After a steady gain from the top 20 to No. 2 on The Hollywood Reporter’s Top Actors chart in the previous three weeks, Millie Bobby Brown takes over the No. 1 spot of the ranking dated Nov. 22.

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. 14.

Brown, who unseats Dwayne Johnson and his four-week run at No. 1 (he falls to No. 2), leads a chart that also includes fellow Stranger Things actors Finn Wolfhard (No. 3) and Noah Schnapp (No. 8) in the top 10, leading a youth charge at the top of the chart.

Other major gains belong to Priyanka Chopra (13-9) and Deepika Padukone (re-enters at No. 10), the latter returning to the chart’s top 10 for the first time since the ranking dated Oct. 4 at No. 7.
