I’ve already guessed but it could be Nicki Minaj.

Northern Ireland maybe....
But she's not Irish, so that can't be.

Are we even on the right track?

I think this is the point where the gamemaster typically starts dropping clues to help kick the ball across the finish line.
I just hate to deny someone that hero moment when they put it all together without a big clue.

Okay, hint #3: You have yet to guess a person in this thread who was born in her country of birth.
Ooh, I like that hint. We've guessed persons from:
England, Wales, Ireland, Canada and Iceland

So either she's Scottish or she was born in the U.S. but is not currently a U.S. citizen. Or we're looking at obscure possibilities like Singapore.
Perhaps Malta

There was a 'reason' that we ruled out Scotland. I do not recall what it was.
No reason. A user just checked and couldn't find anybody who fit the bill.

An interesting guess. Seems to tick all the boxes. Wikipedia describes her as a rapper at the top of her page, but says she's sort of a hybrid singer/rapper farther down, so I don't know about Q20 here. No one seems to be coming up with anything better, though, so, personally, I'd say go for it.

Go for it! We're out of free guesses anyway, so it doesn't matter if you guess again.

I couldn't find any information on the TV series Hollymation to check where it debuted, but she seems to fit everything else. Well, the blonde thing is interesting. It's unclear to me whether that Wikipedia article photograph of her is of a blonde wig rather than her real hair, but I wouldn't discount her for that.

Balki, I’d like to guess Nicki Minaj.

I can lick it, I can ride it while you slippin' and slidin'
I can do all them little tricks and keep the dick up inside it
You can smack it, you can grip it, you can go down and kiss it
And every time he leave me 'lone, he always tell me he miss it

Is it Nicki Minaj?

You're goddamn right it is.

Congratulations to han-shahanshah! That was close!

In b4 somebody finds evidence that Nicky Minaj is a US Citizen, or actually born and raised in Ireland.

We did an amazing job of threading the needle of the near perfect red herring set of questions that sent us on a wild goose chase combing through obscure Welsh blonde actresses. 😆

It was actually Village Idiot who first mentioned Trinidad and Tobago (long ago), but nobody picked up that thread. Just too many Welsh actresses to comb through.

I suppose she's been in four films, though I thought the criteria we had been using was if they are described as an actor on Wikipedia.

I got far enough outside the box to entertain the idea of Rihanna yet somehow managed to blow right past Nikki.

I would love to get an objective question like this: "Is she described as an 'actress' on Wikipedia?"

If I received such a question, I'd have said "yes." Wikipedia lists "actress" among five occupations for Minaj. Wikipedia also includes her on several lists of actresses.

She has been in at least four films (The Angry Birds Movie 2, Barbershop: The Next Cut, The Other Woman, and Ice Age: Continental Drift). She has also been on many TV shows. I think most of her appearances were just credits for appearing as herself (like her stint on American Idol), which I wouldn't count as acting, but I did not look into that because of the movie acting experience.
