Colorado native Molly Burnett just couldn’t snuff her passion for acting. She dropped out of college and moved to Sherman Oaks in 2008. Just four months later, she landed a principal role on Days of Our Lives—and she’s worked steadily ever since. Last year she was nominated for an Emmy for Relationship Status (aired on the app go90), and now she’s busy at work on the second season of Queen of the South (USA Network). “It’s a show about strong, badass women,” Molly explains. Here, shown in the season’s hottest trend—animal prints—the actress proves she’s got a little sass herself.
