Clare Bowen plays Scarlett O'Connor on ABC’s ‘Nashville.’ As Scarlett, Clare not only gets to show off her considerable charm and acting chops, she also gets to sing many of the show’s most memorable songs.

The Australian performer is, in our eyes, the breakout star of ‘Nashville,’ and her portrayal of the soulful Scarlett may just be the best thing to come out of this year's crop of new scripted TV shows.

After seeing her appear in a number of small movies and short films, it’s great to see this beautiful and talented actress steal scenes from seasoned pros in one of the best new shows on TV.
