Make way for 10 more actors who will probably give singers a run for their money soon.

1. Theo James. Forget about his gorgeous full eyebrows and perfect bod for a while, and focus on his voice. Okay, Theo, we know you can sing well. You can give up shooting for the Divergent series now and focus on the singing career of your band Shere Khan. JK, we still want to see those abs!

2. Abigail Breslin. The Little Miss Sunshine star has grown up, not only as a fine actress, but as a singer too. Abigail starred in the movie Janie Jones, where she plays the daughter of a rock star, and is also part of the band CABB.

3. Keira Knightley. Who knew this beautiful lady can actually sing really well? Did you know that she stars as a budding musician in the musical, Begin Again, alongside Maroon 5's Adam Levine and Mark Ruffalo? Make sure you watch the movie now!


4. Emilia Clark. The Game of Thrones star appeared in the Broadway adaptation of Truman Capote's novel, Breakfast At Tiffany's in 2013, where she got raves for her portrayal of Holly Golightly.

5. Emily Blunt. Hear her sing this hauntingly beautiful song for the BBC TV drama, Gideon's Daughter, for which she won a Golden Globe award.

6. Jena Malone. Outside her amazing work as an actress (she appeared in movies like Pride and Prejudice, Sucker Punch, and Catching Fire ICYDK!), Jena performs songs with her band The Shoe.

7. Penn Badgley. For the movie Greetings From Tim Buckley, lonely boy took guitar and vocal lessons. But looks like he really has innate passion for music because he's now part of Brooklyn-based band Mother.

8. Robert Pattinson. Did you know that R-Patz knows how to play the guitar and the piano, and that he sang 2 songs for the soundtrack of Twilight? Now go over the movie's OST and listen to "Never Think" and "Let Me Sign."

9. Jamie Campbell Bower. According to rumors, Jamie was set to play Enjolras in the film adaptation of Victor Hugo's Les Miserables but turned it down (and the role went to the handsome Aaron Tveit). But even before this, he's already showed his singing voice in the musical Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, where he sang alongside A-list actors Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter.

10. Ellen Page. No, Ellen didn't use another person's singing voice in the closing scene of Juno where she performed "Anyone Else But You" with cutie Michael Cera.
