Bodyguard star Richard Madden has been named as one of the world's most influential people alongside Liverpool striker Mo Salah, Emilia Clarke and Killing Eve's Sandra Oh.
Madden 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.
The British actor 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.

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.
Northern Irish director Sir Kenneth Branagh, who worked with Madden on blockbuster Cinderella and play Romeo & Juliet, told Time: 'Richard can certainly unleash wildness and ruthlessness when the role requires a charisma of danger.
'In Bodyguard, Richard's intelligence and physicality worked at perfect pitch alongside his rigorous self-discipline. It paid off to frightening and moving effect.'
Killing Eve's Sandra Oh (in LA on April 1) was also featured with singer Ariana Grande (seen on December 6)
Game Of Thrones star Emilia Clarke was featured in the artists category, with Dame Emma Thompson calling her a 'powerhouse to watch and an ally to die for', alongside pop star Ariana Grande and painter David Hockney.
Mo Salah's profile was written by comedian John Oliver, who called him 'one of the best footballers in the world'.
