No one can deny that Robert Pattinson is one of the most popular and attractive actors today. With his boyish charm and devilish good looks, it’s no wonder why people are going crazy over the 25-year-old British actor.
It seems that Pattinson’s popularity is not only limited to our shores. Fans of the “Twilight” star have been buzzing over every detail of his personal life for years now, and it looks like they aren’t going to stop anytime soon.
According to new research published by Swipe, a brand analytics company, Robert Pattinson is currently the most searched UK actor on Google Search.
The results are in from the latest Google search engine, and it seems that fans are going crazy over Pattinson’s recent relationship with musician FKA Twigs. Last week, the pair performed together for the first time in years at London’s Royal Albert Hall. The concert, which was sold out, was an ‘anti-Valentine’s Day celebration,’ according to one attendee.
While we wait for more details about the performance, it’s worth taking a look back at the most searched for UK stars before the couple’s big reunion on Valentine’s Day.
The most searched for UK star of the last decade was undoubtedly Harry Potter. In fact, the boy wizard was the most searched for UK actor almost every week of 2010-2017. It seems that Potter fans were keen to follow the progress of the young Harry as he went on to become one of the most popular children’s novels of all time. The series, which began in 2007, also became the longest-running film franchise ever, with seven films and counting.
Potter fans had a lot to live for in the last decade. The franchise became a massive international success, grossing more than £8billion worldwide. It also won a record-breaking seven Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Actor for Daniel Radcliffe in 2012’s Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2. Potter’s final film, The Tales of Beedle the Bard, was released last year.
The second most searched for UK actor of the last decade is undoubtedly Chris Hemsworth. The “Avengers” and “Star Wars” star has become one of Hollywood’s most bankable stars since the start of this year, when he appeared in J.J. Abrams’ blockbuster The Rise of Skywalker. Hemsworth is currently filming the fifth and final installment of the “Avengers” series, due for release in May 2021.
Hemsworth’s star has risen quickly since the first “Avengers” film in 2014. The Australian actor has made a name for himself internationally and in the UK since starring alongside Britney Spears in 2003’s “Baby One More Time.” He is also known to have a very large family, with 12 children between him and his wife, Elsa Pataky. The family have moved to Los Angeles due to his rising fame and fortune.
The third most searched for UK actor of the last decade is undoubtedly Daniel Radcliffe. The “Harry Potter” and “Deathly Hallows” star has had a string of successful films in recent years, with his most recent film, “The Mortification Of Dick Sudbury,” earning him a lot of critical acclaim. Radcliffe plays the titular role in the film, an adaptation of the 1881 satire by Mark Twain. The movie is a black comedy about a man obsessed with cleanliness who is mortified when he has to share a stage with a pig for a day.
Radcliffe’s fans have followed his career closely since he began appearing in “Harry Potter” in 2007. His first film, the dark comedy “Harry Potter And The Sorcery Professor,” was released in 2011. He also voiced the character of Bob in the 2013 Oscar-nominated animated film, “The Bookworm Adventure: The Search For More Treasure.” Radcliffe will next appear in the upcoming J.K. Rowling stage show, “Harry Potter And The Cursed Child.”
Another famous “Harry Potter” alumnus who made it onto our list is J.K. Rowling. The author and screenwriter of the wildly popular Harry Potter series was the fourth most searched for UK actor of the decade, with her books popularized in 1995 when the first installment of the series was published. Since then, the “Harry Potter” brand has become a global phenomenon, with the most recent installment grossing more than £120million worldwide and being one of the best-selling books in history. She has also written the stage play “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child,” which premieres in London this month.
Rowling’s celebrity transcends film—she is one of the most beloved celebrities in the UK, with her face regularly appearing on magazine covers and on the red carpet. Her influence also extends to social media, where she has more than 900 million Instagram followers. Rowling loves to engage with her fans on her social media platforms, often using them as a means to promote upcoming books and projects. For example, she used an Instagram story to promote her new series, “Quartet,” where she plays four characters, one of whom is based on herself. In the story, she details what it’s like to grow up as a “Muggle”—a term used to describe people who are not a part of the “Wizard” community—in the early 1980s.
The fifth most searched for UK actor of the last decade is undoubtedly Robert Pattinson. The British actor rose to fame playing the lead role in the indie smash hit, “Savage Grace,” which came out in 2013. Since then, he has been busy appearing in a wide range of critically acclaimed and commercially successful films. In 2019, the “Twilight” star released his debut album, “Vanquish,” which featured the singles “What Doesn’t Kill You” and “Just Like That.”
Pattinson has also been one of the most photographed men in the world for the past few years, thanks to his starring role in the “Twilight” series. The actor was also heavily featured in Vogue’s January 2021 issue, which was released worldwide this week, along with its cover story on the star. The magazine’s editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour, said that she wanted to celebrate “a stunning year for Vogue” as well as “the incredible work of our cover photographers” in a statement.
Since “Savage Grace,” Robert Pattinson has become one of the most in-demand celebrities in the world. It seems like his popularity is not limited to our shores. In fact, fans have been searching for the British actor for years now, and it looks like they aren’t going to stop anytime soon.
