The Top Ten

1 Ewan McGregor Ewan McGregor Ewan Gordon McGregor is a Scottish actor. His first professional role was in 1993, when he won a leading role in the Channel 4 series Lipstick on Your Collar.

Visible happiness

Hello there. - Cyri

Definitely the best apart of the Prequels.

Keep him at No. 1 so he can keep the high ground.

2 Harrison Ford Harrison Ford Harrison Ford is an American actor and film producer. He gained worldwide fame for his starring roles as Han Solo in the original Star Wars epic space opera trilogy and the title character of the Indiana Jones film series.

How is Harrison Ford beneath Ewan McGregor? Han Solo was in every way better than Obi Wan in terms of character portrayal. I think old Obi Wan in episode 4 was better than prequel Kenobi

So confident, such a scoundrel

EWAN MCGREGOR? You've got to be kidding me. Harrison Ford is a legend and obviously the best Star Wars actor. McGregor was pretty bad... not terrible, but definitely not great.

Come on, this is an obvious first place.

3 Mark Hamill Mark Hamill Mark Richard Hamill is an American actor and voice actor. He is best known for his portrayal of Luke Skywalker in the original Star Wars trilogy – Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi and his portrayal of the Joker in Batman: the Animated Series.

This man is the heart and soul of Star Wars.

Definitely deserves to be number two, behind Harrison Ford. Mark does a great job playing Luke Skywalker in the time frame he was in. Why do you think most people like the prequels over the sequels.

Not aging so well

Best performance in The Last Jedi by far.

9 Hayden Christensen Hayden Christensen Hayden Christensen is a Canadian-American actor and producer. He began his career on Canadian television at the age of 13, then diversified into American television in the late 1990s. ...read more.

Everyone says "oh he is such a bad actor blah blah" but you have to give him credit. He made a great Anakin and tried his best.

The Scenes when he doesn't open his mouth are Stunning. (The ones when he talks, it might have been the directors fault). He makes a great Unmasked Darth Vader.

Obviously wasn't too great in Episode II, but managed to reflect Anakin's conflict and turn to the dark side really well in Revenger of the Sith.

No, bad actor. Made Annie look super bad and poorly made character

10 Liam Neeson Liam Neeson Liam John Neeson, OBE is an actor from Northern Ireland. In 1976, he joined the Lyric Players' Theatre in Belfast for two years. He then acted in the Arthurian film, Excalibur.
