Cynthia Nixon
Although to those outside New York City, Cynthia Nixon will always be associated with her SATC character, Miranda Hobbs, Nixon is far more than that. Not only is she an award-winning star, both on stage and screen, but in 2018 she announced that she'd be running for Governor of New York, as a Democrat, against incumbent Andrew Cuomo. While she didn't win in the September primary, what she did do was force Cuomo to be more of a liberal Democrat than he already is. And, when you're living in a country where immigrants are being kept in cages and under an administration that wants to abolish the term transgender, the more liberal a Democrat can become, the better.
