Top 10 Breakthrough Actresses and Actors
• Many actors dream of being included in the list of discoveries of the year. But only the top ten, which are selected by the world's largest film base IMDb, succeed in this.
• The selection is based on STARmeter rating data, which is calculated from the actual page views of actors and actresses by more than 200 million unique IMDb visitors per month.
10. Diana Silvers
This actress entered the top 10 stellar breakthroughs thanks to the Netflix comedy Space Force. In it, she plays Erin, the daughter of General Mark Marke Naird, who is tasked with preparing a squad for landing on the moon.
• Together with Diana in this series, such Hollywood stars as Steve Carell, who returned to the role of an eccentric boss a la the TV series The Office, John Malkovich and Lisa Kudrow, who played Phoebe in the TV series Friends, play.
• Silvers will soon have a more dramatic role in the upcoming ballet drama Birds of Paradise, an adaptation of A.C. Small's novel Bright Burning Stars.
9. Freya Allan
The first, but not the only participant in the rating of new movie stars, who hit the top ten thanks to The Witcher. Fans of the video game series may be used to seeing Ciri (or Princess Cirilla) older, but Freya played a character that is in line with the source material (i.e., the books by Andrzej Sapkowski).
• You will be able to see Allan again in the second season of The Witcher and in the killer thriller Powder Cocktail, where she will play Karen Gillan's younger version of Eve.
8. Golshifte Farahani
Farahani became the first Iranian star since the 1979 revolution to star in a Hollywood production (2008 Body of Lies by Ridley Scott). And this decision led to the fact that Farahani became persona non grata in her country.
• In 2020, Farahani's performance as mercenary Nik Khan in Netflix's explosive hit Tyler Rake: Rescue Operation got viewers thinking about a spin-off film centered on her character. Farahani will next appear in Invasion, a new Apple TV+ series that is a copy of War of the Worlds.
7. Alba Baptista
This young Portuguese beauty has made it to the list of the best actors and actresses to discover with her first English speaking role in the Netflix series Warrior Nun.
• Fans loved the new image of Alba fighting demons. Netflix took note and renewed the series for a second season, assuring that we will see more of this talented actress soon.
6. Jurney Smollett
This actress can not be called a newcomer to Hollywood, her career is very fruitful, she began back in the 90s with the series "Hanging with Mr. Cooper" and continued with roles in "Friday Night Lights", "True Blood" and "Underground".
• And 2020 has definitely been a big year for Jurney, appearing as Black Canary in Birds of Prey alongside Margot Robbie and then playing the fearless Letitia “Fly” Lewis in the retro sci-fi series Lovecraft Country.
5. Victoria Pedretti
Victoria is best known for her roles in the Netflix series The Haunting of Hill House, its sequel The Haunting of Bly Manor and, again, in the Netflix series You. The third season of this series will be released in 2021.
4 Lauren Lapkus
The Wrong Girl turned out to be the one that managed to bring a healthy sense of humor to the Netflix show. The audience appreciated the contrast between the calm and reasonable Tim Morris (David Spade) and the eccentric, noisy heroine played by Lauren Lapkus.
• So if before the New Year (or after it) you want to charge yourself with a good mood, then you know what comedy to watch.
3. Maria Bakalova
One of the most prominent movie stars entered this list thanks to her participation in the mockumentary comedy "Borat 2".
• The surprise sequel introduced the Bulgarian-born actress to audiences around the world, who starred in several local projects before entering the global stage as Borat's daughter. After this movie brought audiences to tears with laughter, we hope to see more of Maria in Hollywood in the future.
2. Aidan Gallagher
The 17-year-old actor has been given the difficult task of truthfully playing a 58-year-old time traveler trapped in the body of a teenager in The Umbrella Academy. It's interesting to watch his solo efforts to prevent the apocalypse – often putting himself in harm's way to protect his family.
1. Anya Chalotra
"We wait! We are waiting!”, STARmeter editors must have said to themselves, watching the number of page views of the actress grow after the launch of The Witcher on Netflix.
And so they waited, the performer of the role of the sorceress Yennefer in the fantasy series took the first line of the most promising actresses. She also made it to the top three the best movie stars in the world, according to the version of the same IMDb.
• Fans won't have to wait long to see more of Anya, as The Witcher is set to return in 2021.
