The Top Ten

Orlando Bloom
He had been in the most amazing movies: Lord Of The Rings and The Hobbit. And he make Legolas more amazing than ever. He is the best.


He's been in the best movies. The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit and the Pirates of the Caribbean.

2Alan Rickman
He's brilliant and can capture the personality of a character 30 years younger than him! He's stared in many great movies and portrays the cold (and broken ;)) Severus Snape in Harry Potter excellently.
He overshadowed the main character and main antagonist in Harry Potter with deep, intriguing and brilliant acting skill, he gave a secondary character new life.
Yes. He goes into an eternally heartbroken character, who lost the love of his life to a monster. Great actor.
[Newest]All I can say is SNAPE!

3Anthony Hopkins
Great actor, but he shouldn't be on the list as he is Welsh, not English.

4Daniel Day-Lewis
I love Daniel Day-Lewis, Not only is he a great actor, but he is also very handsome. I loved him in Nine.

5Michael Caine
The best actor by far! Capable of showing emotions and deliver lines better than any other actor! Plus, one of the most versatile actors ever and a wonderful voice!

6Gary Oldman
Orlando bloom, how can he beat Gary Oldman, Ralph Fiennes, Ian Mckellen, Anthony Hopkins, Michael Caine, Daniel Day-Lewis, Ben Kingsley.
Gary Oldman is the BEST living actor of our days. Watch him in "Tinker, Taylor, Soldier, Spy", he really deserves an Oscar.
The English version of Jack Nicholson
[Newest]The Best, for ever and ever...

7Ian McKellen
A great English actor. Awesome in 'Lord of the Rings'.

8Cary Grant
I think Cary Grant should have been #1! He defines suave & debonair! Every upstart actor wanted to be Cary Grant, for sure!

10Ralph Fiennes
I love his eyes

The Contenders

11Christian Bale

14Sir Alec Guinness

15Bill Nighy

16Daniel Craig

How could everyone forget about Tom Hiddleston?! The totally Hot villian from the avengers! In my opinion he's the best actor ever! I think he's Epically awesome in every way possible! I've seen nearly all his movies and loved his character in every single one!
