IMDB’s published their annual list of the actors who’ve garnered the most interest from their website visitors. The 2016 list is topped by Suicide Squad‘s Margot Robbie, pushing out 2015’s top star, Tom Hardy, who earned fourth place on the top 10 list this year. The popular internet site also released the top 10 list of the year’s breakout actors, with Millie Bobby Brown from Stranger Things at the top of that list. According to IMDB, the breakout stars list is made up of actors who’ve made the top 100 list for the first time and “consistently ranked highest on the IMDb weekly STARmeter chart throughout the year.”

“Many of the women who charted on IMDb’s Top 10 Stars of 2016 list portrayed strong female protagonists in some of the biggest live-action titles of the year,” stated Keith Simanton, IMDb’s Senior Film Editor. “From Suicide Squad and Deadpool to Star Wars: The Force Awakens, remarkable female characters were at the center of the action in 2016 – whether sprung from the pages of comic books or a galaxy far, far away.”

“We recognized the high level of interest in Margot Robbie early on in her career. In 2014 she was our #1 Breakout Star of the year. She ranked #3 on IMDb’s 2015 and 2014 Top Stars lists. This year she capitalized on that momentum with a standout performance as Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad. It also helped that she appeared in two other films in 2016: She played Jane Clayton in The Legend of Tarzan and Tanya Vanderpoel in Whiskey Tango Foxtrot,” added Simanton.
