Most Famous Actor From Each State


To determine the most famous actor from each state, 24/7 Wall St. created an index based on each actor’s STARmeter ranking on the Internet Movie Database, the number of audience user ratings of all films and television shows in which the actors appear, and the number of page views of each actor’s Wikipedia pages from May 2017 to May 2018. To be considered, each actor had to appear in the top 10,000 rankings on IMDb’s STARmeter.

Each actor’s place of birth was the reference point for determining where they are from. Actors who have gained the majority of their fame for reasons other than acting, such as Meghan Markle, were excluded from consideration.
