Who are the most famous redheads today? 

For reasons we can't even begin to fathom, redheads have gotten a bad rap throughout history. All sorts of myths and stereotypes, ranging from redheads not feeling pain to redheads not having souls, have emerged. 

Thankfully, with movements such as redhead festivals, National Love Your Red Hair Day, and even a glossy magazine dedicated to all things ginger, there's never been a cooler time to display the MC1R gene. 

While there are many famous redheads from Queen Elizabeth to Maureen O'Hara, there are plenty of awesome gingers today who leave us wishing we could be as cool as they are. Here are just a few! 

Harry Windsor, Duke of Sussex

Harry and Meghan Markle, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

One of the most talked about ginger in the world, following the marriage of Prince Harry to American actress Meghan Markle.  The birth of their son Archie and their daughter Lilibet. Their big move to the United States and the fact that he's now the Royal formally known as Prince. Just call him "Harry", like Cher!

Yep! This confirms it. There appears to be a correlation between being a redhead and having some serious acting chops.

Michael Fassbender

Michael Fassbender is a ginger but is often asked to dye his hair for roles. What a pity! He explains in the interview clip above.

Sandy-haired domination extends to the musical world, too! It's still practically impossible to listen to "Hello" without getting teary.

Perhaps the only man here who could rival Prince Harry for the most famous ginger of all today! We did love his Galway Girl video - actually set in Galway and starring Saoirse Ronan

Are there any other famous redheads you think should be included on this list?
