IMDB reveals the most searched actors of 2016

We’re getting to that time of year where websites start publishing lists about what we’ve been up to over the past 12 months. First up this year is movie information site IMDb, which has revealed which film stars were the most searched in 2016.

Sitting comfortably at the top of the list this year is Margot Robbie. The Australian actress has been one of the breakout stars over the last few years, but it was her role as supervillain Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad that sent her to the top of the list this time.

In second place is Emelia Clarke - or as most probably know her Daenerys Targaryen from Game of Thrones - and in third is Stranger Things newcomer Millie Bobby Brown.

Interestingly, eight out of the top ten most searched actors this year were women, with Deadpool's Morena Baccarin, Wonder Woman Gal Gadot and new Lara Croft Alicia Vikander all also making the list.

Representing the boys, were the ever so studly Tom Hardy and Leonardo DiCaprio, both of whom appeared in Oscar-winner The Revenant.

The full list is as follows:

1. Margot Robbie

2. Emilia Clarke

3. Millie Bobby Brown

4. Tom Hardy

5. Morena Baccarin

6. Gal Gadot

7. Alicia Vikander

8. Daisy Ridley

9. Haley Bennett

10. Leonardo DiCaprio

As well as the top actors, IMDb also looks at the "breakout" stars of the year. Millie Bobby Brown appears again - this time in the no 1 position. Other actors who hit it big this year - based on online searches at least - include new Spider-Man Tom Holland, Room's Brie Larson, and new Star Wars baddie Adam Driver.

Here's the full list:

1. Millie Bobby Brown

2. Haley Bennett

3. Tom Holland

4. Natalia Dyer

5. Brie Larson

6. Evan Rachel Wood

7. Adam Driver

8. Sam Claflin

9. Jeffrey Dean Morgan

10. Sofia Boutella
