    I've seen Amy for the first time in the POI and she immediately became one of my favorite actresses ever and took a very special place in my comprehension. Another terrific work is her role in "Dear Santa" - a continuous bliss of contemplation of her fabulous character! She is absolutely GREAT and unique in terms of human touch and soul warmth!!! Even playing a killer (Ms. Groves) she gains full sympathy and you suddenly become her ardent supporter, and it already doesn't matter, what she's doing. You just clearly know and FEEL, that she's fantastic and delightful! It's an amazing enjoyment to relish each single moment of her being present in the frame - her gestures, gait, the way how she turns her head, her facial expressions, unique tone of her voice and, of course, her absolutely magical smile... she's adorably, breathtakingly beautiful and draws you into an incredible experience of pure miracle. I don't know any other actress in our days (even among the world's best ones), who have such a direct and even unconscious reach to your heart. It's really magic! A HUGE-HUGE thanks and deep reverence to Amy for her being an actress, as it does bestow us a blessed opportunity to admire her preeminent exquisiteness and attaches us to the inspiring perfection!moreless

    Amy Acker as always been a great actress in Angel from what ive seen she as great acting for emotions including sadness, happiness, craziness. What can I say Winifred is great and so is Illyria although Illryia is for superior than Winifred she is the sort of character you fall in love with. Amy Ackers acting in the episodes just gets better and better especially in season 5 were she in one of the episodes were she is dying really shes her skills and commitment to acting and as Illryia she is so different and yet as still got the great skills.moreless
