There are many reasons we all love watching British period dramas on television.
You have the gripping stories, the heartwarming romances, the stunning costumes, the lavish locations…
Oh, and – yeah, we’ll admit it – the gorgeous leading men.
But which male British period drama TV star is the sexiest of all time?
Earlier this year, we asked viewers to vote for their favourites from a shortlist of 25 actors.
Just missing out on the four top spots to reach the semi-final were Richard Armitage in North & South, Sean Bean in Sharpe, James Norton in Grantchester, Richard Madden in Game of Thrones, Cillian Murphy in Peaky Blinders, Alexander Dreymon in The Last Kingdom, and Tom Hughes in Victoria.
As our grand contest reaches the next stage, you can now vote for your favourite actor from the four semi-finalists in the list below.
Voting will close at midnight GMT at the end of 2nd August 2019 and we’ll announce which two actors are through to the final this summer!
