Netflix: British stars outshine American actors in top 10 most streamed shows in world

Lucifer: Netflix release preview teaser of conversation with God

Ex-EastEnders and Miranda actor Tom Ellis, 42, is our most successful leading man with his DC comic book serial Lucifer the second-highest viewed original drama series. And The Crown, starring Olivia Colman, 46, was the third most streamed series in US-centred ratings. 

Viewers watched nearly 19 billion minutes of the show, which came second to US drug drama Ozark in 2020.

Marketing expert Brodie Cooper, from Hollywood’s PRrppd said: “Lucifer was actually dropped by Fox TV, but Tom Ellis’s performances have made it a mega smash.

“Now he genuinely can be classed an A-lister.

“The UK success is remarkable. In Hollywood they always talk about the British invasion and how so many stars from the other side of the pond shine so bright. This list shows the depth of talent and appeal of shows the UK has globally.”
