Lauren Ridloff, the actress from Eternals and The Walking Dead, is being given the “Fan Favorite” STARmeter Award by IMDb during Black History Month. A star must be a significant player on the IMDbPro STARmeter rankings, which measure the page views of over 200 million monthly visitors to IMDb worldwide in order to be acknowledged for an IMDbSTARmeter Award. Makkari in Eternals and Connie in The Walking Dead helped propel Ridloff onto the IMDbPro STARmeter chart. Both movies were among IMDb’s Top 10 Movies and Top 10 Series of 2021.

Ridloff has been nominated for a 2018 Tony Award for her breakout role in Children of a Lesser God, and she has also won the SAG-AFTRA Harold Russell Award at the 2020 Media Access Awards. Fans of Ridloff’s role as Connie in The Walking Dead can anticipate the series’ return to AMC on February 20th.

“Thank you so much to my fans for your support and love,” Lauren Ridloff said in a statement celebrating her STARmeter Award recognition from Georgia, where she is currently shooting the final season of The Walking Dead. “I received this award because you went to IMDb and IMDbPro to learn more about me and the incredible projects that I’ve been fortunate to be a part of. Thank you for the honor.”

“Lauren’s phenomenal performances in everything from Sound of Metal to Eternals (as the first Deaf superhero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe) to The Walking Dead have leapt off screens and driven fans and professionals around the world to IMDb and IMDbPro to learn more about her work,” said Nikki Santoro, IMDb chief operating officer. “We congratulate Lauren as our newest recipient of an IMDb STARmeter Award and we are thrilled to celebrate her incredible achievements and watch her career continue to grow.”

Throughout Black History Month, IMDb is recognizing prominent Black actors, directors, producers, and writers with unique films and curated exhibitions and viewed at https://www.imdb.com/imdbpicks/blackhistorymonth.

The Eternals star also named a few people who had a big influence on her career, including deaf filmmaker Jade Bryan. Reflecting on how Bryan influenced her development as an actor, Ridloff stated, “That is what I’m referring to when I say to new actors: find your acting community.” “They’re there to help you.” Ridloff’s previous TV series and films can all be found on the IMDb Watchlist.

Eiza González, Peter Dinklage, Mindy Kaling, Sam Rockwell, Alexander Skarsgård, and Olivia Wilde are among the previous STARmeter Award recipients.
