Priyanka Chopra’s wedding to Nick Jonas makes her the biggest actor on social media, moving from No. 2 to No. 1 on The Hollywood Reporter’s Top Actors chart dated Dec. 12.

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 Dec. 4.

Chopra spends a fourth week at No. 1, but her rule is her first in over a year, most recently leading the list in September 2017.

A total of three different actors make the chart’s top 10 for the first time, led by Quincy Brown at No. 4. Ross Lynch (No. 9) and Jameela Jamil (No. 10) round out the top 10.
