Google released its list of top trending actors, defined as those who had the biggest bump compared to last year. As such, it’s a lucky list for newcomers and breakout stars.
Amusingly, the #10 spot goes to Tommy Wiseau, creator of The Room. The making of this “So Bad, It’s Good” classic was portrayed in The Disaster Artist. Wiseau was portrayed by James Franco.
Spot #8 goes to Tom Holland, who got his big break in Captain America: Civil War as Peter Parker/Spider-Man. Now he got his own movie with Spider-Man: Homecoming, a great addition to the webslinger’s filmography.
Stranger Things’ Millie Bobby Brown was #5. She plays Eleven, a psychic child raised in a government lab. Season 3 is not expected until 2019, but check her out in Godzilla: King of the Monsters.
Bill Skarsgård, who plays Pennywise in It, was #6. He was really unknown before this film, and “It” certainly wasn’t an easy character to play, given the need to balance the silly and sinister.
Similar to Holland is Gal Gadot at #3. Last year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was divisive, but her solo debut in Wonder Woman was far more popular with fans and critics.
#1 isn’t a newcomer, though: Meghan Markle got the top spot as she prepares for her role as a British princess. We’re not sure what movie that’s for.
