This list is heavy on the spies, past, present and rebooted, namely Daniel Craig as James Bond, Henry Cavill as Napoleon Solo and the death of Patrick Macnee who was Steed in The Avengers (and if you haven't seen the UK series The Avengers, please do, it inspired a lot, from Marvel comics to modern day spy franchises).

There are also Timelords (Peter Capaldi, Matt Smith, David Tennant, Christopher Eccleston) and super heroes (Tom Holland) and romantic heroes (Sam Heughan, Aidan Turner).

And a sweeping curtsy to Eddie Redmayne OBE, James Corden OBE, Chiwetel Ejiofor CBE and Benedict Cumberbatch CBE.
