But among the Charli D’Amelios, Addison Raes and Bryce Halls of the TikTok universe are some incredible up-and-coming creators who are gaining popularity incredibly quickly. Here are some of the movers and shakers you need to start watching.

Luke Millington Drake

He only started his account in November and has already gained a quarter of a million followers. This actor from London is gaining notoriety for perfectly embodying the aura of British actress Kiera Knightley. In some sketches, he combines this with Hugh Grant, somehow picking up on every one of their mannerisms. Luke also posts parodies of posh London girls using a trio of characters called Tortellini, Mozzarella, and Bruschetta.
