cards knows how she is able to take her talents — deep thought, beauty, raw truth — and incorporate all of them onscreen. My experience of Robin evolved, from watching her in The Princess Bride and Forrest Gump, then meeting her and finally collaborating with her, each time the impression becoming greater. I remember her fragility and depth in early performances. She was mesmerizing."
