And 2013 is no different as there are a whole host of British actors who have very exciting and successful years ahead of them with some great projects on the horizon.
We take a look at some of the British actors who are whipping up a story on the other side of the pond this year.
- Henry Cavill
The role of Superman is one of the most iconic of all time and Henry Cavill is going to take over that role when the franchise is rebooted this summer.
Man of Steel will see the actor team up with visionary filmmaker Zack Snyder as the popular Superman franchise is rebooted.
The role of Clark Kent is set to be the biggest part of Cavill’s acting career and it will send his star rocketing this summer.
- Benedict Cumberbatch
A British actor who is creating quite a storm this week is Benedict Cumberbatch as he is one of the fantastic new additions to the cast list of Star Trek Into Darkness.
He takes on the role of John Harrison in the J.J. Abrams directed movie in what is the biggest film role of his career.
It is great to see Cumberbatch in a role such as Harrison as it really shows off his villainous side - which is something that we have not seen from the actor so far.
And this movie kicks off a super busy year for Cumberbatch as we are going to see him in a series of movies including Twelve Years A Slave, August: Osage County and The Fifth Estate.
- Carey Mulligan
Carey Mulligan already has a Best Actress Oscar nomination under her belt but it has been a while since we have seen her on the big screen - Shame at the beginning of 2012 was her last movie.
But 2013 sees her back as she is set to take on the role of Daisy Buchanan in Baz Luhrmann’s big screen adaptation of the much loved novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald.
Mulligan is working with Luhrmann for the first time on this project and she will also team up with Leonardo DiCaprio and Joel Edgerton.
She is also set to star in Inside Llewyn Davis, which is the latest film from Oscar winning filmmakers Joel and Ethan Coen.
- Tom Hiddleston
We haven’t seen Hiddleston on the big screen since the billion dollar success of Avengers Assemble this time last year… but the actor is back in 2013.
He is set to reprise the role of Loki this autumn with Thor: The Dark World - which sees him reunite with Chris Hemsworth.
This is the second stand alone Thor movie and it is already one of the most highly anticipated films of the year.
