Since before the British Invasion, our mates across the pond have been ace at dominating English-speaking media. Lads and lasses like Benedict Cumberbatch and Emily Blunt are just a snippet of what Great Britain currently has to offer.

With that in mind, the experts at PrettyFamous, an entertainment research site powered by Graphiq, have amassed a list of the most famous actors who call the United Kingdom home.

To make the list, actors must have been born in the U.K., completed their studies there or spent most of their life there – this means English, Northern Irish, Scottish and Welsh stars comprise the ranking. Irish chaps, such as Colin Farrell, are not included.

The actors are ranked from least to most famous. In order to judge an actor's relative popularity, PrettyFamous compiled an "Actor Score" for each actor. The score takes into account the number of awards an actor has been nominated for, the amount of views his or her Wikipedia page has had over the last 30 days and the IMDb rating of the TV shows and movies they have appeared in. In the case of a tie, the actor who won more awards was favored.

Are you ready to find out which Brit tops the ranking? Grab some tea and crumpets, crack open a bag of crisps and find out.

Note: Only actors with at least 30,000 views on their Wikipedia page are included, meaning current actors are favored.
