Dwayne Johnson holds down the No. 1 spot on The Hollywood Reporter's Top Actors chart for a second week in a row, while Dove Cameron debuts in the top 10 of the ranking dated Dec. 6.

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 Nov. 28.

Johnson extends his nonconsecutive No. 1 streak on Top Actors to 19 weeks in all, covering 70 percent of his weeks on the chart (and he's placed below No. 2 for only two weeks, and even then he ranked at Nos. 3 on Oct. 18 and 5 on June 21).

Meanwhile, Cameron, who debuts at No. 9, is joined in the top 10 by Priyanka Chopra (No. 4) and Cara Delevingne (No. 10), both of whom re-enter the top 10 after ranking in theregion multiple times in previous weeks. Chopra pops into the top 10 from No. 13 on the previous chart (Nov. 29), while Delevingne re-enters the 25-position ranking.
