Top Ten Best English Actors


The Top TenXW

1Orlando 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. - Legolasgreenleaf

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

He's my best actor since I first watch him as Paris on the movie troy

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.

3Daniel 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.

4Anthony Hopkins

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

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.

8Ian McKellen

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

9Cary Grant

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

10Ralph Fiennes

I love his eyes

The Contenders

11Colin Firth

OMG SO FIT! WHY is he only 12?! He should be #1. Just watch him in Pride and Prejudice when he comes out of the lake! His shirt STICKS TO HIS CHEST! MMMM!

Should be rated in the top 3 (preferably #1). I have seen no other actor, British or American, that can top his performances.

Today's Cary Grant! Extremely handsome and so talented! Should be ranked higher!

12Christian Bale
13Peter O'Toole
14Simon Pegg
15Sir Alec Guinness
16Daniel Craig
17Bill Nighy
18Tom Hiddleston

Best actor ever sorry but he should be ahead of benedict cumberbatch, he gave an unforgettable performance as Loki

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!
