The British Are Coming

7 British Men making us wonder why we decided to gain our independence.

Posted on

1. Ben Barnes


Ben Barnes starred in The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian as Prince Caspian. You can also catch him Dorian Gray as Dorian Gray.

2. Ed Westwick


Ed Westwick is best known for his role as Chuck Bass, the bad boy with a good heart, on Gossip Girl. If you can't get enough of him, Gossip Girl is on Netflix. So is Chalet Girl a romantic comedy with him as the male protagonist.

David Tennant


Onto Doctor Who territory we go! Allons-y! David Tennant's portrayal as the 10th Doctor earned him the love of the fangirls. He also starred in Broadchurch and will star in the American version of the show. (I don't know why they would an American version and cast the exact same star so soon after it aired in Britain, but hey... it's David Tennant so why not?) You can also see him on Netflix in The Decoy Bride.

3. Matt Smith


Matt Smith is cool. The actor played the 11th Doctor, a self-proclaimed "Madman in a box" who helped solidify Doctor Who internationally.

4. Robbie Kay / Via

Okay, okay, before you say anything, though he is on the younger side, Robbie Kay is 18. Therefore legally he is an adult. And he is a fan favorite for his portrayal of Peter Pan on ABC's Once Upon A Time. If you want to see more of Robbie, you can catch him in Ways To Live Forever.

5. Benedict Cumberbatch


Benedict Cumberbatch plays the incredibly likeable Sherlock Holmes on Sherlock. He brings to life the high functioning sociopath in Moffat's interpretation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's beloved classic. He also starred in Star Trek Into Darkness and The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. So he is popular with the fan girls. Some call themselves Cumberbitches, but he calls them Cumberbabes and Cumberladies instead.

6. Tom Hiddleston


Is it madness? Is it? Yes, yes it is. But its good madness. Tom Hiddleston's portrayal of Loki, the villain in Thor... and The Avengers.... AND Thor 2 has a fan following so large, the hero is largely ignored. I mean look at his dance moves.
