Top Ten Best Actors on TV
The Top Ten
Jensen Ackles is an incredibly talented, outstanding actor! He conveys drama as brilliant as comedy or romance, and he doesn't even need dialogue to share his character's emotions with the audience; it's all in his eyes and facial expressions. Jensen pours his heart and soul into his characters, raising them from their fictional existence and bringing them to life with a breathtaking intensity. He gives them depth and nuances, authenticity and dignity and introduces them to the viewer as persons you can easily relate to, laugh, cry and feel with; to an extent where you completely forget they're not real. This effect is especially obvious with Dean Winchester on Supernatural; Jensen's outstanding portrayal of this complex character over the last almost 9 years is deserving of every television award out in the industry. Aside from his impeccable acting skills, Jensen Ackles is an adorable, charming, humble and down-to-earth guy who cares so much not only for his family and friends but ...more - angiewinchester
Jensen Ackles is an amazing talent. He has grown so much through the years and currently just blows away his role, using his entire body to portray the character and make every situation - and there are some, let's say credulity straining ones - believable. He has strong presence, a wonderful ability to emote, and he makes every shot he is in better and more layered. To think once upon a time he was another pretty face - not that he lost his looks. He's grown into a very handsome man. Maybe it was the attention to detail he learned directing that helped him become a better actor. It's hard to watch so many movies with so-so actors when you know, Jensen Ackles would have been perfect for the part.
Powerful and driven, Jensen Ackles makes every role come to life, any character believable, and strange plot twist plausible. He makes Dean Winchester as fresh a character in Season 8 as he was in Supernatural Season 1. Dean is a better character because of Jensen Ackles' ability - no matter how cheesy his lines or how trite Dean's story, Ackles doesn't play him as a stereotype. With incredible skill at taking little in lines and making the audience feel his character's emotions, Ackles steals every scene unintentionally. It helps that he has matured from a pretty boy to a drop-dead gorgeous man.
Jensen Ackles is an outstanding actor, one of the only actors to make me cry. He is talented and conveys his characters emotions in a brilliant way. His whole facial expression conveys the emotions of his character so well and not to mention he is hot as hell!
Jared Padalecki is my favourite actor. He can kill the scene with amazing performances! I love him because, come on just look at him, his eyes say everything is needed. He's underrated but I can vouch that he's amazing (I always cry when I watch him play a character on T.V., don't tell anyone) he deserves better from anyone. I swear for someone who has suffered that much (he's got depression) who has been insult in that way, he's too caring and sweet. He's a lil bean who just deserves to be loved as a person and as an actor. Akf!
He's THE BEST ACTOR I have ever seen on T.V.. I can see his love and dedication to his Sam Winchester character in every single episode and he's truly SUPERNATURAL!
The way Jared connects with the characters he plays is phenomenal- particularly the character of Sam Winchester (and all the versions of him). He uses the struggles and pain this character goes through and ties it together with his fans', along with his, own struggles and pain and creates a community where everyone can learn to cope and always keep fighting. Jared Padalecki is a good actor, and most importantly he is a good man.
Jared is a sweet man whose battles with depression have empowered many a Supernatural fan. This man is definitely what you'd call a friendly giant.
Matt leblanc is not that great of an actor. He's not funny either. I voted for jensen cause he's the better actor by far!
Matt LeBlanc is very overrated.
Makes me laugh every time
Jensen Ackles is very overrated
Incredibly underrated person. His talent for acting is so raw and flawless. Character development is so evident through his work, and the multiple personalities he has portrayed on Supernatural are so different from one another despite carrying the same face and clothes. Although loved and looked up to by many, he has managed to remain incredibly grounded and never forgotten his own past. He gives back in all and any ways he can and strongly encourages others to do the same. Truly someone worth carrying the title of Role Model
He really commits to his role as Castiel even altering his voice to fit the character better. You would never guess he's such a sweet and quirky guy in real life because he plays such a straight faced character on the show. I can't see anyone else playing the part half as well as he does. - NerdBunny
Just came here to tell everyone how underrated Misha is. It isn't easy playing someone that conveys most of their emotions through stares.
Misha Collins is a talented, honestly generous, and strongly unique man. Honestly, I've never laughed harder than when I'm watching videos of him doing what Misha does. He also started up GISHWHES, which is a great contest that brings out the crazy and benevolent in everybody involved.
The man can act, he plays his character perfectly and not to mention a flawless American accent.
Hugh is the best of the small screen who is equally great doing comedy and drama in just one Episode.
Just need to Check the episode Euphoria to see what I mean - Szonana
David Duchovny is the most talented actor in the world.
David has created the most wonderful and iconic characters in the world:Hank Moody and Fox Mulder.
He is effortless & yet the best simply my icon
Yes x flies is my favorite
Roy Dupuis is amazing actor. He can play different roles. I hope that he will create a lot of characters again and again.
Most likely one of the best actor in T.V. history love him in malcom in the middle and breaking bad he should be definitely higher on the list if not number one!
Seriously, no vote for Cranston... Have you seen Breaking Bad? #1, Aaron Paul should make the list as well
The very best actor in television land, hands down. Everyone else is vying for second place...
Walter White and the dad from Malcolm in the Middle. Guy has talent. - 445956
An outstanding actor. Besides he's wild side.. He can act in an amazing way with any personality or character.
He is the best..
Charlie is so funny in every simple way. and also has great timing.. wish he'd continue on the show...
The way he acts as Sherlock is spot on! He plays him so perfectly that I sometimes forget he's a different person from his character. He's just so amazingly skilled, committed, and has a wide acting range. - NerdBunny
Benedict Cumberbatch (besides being gorgeous and talented) is a goofball at heart, or at least off-screen. His portrayal of characters such as Sherlock Holmes and Khan in Star Trek blow me away.
Cute guy, amazing actor, and don't even get me started on the hair.
I had to click someone... Leblanc is not even in my top 100, nor are most of these people. THE BEST T.V. aCTOR IS NONE OTHER THAN MAURICE BENARD... Whether you like his show or not! : )
Mark Sheppard is one of the greatest actors around. Not only has he been in popular shows, he's been in the greatest of our times. His style, personality and how passionately he works make him the best around. He is so underrated and that needs to change.
He works as much as he does for a reason! The man is talented!
The mouthy spinster Malcom Tucker in The Thiock of It, Capaldi was recently announced as the new Doctor Who
He was phoenominal! Especially in Heaven Sent; really deserved a Bafta/Emmy.
Love how all her characters always have a good chemistry with other characters. She is one of the main reasons why House MD was one of the best T.V. shows Cameron was the only character who actually connected very well with all the others
He should be in top 3
At least hez an outstanding actor
Alwayz makes me laugh
Rainn Wilson literally became Dwight the way no one else could
hmmm, not a whole lot of competition here - FATRESS
Amazing in Prison Break!
Can't imagine anyone nailing the role barney stinson in How I Met Your Mother like he does
One word - LEGEND
Many women would say that his Sidney Chambers was the only time a vicar was hot.
The Phwoar the Peace man himself.
A russian prince in War and Peace, a psychopath in Happy Valley, a vicar in Grantchester and now a banker in McMafia. Is there anything James Norton can't do?
He has won 2 straight emmys for best lead actor in a comedy series. - Bman23
Wait! Matt Le Blanc in no. 2 and Jim in 34?!?!
He is amazing in PRISON BREAK!
Great actor with piercing eyes
Seriously, Ian is on NO.34.. Give me a break dude.. He is a great actor.. He acts with his eyes.. The way he plays the role of Damon Salvatore in The Vampire Diaries, its just amazing.. Vote for him guys because he deserves it..
love those dimples, I also like Eric Dane
If you're watching The Walking Dead, you'll be amazed on how he acts. With his acting, you'll realize you were just attached to the zombie world without noticing it earlier.
COOL GUY - philbeech13
He's funny, cute and can really fit with the characteristics of whoever he is playing. My all time favourite actor x
Alex has gone through a lot of changes over the years. Takes skill to be versatile.
Mark Harmon is one of the most experienced actors in the business and he is also a well birthed action actor who is able to be also quite comidic
