For the first time, Millie Bobby Brown reigns over The Hollywood Reporter’s Top Actors chart for two weeks in a row, ruling the list dated March 7.

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 Feb. 27.

The Stranger Things co-star oversees a chart that features general No. 1 stalwart Dwayne Johnson at No. 2, followed by Will Smith, Jennifer Lopez and Kevin Hart in the top five.

Meanwhile, Priyanka Chopra leaps back into the top 10 (16-6) and Black Panther stars Chadwick Boseman and Lupita Nyong’o rank at Nos. 9 and 10, respectively, their first times in the top 10. They join fellow co-star Michael B. Jordan in the top 10; he’s up one spot to No. 8.

See the top 10 below (and for the full 25-position ranking, pick up the THR issue dated March 7), and for more charts on The Hollywood Reporter, check out the Top Comedians and Top TV Personalities charts.
