Mathematics Helps Predict Success of Actors

Science Innovations

Mathematics can be effective in predicting the success of actors, according to a study done by Queen Mary University of London.

The finding was based on analysis of the career progression of 1,512,472 male actors and 869,029 female actors from 1888 to 2016 taken sourced from Internet Movie Database (IMDb). It revealed that there is huge gender bias and raises questions about the fairness in the industry. Most actors attain the peak of their career in the first year of their appearance and rich-get-richer phenomenon is prevalent in the industry. The actor's success if dependent not only on ability but circumstance and it is known as the 'network' effect.


The researchers found that there are 'hot' and 'cold' streaks in an actor's career. Female actors are less likely to emerge from a cold streak compared to a male actor. The researchers expect their 'science of success' to be useful for the film industry. The new model shows how an artiste can improve his or her chances of success.
