The Top TenXW

1Orlando BloomOrlando Jonathan Blanchard Bloom is an English actor. After having his breakthrough as Legolas in The Lord of the Rings trilogy, he rose to fame by further appearing in epic fantasy, historical epic, and fantasy adventure films.

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 OldmanGary Leonard Oldman is an English actor, filmmaker, musician and author. Renowned for his "big" acting style, Oldman is one of the most celebrated thespians of his generation, with a diverse career encompassing theatre, film and television.

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 Contenders

11Colin FirthColin Andrew Firth is an English actor. Firth's films have grossed more than $3 billion from 42 releases worldwide.

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!

16Sir Alec Guinness
17Bill Nighy
18Tom HiddlestonThomas William Hiddleston is an English actor. He is best known for his role as Loki in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, appearing in Thor, The Avengers, and Thor: The Dark World.

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!

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

He's amazingly talented in my humble opinion.
