Why not Coulby for Person of the Year?

The list of nominees for Time magazine’s Person of the Year is always an eclectic mix of world leaders, pop culture icons, buzzworthy names, and human rights activists. The unexpected inclusion of the 35-year-old actress, as a 2016 nominee has therefore sparked controversy and debate.

“What makes Coulby so important is the potential and influence she now has, rather than anything she has already done,” said a panelist who preferred to remain anonymous, adding that earlier this month, the actress have already been named ‘English Of The Year’ by some major English newspapers and even ‘London Citizen Of The Year’ by the readers of a local gazette in London (Angel Coulby's hometown).

Social Reactions to TIME’s Person of the Year

A representative for the actress was not immediately available for comment, but the announcement generated immediate reaction on Twitter:

“#CoulbyPOY. Logical choice though I wouldn't have made the same one.”

“Congrats! Angel has this charisma that seems to come out of nowhere.”
— @SamanthaJones, 30 May 2016
“Past recipients include Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler ... then why not Angel Coulby?”
— @TheClassicObserver, 30 May 2016

Could 2016 officially be the Year of Angel Coulby?

Still, TIME’s editors will make the final decision about who will grace the magazine’s cover as its 2016 Person of the Year.
