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
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.
Just watch an episode of something he's been in. Not just Supernatural, try Dark Angel or Dawson's Creek or Smallville. I guarantee you, in just that one episode alone, Jensen would have conveyed multiple emotions though his voice, body language, facial expressions, and his eyes. This man has the most expressive eyes I've ever seen. He can take a cocky, seemingly shallow character, and give them such amazing depth; like with Alec McDowell on the. I'm totally avoiding the obvious here, but look at what he's done with Dean Winchester. Dean is one of my all time favorite characters, not just for his looks (and let's be real, Jensen is ungodly beautiful), but because Jensen makes me feel everything Dean is feeling. Anyone watching the show for the first time would think that Dean is a cocky, womanizing grunt. But when you get more into it, you realize how wonderfully complex and layered he really is. Yes, that is in part because of the writers, but more so because of Jensen, who has taken ...more
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!
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.
He is just perfect, he's like the sun and he saved my life. He deserves better from the show (spn) and fans! Always keep fighting Jay, and always bring that smile
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!
Jensen Ackles is very overrated
Matt LeBlanc is very overrated.
Makes me laugh every time
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
Just came here to tell everyone how underrated Misha is. It isn't easy playing someone that conveys most of their emotions through stares.
Cute guy, amazing actor, and don't even get me started on the hair.
Roy Dupuis is amazing actor. He can play different roles. I hope that he will create a lot of characters again and again.
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
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!
Best actor all around. His comedy in Malcolm in T.V. middle and his seriousness in breaking bad. Best actor ever.
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...
He was phoenominal! Especially in Heaven Sent; really deserved a Bafta/Emmy.
The mouthy spinster Malcom Tucker in The Thiock of It, Capaldi was recently announced as the new Doctor Who
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!
An outstanding actor. Besides he's wild side.. He can act in an amazing way with any personality or character.
Charlie is so funny in every simple way. and also has great timing.. wish he'd continue on the show...
he is the best one on two and a half men
He is the best..
He should be in top 3
At least hez an outstanding actor
Alwayz makes me laugh
hmmm, not a whole lot of competition here
Can't imagine anyone nailing the role barney stinson in How I Met Your Mother like he does
barney I love him
Rainn Wilson literally became Dwight the way no one else could
