Our mates from UK have flocked the American shores these past few years, and we’re not really complaining. Check out some of our favorite British acts/imports!
1. HENRY CAVILL
Mr. Cavill is the hunk of the season, breaking out as the Man of Steel this summer. Though he (super) briefly dated Kaley Cuoco, we still think he’s “fit”.
2. EMMA WATSON
Oh, Emma. Your legions of followers aren’t enough to express how mighty you are. (When in doubt, check out Tumblr.)
We simply hate-to-love how ridiculously cheesy but catchy their tunes are, especially when you associate them with each of their adorable faces.
4. ELLIE GOULDING
“Anything could happen”, but Ellie will always be our favorite alternative pop darling. We’re still waiting for that magical collab with BF Skrillex, by the way.
5. JOSHUA BOWMAN
Starring alongside pre-twerk Miley Cyrus and blonde beauty Emily Van Camp, Josh is our man. Revenge returns this fall, and we’re itching to see him don those suits once again.
6. CAREY MULLIGAN
Carey’s always going for the diverse roles – the ambitious Jenny, the sassy Sissy, and the meek Daisy – that’s why this pixie dream girl is a favorite on those film festivals.
7. NICHOLAS HOULT
Nicholas has come a long way from his award-winning stint in About a Boy, but this Skins actor is certainly following the footsteps of the likes of Fassbender and Grant in the acting department. Jennifer Lawrence must be coiling in regret, no?
8. LENA HEADEY
Cersei’s certainly got it. Sporting a hair color different from what she really has, Lena has climbed her way up the May-December fantasies of most of us.
9. ED SHEERAN
Ed built us a lego house, surely, but “everything has changed” when he started strumming his way up the charts, and to the hearts of every girl out there.
10. GEMMA ARTERTON
Gemma — yes, the hot one from Prince of Persia — is on fire this year! Aside from Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, she also has the critical darling Byzantium plus two more films coming up.
