British actors with their elegance and unparalleled charm have ruled women’s heart forever. Hugh Grant, Colin Firth, Alan Rickman, Daniel Craig, Hugh Laurie – the list is infinite. Therefore, HookedUpon brings an exclusive account of eleven most popular British actors the Gen-Y is drooling over. Check out if your favorite star is on our list.
#1 Benedict Cumberbatch
He is probably the most loved British actor in India. If those sharp cheekbones were not enough, Sherlock (BBC) actor has a voice and accent to die for. His portrayal of Khan in Star Trek: Into The Darkness gave us another reason for the crazy fangirl-ing (and fanboy-ing too). The Alan Turing in The Imitation Game will always be remembered. We’re dying to see him as Marvel’s Doctor Strange.
#2 Tom Hiddleston
This Westminster born actor’s claim to fame was playing the antagonist Loki in Marvel’s Thor. With a classic handsome look and oh-so-cute smile, Tom Hiddleston, who is called ‘Boyfriend of the Internet’ by his fans, amazed us with his exceptionally rich vocabulary and perfect gentleman attitude. We are in love with his love for Shakespeare’s drama. And he is a feminist too.
#3 Eddie Redmayne
With two Oscar nominations and an Oscar award for the best actor category, Eddie Redmayne is our latest silver-screen crush. You may also know him from the movie ‘The Theory of Everything’. He will be playing the protagonist in Harry Potter prequel ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’. We can’t wait!
#4 James McAvoy
We loved him as Professor Charles Xavier in X-Men prequel. The blue-eyed British actor charmed us with his intelligent demeanor as Thomas Lefroy in ‘Becoming Jane.’ And who can forget his performance as Dr. Frankenstein in Victor Frankenstein?
#5 Theo James
Theo James won our hearts at the moment he appeared on TV as Kemal Pamuk in Downton Abbey. The Divergent heartthrob has Greek, British and Scottish blood in him. He’s not only an actor, but the vocalist and guitarist of a band named, Shere Khan.
#6 Martin Freeman
It’s impossible not to love him as Dr. John Watson (Sherlock, BBC). Don’t you think he was adorable as Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit? Actually, we love him for whatever role he has played. And that unmatched sass in his interviews, we love.
#7 Gary Oldman
Thanks to the character he played in the Harry Potter series, girls around the globe went gaga over this 58-year-old actor. The veteran actor, musician, producer played iconic characters like Count Dracula. But we love him the most for his portrayal of Sirius Black in Harry Potter and James Gordon in Batman trilogy.
#8 Tom Felton
Rowling accused him for making Draco Malfoy, the arch rival of Harry Potter, a desirable man among young women. With good looks like his, he is bound to have all the girls falling head over heels for him.
#9 Henry Cavill
His Greek God appearance didn’t go overlooked by Indian fans. We fell for the dimpled chin of The Man of Steel. The new-age Superman also made Charles Brandon look sexy in BBC show The Tudors.
#10 Damian Lewis
He triumphed over our heart as Nicholas Brody in Homeland and is continuing winning over millions of hearts as Bobby Axelrod in ‘Billions’.
#11 Daniel Radcliffe
Last but in no way the least, Daniel Radcliffe. He’s making the girls crazy since he was 12 years old. We can’t get enough of that cute face, scruffy hair and shining eyes.
