TV Loves Redheads (and so do we!) // TV

Although naturally blonde, I always thought myself as a redhead, because, when I was little, my hair actually looked carrot-red inside water! Growing up, I realized that I was really fond of natural redheads, men and women, but so does everyone else, right? Have you ever wondered how many redheaded actors have been the leading stars of so many TV series while red hair occurs naturally on approximately 1–2% of the human population? That must mean something! Is it the color of their skin, their freckles, that beautiful color on their hair which is so difficult to get artificially or those eyes that look brighter on them then on any other skin?
