British actors reaching our shores aren’t an entirely new thing. If you have satellitetv.net service and access to any of the major US cable networks, then you obviously have seen Hugh Laurie of House fame or even Jason Isaacs from the short-lived show Awake.
However, few UK actors have made quite an impact or have become quite as wildly celebrated as Idris Elba and Benedict Cumberbatch.
Both actors have made frequent appearances in US films with Idris Elba, for now, leading the way with such films like American Gangster, Thor, Prometheus and the (as of yet) unreleased Pacific Rim and Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom.
Benedict Cumberbatch, while relatively new, has made quite a splash in American cinema as well. He had a stellar role in Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, enjoyed a strong supporting role in War Horse and has moved on to star in some pretty high-profile films including The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, and the upcoming Star Trek into Darkness and The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (where he voices the titular dragon)!
There are lots of different stories and things they attribute their success to, but the key unifying aspect is their global approach to acting. Just because they are British doesn’t mean they narrow their focus for British audiences only, and that’s why they have fared so well in the States.
