A new “British invasion” of sorts has been taking place, this time in the TV and movie scene. Let us look at twenty of them and what they have done to make themselves famous in the past few years.
1. Benedict Cumberbatch
Benedict Cumberbatch was a rugby player and painter at Harrow School, an independent institution northwest of London. The British star became big in his homeland for various roles, but his starring part in "Sherlock" is really what brought him international notoriety. He has gone on to star in Hollywood blockbusters like "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug," and "Star Trek: Into Darkness."
