After nine weeks at No. 1 in a row, Dwayne Johnson concedes the top spot on The Hollywood Reporter’s Top Actors chart to Millie Bobby Brown, who moves 2-1 on the ranking dated Jan. 31.

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 Jan. 23.

Brown, who had previously led the chart for one week in November and had spent three straight weeks at No. 2 prior to her latest triumph, leads Johnson, who falls to No. 2.

Priyanka Chopra jumps into the top five, moving 10-5, and Deepika Padukone and Noah Schnapp re-enter the top 10 at Nos. 8 and 9, respectively, while Jack Dylan Grazer reaches the top 10 for the first time at No. 10.
