Not according to the definition of the word. You can be well known in a single country and its neighbours, like this gentleman or known worldwide, like Michael Jackson.

Oliver Pocher has fame in Germany and neighbouring countries for example, but hardly anyone know him here.

Redefining word meanings now, huh Cosmo?

Actually famous means known by many people, these 2 actors were known by many people hence famous. There are musicians in the US only known in the US that would be classified as famous because a few million people know them, they make enough money to constitute a level of fame.
Stop being obtuse

You amateurs are too reliant on “dictionaries“ (pah!) for your definitions. Back in the days when men were men we were trained to make up our own definitions from scratch.

Which means Oliver Pocher is not famous...

If you in SA and don't know who Connie Ferguson is, you probably live under a rock.

Get out of your comfort zone and start asking that question. You may see that you're the one under a rock. Soweto celebs aren't known throughout the country.
