Angela Kinsey and George Takei respectively debut at Nos. 1 and 2 on The Hollywood Reporter’s Top Actors chart dated Aug. 8.

The Top Actors chart is a ranking of the most popular actors on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube and Google Plus, with global data provided by social media analytics company MVPindex. The chart's methodology blends social engagement on the platforms along with weekly additions of followers/subscribers. The latest tracking week ended July 31.

Kinsey and Takei, neither of whom had made the top 25 rankings prior to the latest list, lead Mark Hamill, Will Smith and Ricky Gervais in the top five.

Meanwhile, Lili Reinhart is the other actor to reach the top 10 of the chart for the first time, re-entering the ranking at No. 10 after previously peaking at No. 14 (May 23).

She added 24,000 new followers on the service, a week-over-week increase of 63 percent.
