Top Ten Best Actors In the Harry Potter Series
The Top Ten
A lot of the actors in Harry Potter are great, but I had to choose Snape because while yes I hate the character Rickman was able to portray him so smoothly and effortlessly that he practically was Snape. Not only that but J.K. Rowling herself picked him to be Snape and from critics reviews on the Harry Potter films I heard no complaints on Rickman's portrayal of Snape at all. - Anonymousxcxc
Come on! Is Alan Rickman! He was the perfect Snape, you hated him in year one and loved him in year seven... The delivery of his lines was always superb! - jdrobles
While reading the books, I imagined Severus exactly like Alan Rickman. He made a great Snape, and many agree!
Just remember... "Obbbvvioousslly." Alan Rickman knew how to work the lines just like Snape would've. Alan Rickman forever!V 22 Comments
I think almost all the harry potter characters where cast perfectly- especially bellatrix
Perfect portrayal, from the appearance, to the laugh, to the pure insanity. Perfect.
Amazing, plays her character the best
She is a good actorV 1 Comment
I can never even dream of anybody else as Harry Potter, not because of his looks, he owned his character, and he knew exactly how to behave so that he is the closest to his character. He didn't have the stature of an action hero, still with his expression and perfect dialogue throw, he was able to portray Harry perfectly. I am sure nobody else thinks that anyone else is suitable as Harry
I am basically in love with Daniel Radcliffe and I truly believe that he played his part wonderfully! It would not have been the same without him! - AMYLS
I think he is the most best actor in looks and acting. I just have a dream of meeting Daniel in New York. No body can beat him he is the best. I love you Daniel.

She played McGonagall so well!
No one can be as good as she is...

I thought Emma captured this character completely. She (a confident and attractive girl) played a girl not at ease with her looks, showing Hermiones strength and insecurities perfectly. She gave a character, who could have come off as super human and unapproachable a humanity and grace. She stole the show making Hermione the main character from the first movie to the last.
Emma is beautiful, not to mention a great actor. She delivered all lines perfectly, encapsulated the essence of Hermione's cleverness and portrayed her fabulously
Wow! Best actors then, Hermione is nominated! Seriously, How cool was that?
She is the best!V 13 Comments
How he is this low it is absurd he deserves 2nd spot in my opinion as even though he is one of the better actors of set by reputation he still pulls it out of the bag and lives up to his reputation and pulls of a spine chilling and moving performance as one of the best movie villains and villain performances EVER!
Pretty much one of the only "great" actors among the troupe. They all did a fantastic job, but you can't put Fiennes this low. He and Rickman were probably the best actors on Harry Potter
One of the best villians I've seen in quite some time. - bgunsgu
He should be in no. 2 I mean he had a very good actingV 3 Comments
Did you notice he hardly had any lines in the sixth film? Yet he changed everyone's perception of Draco just with his expressions and his mannerisms. Some of the best acting is wordless; Tom owned his role.
Okay - Alan Rickman, Helena Bonham Carter, and Maggie Smith are all extremely talented. But Tom Felton is definitely the most talented child actor in the films.
He is a huge inspiration to so many child actors. He has gone a long way from being just the pompous brat in their first year.
Should be the third bestV 7 Comments
I love rupert grint he is such a great actor he is the best and funniest ron and so funny in real life. In most of his other roles he has to put on many different accents
Rupert is the best actor among the Golden Trio and he is a fantastic Starlight Ambassador. People underrates him because he doesn't want fame
Best actor in the trio. Should be above Dan and Emma on this list
WHY WHY WHY ON THE EARTH RON IS SO SO UNDERRATED? JUST BECAUSE HE WASN'T HANDSOME AS MALFOY, OR BRAVE AS HARRY? WHY DOESN'T PEOPLE REALIZE THAT THE WHOLE SERIES WONT HAVE BEEN SO FUNNY IF RON WASN'T THERE ? AND I DON'T THINK ANYBODY ELSE IS SO SUITABLE FOR THIS PARTICULAR ROLE, RUPERT WAS HUMEROUS AND AMAZING THROUGHOUT THE FRANCHISEV 1 Comment
Luna was my favorite character and I love how calm and mysterious Evanna Lynch portrayed her as!
What else can you say she is the best luna no one else could suit the role better
What a beautiful and mysterious voice...
How is she only 11th?V 3 Comments
Very good actor also got a good voice
I think Richard Harris seemed exactly like Albus Dumbledore and showed the Hogwarts heads compassion, bravery and overall goodness in the Harry Potter films
He was such a sweet man. I'm so sorry he died. :-(
I kinda feel bad that Jason Isaacs is underrated in terms of praise for the Harry Potter franchise. He did a good job and when I looked him up he sounded like a pretty cool dude. If I hadn't voted for Alan Rickman my vote would've either gone to Maggie Smith or him. - Anonymousxcxc
Jason Isaacs is a phenomenal actor, and he seriously was perfect for this role - it's only fair that Draco Malfoy, back when he was just an annoying little villain, was raised by Captain Hook!
