Daniel Craig in `Casino Royale` voted in top 100 best entertainers list
Harry Potter has been named the greatest 'entertainer' of the past ten years. The JK Rowling character was pitted against TV shows, films, songs and internet entertainment outlets like Facebook and YouTube.
US magazine Entertainment Weekly sifted through a myriad of entertaining options including books, music videos, fashion and trends to come up with the top 100 list.
It said: âHarry Potter lives in our memories more vividly than any other character weâve read or seen on screen this decade.
âItâs precisely because JK Rowling created him not as a mighty doer of epic deeds but as a regular kid; a teenager just trying to get by in a crazy, scary world. Who canât relate to that?â
Harry, who is played by Daniel Radcliffe in the film franchise, beat television series the Sopranos and YouTube to the top spot.
Sitting in 28th spot was Ricky Gervais's comic creation The Office, while Daniel Craig's stint in blue swimming trunks in the James Bond film Casino Royale came in at 71.
THE TOP TEN:
1. Harry Potter
2. The Sopranos
4. The Lord Of The Rings
6. Kanye West's album The College Dropout
8. The Daily Show
9. American Idol
10. Brokeback Mountain
