2023 has given us more amazing TV performances than we can count—and some of them were delivered by relative unknowns. From Queen Charlotte leads to The Last of Us star Bella Ramsey, we’re bringing you the best breakout stars who graced our TV screens throughout 2023.

Bella Ramsey (The Last of Us)

Bella Ramsey won us over as Lyanna Mormont in Game of Thrones, but the role of Ellie in The Last of Us proved to the world she could carry a whole show on her shoulders and scored her an Emmy nod.

Young Mazino (Beef)

Netflix has given us one of the best-limited series of the year with Beef, and we’re expecting great things from Young Mazino, who played Steven Yeun’s younger brother on the show.

India Amarteifio and Corey Mylchreest (Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story)

India Amarteifio and Corey Mylchreest made us fall in love with the young Queen Charlotte and King George III in this Bridgerton spin-off, and we’re planning to keep an eye on them in the future.

Camila Morrone (Daisy Jones & the Six)

The indie drama Mickey and the Bear put Camila Morrone on the map, but Daisy Jones & the Six marks her first major TV role – and she already has one Emmy nomination to show for it!

Walker Scobell, Leah Sava Jeffries, & Aryan Simhadri (Percy Jackson & the Olympians)

Disney+ wrapped up 2023 by finally sharing Percy Jackson and the Olympians with the world, and we’re predicting a bright future for its leading trio Walker Scobell, Leah Sava Jeffries, and Aryan Simhadri.
