The category was introduced in 2010, at the 16th Star Awards ceremony; Nat Ho received the award for his role in The Dream Catchers and it is given in honour of an actor (not necessary to be contracted under Mediacorp) who portrayed a drama series or variety character that is deemed as the most popular among the television audience. Prior to 2012, the nominees were determined by a team of judges employed by Mediacorp. The rule was removed in 2012 to allow the public to determine the nominees entirely via online voting. Winners are also selected by a majority vote from the public via online voting as well.

Since its inception, the award was given to four actors. Xu Bin is the most recent and final winner in this category for his role in You Can Be an Angel Too. Elvin Ng is the only actor to win in this category thrice, surpassing Xu who has two wins. In addition, Ng has been nominated on five occasions, more than any other actor. Aloysius Pang and Romeo Tan hold the record for the most nominations without a win, with four.

The award was discontinued from 2017, along with the Favourite Female Character and Favourite Onscreen Couple (Drama) awards.
