Unknown to many, there are a number of celebrities in the USA with roots in Britain. The following is a list of seven of them.

Daniel Day-Lewis

This seasoned actor was born in London on April 29, 1957. He was also raised here. He is among actors who have won three Oscars for the Best Actor. The movies that earned him these awards are Abraham Lincoln, There Will Be Blood and My Left Foot.  Day-Lewis spent most of his early career years doing theater and UK television, including Frost In May in the UK. He later relocated to the United States, and many think he is American.

We’d love to call them our home-grown talent but some of today’s biggest stars are actually ex-pats!
