Famous UK and Irish Actors Who Have A Completely Different Reputation In The US

5/18 Famous Actors Who Have A Completely Different Reputation In The UK And Ireland:

Tom Ellis

I just feel like I need to tell as many people as possible that before he was the Netflix bombshell we see in Lucifer, Tom was "Gary", the adorkable male lead with a dad-bod in hilarious Britcom, Miranda.

Olivia Colman

Brits will recall Olivia as the erratic Sophie in cult comedy Peep Show, whereas audiences across the Atlantic are more familiar with Olivia's stints on Fleabag and The Crown, or her oscar-winning performance as Queen Anne in The Favourite.

James Corden

American audiences know James as a powerhouse of late night entertainment, as well as an actor in big-budget features such as Ocean's 8, Cats, and The Prom, but over here we know him as the rambunctious Smithy from Gavin & Stacey.

Jodie Comer

Jodie's incredible performance as Villanelle in spy thriller Killing Eve earned her the respect of the entire western world! But she's also remembered here in the UK for her roles in shows like My Mad Fat Diary, Doctor Foster, and Thirteen.

Himesh Patel

Himesh is really on a roll, racking up leading parts in blockbusters such as Yesterday and Tenet, but my family and I will always remember him fondly as Tamwar Masood, the nerdy Oxbridge wannabe in EastEnders.
