Happy birthday, Taurus!

We’re almost at the halfway mark of 2023 and that means it’s time to celebrate a zodiac sign that occupies that time, Taurus. From the end of April to mid-May, Taurus season is in full effect with a bull being its symbol and aligns with other Earth signs like Virgo and Capricorn. Popternative’s founder and host Petey Beats also celebrates his birthday during this time.

Much like Earth signs, Taurus are detail-oriented, cultivated, grounded, practical, and down-to-earth people who are often deemed sweet, artistic, and charismatic individuals. On the other hand, Taurus can be hard-headed, dependent, self-indulgent, materialistic, and possessive.

Taurus season runs from April 20 through May 20, and many of your favorite celebrities fall in that time frame. Below are 12 movies or TV shows you can stream starring Taurus actors.
