Star Wars has dominated at the American box office for the past 40 years. One-third of the country’s 15 top-grossing films of all time are Star Wars movies, and it is likely that future releases will also do exceedingly well.
The blockbuster series has lined not only the pockets of production studios, but of all those involved, especially the actors. In addition to introducing young, up and coming actors such as Daisy Ridley and John Boyega, numerous Hollywood superstars enjoyed taking part in the films — be it with larger or smaller parts.
24/7 Wall St. has identified the most successful Star Wars actors by creating an index based on audience ratings of each actors’ films and television shows – be they Star Wars or not – and the number of annual page views for each actor. This reflects both financial success as well as the actors’ level of celebrity.
