Talented TV actors aren’t always easy to spot but sometimes a lucky ray of sun does shine on them, elevating their brand new career to new heights. Netflix has produced hundreds of original movies and TV shows, so it’s no surprise that some of their stars managed to break out from under the streaming giant’s wing and become even more popular.
These are top 7 Netflix breakout actors and actresses who became international superstars!
1) Mahershala Ali – “House of Cards”
Okay, maybe Ali didn’t start out on Netflix, but it was his first big role. And after only a couple of episodes of “House of Cards”, everyone knew that one day he’ll be an Oscar-winner. And so it happened! He got an Oscar for “Green Book”! There’s also “True Detective”, “Battle Angel: Alita”, and many other smash hits.
2) Katherine Langford – “13 Reasons Why”
After all the crap-storms that “13 Reasons Why” had caused, it’s no surprise that Katherine Langford was noticed and picked up by some major players. The rumors were true – she was supposed to play Tony Stark’s daughter in the future. Can you imagine going from a TV show to “Avengers Endgame” in just 2 years? It’s sad that her scenes were cut from the movie, but I hope Marvel gives her a second chance one day.
