Body­guard star named in top poll

Evening Times - - NEWS -

BODY­GUARD star Richard Mad­den has been named as one of the world’s most in­flu­en­tial peo­ple.

The ac­tor, who is from Elder­slie in Ren­frew­shire, made it to this year’s Time 100 list, along­side the likes of US pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump and singer-song­writer Tay­lor Swift – who ap­pears on one of the six cov­ers.

Mad­den thrilled view­ers in his role as the home sec­re­tary’s po­lice pro­tec­tion of­fi­cer in Jed Mer­cu­rio’s TV drama and has since been tipped as the next James Bond. He also starred in ear­lier se­ries of fan­tasy drama Game of Thrones.

Two of the other cov­ers went to en­ter­tain­ers, with San­dra Oh, known her roles in Grey’s Anatomy and Killing Eve, lead­ing the pi­o­neers, and Dwayne John­son as the cover for artists.

A Bri­tish star has not graced a cover for the Time 100 since 2017, when Rogue One ac­tor Riz Ahmed made the cut for the pi­o­neers cat­e­gory.
