Very underrated actor! cannot forget Schindler's List and his recent Taken! Truly entertaining to watch! - curlyqgirly

Vote for him... or he WILL find you.

Liam Neeson is amazing.

Liam Neeson needs some serious recognition. He's such an epic person. Such an epic actor. Taken is epic. Schindlers List Eis epic. Batman is epic. This guy is just epic. Epic

3 Pierce Brosnan Pierce Brosnan Pierce Brendan Brosnan is an Irish actor and film producer who after leaving comprehensive school at age 16, began training in commercial illustration.
4 Colin Farrell Colin Farrell
5 Cillian Murphy Cillian Murphy Cillian Murphy is an Irish actor of stage and screen. Since making his debut in his home country in the late 1990s, Murphy has also become a presence in British and American cinemas noted by critics for his performances in a wide range of roles.

Don't even get me started. He's a brilliant, underrated actor. He can disappear into a role and wow you. A transvestite, split personality, zombie killer, psychotic doctor, terrorist (Red Eye), a scientist, a film-noir buff, an illusionist or whatever in Red Lights. I also love that he isn't HOLLYWOOD! You don't see scandals about him in the news and he keeps his personal life very separate. When asked about his family, he ignores and doesn't say a damn thing. He plays truly, dynamic characters and no one else could play them except for him.

I love Cillian Murphy, 28 days later, sunshine, batman begins, their all great movies. I love it how he goes for the more complicated roles and not the really simple roles. He has stared in a lot of American films but manages to maintain his Irish accent because I loved that kind of accent.

He's so underrated! One of my favorites

I love you

6 Gabriel Byrne
7 Stephen Rea

I was torn apart between Byrne and Rea, because I adore both. They have that certain something, I don't know what it is. Obviously being Spanish I find their Irishness incredibly atracctive, but there's something more.

They're both extraordinary actors, they're acting monsters. But this time I'm going to give my point to Stephen because I think he is less known and he deserves better. - Esteluki
