If there’s one thing that the Brits have going for them, it’s that dreamy accent. They could say something as bland as “what’s your name,” and it can sound like the most magical words in the world. And while American actors like Brad Pitt and George Clooney certainly get our heart rates up as leading men, we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention the sizable number of sexy British men from across the pond who have taken our interest in the entertainment industry to new heights in recent years. From recent UK transplant Prince Harry to Colin Firth, Dominic West, Idris Elba, and beyond, there’s a good chance the men who you watch on TV and listen to on podcasts hail from the UK. And we’ve rounded up all our favorites making a splash in Hollywood below.

Or recently rewatched old favorites like Game of Thrones, Downton Abbey and The Crown in one quarantine or another? No matter what you chose, there is probably a good chance you came across one of the dreamy British actors on our list. Whether it was the Bridgerton favorite Regé-Jean Page or Daniel Craig, AKA James Bond, there’s one thing we know for sure; There are quite a few English men who’ve had some pretty incredible careers and are also very easy on the eyes.
Read on for the sexiest British men in Hollywood whose careers we seriously admire, because you deserve the inspiration — and the eye candy.
