Sexiest British Actors
The UK has a long history of providing the world with some of the sexiest, sultriest, and suavest actors and actresses the world has ever seen. After a century of British film, we're still going strong, with British talent providing the crème de la crème of the sexiest people on Earth. If you're in the mood for a little bit of VIP eye-candy action, the Wink Bingo team has provided a definitive list of the top 10 sexiest British actors and actresses alive. Let's dive in.
1. Tom HollandLet's start with the sexiest British blokes on the silver screen. 23-year-old Tom Holland from Kingston-Upon-Thames got his major break playing Peter Parker in the latest iterations of the Spider-Man and Avengers franchises, winning hearts across the globe for his boyish good looks and dreamy eyes. He's already gained a massive cult following of devotees, so you'll have to get in line.
2. Kit HarringtonOne of our most popular Wink Bingo slots might be the Fire vs Ice game, but it's A Song of Ice and Fire which launched the career of sultry heartthrob Kit Harrington, who rose to fame playing Jon Snow in HBO's adaptation series Game of Thrones. Harrington's brooding, dark features and his adorable accent are what have helped cement his status as one of the sexiest actors alive.
3. John Boyega27-year-old John Boyega from London became an instant superstar overnight when he joined Disney to play Finn in their reboot of the Star Wars franchise. Since then he's gained a reputation as one of the hottest hunks in the business, topping numerous rankings of the sexiest new actors on the scene. Fans of his work will have to wait for his next appearance as Finn, since he's currently doing a stint at the Old Vic, where he's starring in the acclaimed play Woyzeck.
4. Andrew ScottAndrew Scott might have seemed like an unusual choice for these rankings a few short years ago, but his role as the 'Hot Priest' in Phoebe Waller-Bridge's smash-hit TV series Fleabag changed all of that. His iconic role no doubt made many of us realize for the first time that priests could indeed be very attractive. To quote Waller-Bridge in the show: "It's the whole forbidden fruit thing."
5. Idris ElbaWe can't round off a ranking like this without a true silver fox. 47-year-old Elba has been ranked the sexiest man alive countless times, and it's hard to see him being knocked off his perch. There has been feverish speculation over whether Elba will step up to play the sexiest role alive, that of James Bond, in the next few years. We can only hope that he will.
6. Emilia Clarke32-year-old Emilia Clarke may have a rich career behind her, but the image most of us will have of her for all eternity will likely be of her with platinum-blonde hair and iconic blue dress during her time spent playing Daenerys Targaryen in Game of Thrones. The Mother of Dragons is undoubtedly one of the sexiest British actresses on the scene right now, and we hope she will continue to break hearts on the big screen in the near future.
7. Keira Knightley34-year-old Knightley is no stranger to sexy roles, having played the seductive swashbuckler Elizabeth Swann, the heartbreaker princess Anna Karenina, and the hedonistic aristocrat Georgina Cavendish. Her long career has secured her place as a true British sex symbol - a woman of unrivaled elegance, finesse, and grace.
8. Emma WatsonEmma Watson may have gotten her start in the Harry Potter franchise, but nowadays she's one of the hottest actresses alive, beating out both Jennifer Lawrence and Scarlett Johansson in a recent BBC roundup of the sexiest women on Earth. Her acting prowess on screen is absolutely undeniable, whilst her magnetic personality and sultry stare have helped confirm Watson as one of the most attractive women in the world.
9. Naomie HarrisNaomie Harris may be a serious actress who is no stranger to Oscar, Emmy, and Golden Globe nominations, but that doesn't mean she can't get us all hot under the collar. Her silky smooth accent and seductive walk in her role as Moneypenny in the latest James Bond films helped the whole world finally realize that Harris has a natural kind of sensuality that is hard to find these days.
10. Gillian Anderson
This one may seem like a bit of a cop-out, given that Anderson holds both British and American citizenship, but we felt that no ranking like this would be complete without her. She might be 51, but this is a woman who simply oozes sensuality, and continues to break the hearts of men and women both on and off the big screen. Her recent role as a freewheeling sex therapist in Netflix's Sex Education series will no doubt provide fantasy material for a generation of Anderson fans.
So there you have it, our personal Wink Bingo rundown of the top 10 sexiest British actors alive. What do you make of these hottie high rollers? Do you agree with our top picks?
