George Ezra, Harry Potter‘s Daniel Radcliffe and Killing Eve star Jodie Comer are among the leading celebrities in Forbes’ 30 Under 30 list for 2019.

The prestigious ranking of influential celebrities also sees inclusions for the likes of Ella Mai, Jorja Smith, actress Lily James, and model Iskra Lawrence.

The annual list from the publication celebrates 300 young stars from Europe, ranging from established faces to upcoming stars who have proved influential in their individual fields.


Alex Wood, Forbes’ Europe Editor, said: “Four years on from its launch, the 30 Under 30 Europe list continues to be not only the defining measure of success for the region’s next generation of leaders, but also a source of empowerment for all honorees.

“We’ve searched throughout Europe to identify 300 of the most revolutionary entrepreneurs, innovators and disruptors in ten diverse sectors, who are changing the game throughout the region and across the globe.”

The list was also notable in its inclusion of Letitia Wright, who won the BAFTA Rising Star award on Sunday evening.

Accepting her award, Wright said: “A few years ago I saw myself in a deep depression and I wanted to quit acting.


‘The only thing that pulled me out of that was God, my belief, my family, and an email from BAFTA telling me they wanted me to be a part of BAFTA Breakthrough Brits and it inspired me to keep going.
