Top Ten Best Australian Actors
Come on! He is the Wolverine himself! You should see his movies like Logan, The Prisoners, Prestige, Les Miserables and so MANY MORE. He is a very talented actor and he puts a lot of effort in every movie or project he does. Other than acting and good looks, he is very disciplened, friendly, caring, nice and beloved! I think he is the sexiest among all not because of his looks only but what he is to other people and how he treats his fans and co-stars because being sexy is not just looks... he is the best!
That's what made me his biggest fan.
Hugh Jackman is a great all round actor and entertainer, well known for his role as super hero in Marvel movies, amongst many other acting roles and also his singing and dancing roles in musicals,( I.e. Les Miserables) and live theatre. Hugh along his wife is very active in their charities.
Heath ledger is so over rated I have only seen him in batman, and ya he was good but so what, he's no Jack Nicolson that's for sure, laugh out loud a Knights tale and broke back mountain, big deal! Now to Hugh Jackman, amazing actor! All his movies are blockbusters and he never dissapoints
I've always thought he was a great actor, but he never recieved much critical appraise until his most amazing performance as Jean Valjean in Les Mis which was an incredible film. He's also a such a nice guy so I couldn't be happier with him.
Um seriously people this is rly rly obvious! Heath was very possibly the best actor I ever had the pleasure to witness. I think about him everyday and miss him so much. He was great. I loved seeing his smile. It's such a shame that his brilliant young life was cut short. He had such a magnificent future ahead of him. We were all blessed just to see his performances... It's such a tragedy that he's gone. 28 is far too young to die.R.I.P. Heath... I love ya man
Won't go into detail about his best performance, but you can sum Heath Ledger with two words: Monster's Ball.
He was in that movie for five minutes and completely stole the entire film.
I agree. He is the most incredible actor the world has ever seen, a true artist, and no actor can ever replace him or his role as the Joker. He is and always will be missed everyday.
A true genius of an actor! His best performance was the joker in the dark night. He showed everyone that he can be 10 times better then the original joker. Well done!
Geoffrey Rush is one of the finest Aussie actors to hit the screen and his talent is displayed in films such as Pirates of the Carribean 3, Mary and Max and Bran Nue Dae
Well, actually he was born in New York and came to Australia when he was 12. Still claim him as an Australian. Great actor and director!
Mel Gibson played Mad Max who is Australian, but Mel Gibson is not Australian
37%? Spam voters? Eh, I love him anyway (not in a romantic way).
EDIT: What? 6%? I guess it was just a glitch...
He's so hot and a great actor.
He should be higher
Not only Gladiator, he killed it in The Insider (outacting Pacino), A Beautiful Mind, Mater and Commander, Cinderella Man, L. A Confidential. In fact I have never seen him doing bad acting.
"He is not Australian. please remove from the list." That's akin to saying Crowded House is an Australian band which it certainly isn't.
He brings another class of actor to the table I mean gladiator! top five films of all time. should be number 1.
Isn't this guy a kiwi? Still awesome anyway
How can you not love Guy Pearce? He's one of the most underrated actors out there, and I think he deserves more credibility. He's going to receive an oscar nomination one day, I just know it. Love, love, LOVE HIM!
Memento! He played his part so well in that movie!
He's Nero in star trek
Very talented and equally handsome, Mendelsohn is a unique and underrated actor who is of course, a PROUD AUSSIE!
No other Australian actor has the range this guy has. Any role, any kind of film, he'll play that character to perfection. I mean, V for Vendetta you never even see the guy but he's phenomenal
How isn't he top 5
Two words = hunger games
Must be the best living Australian actor, simply for the body of his great works since the 1970's. His acting over three decades has been honest, and believable. He has played many intricate and gut wrenching performances.
The others on your list, too a great degree mystify me:
Firstly HEATH LEDGER as number 1 is rediculous, he had 3 great movies, but he is dead, where is the rest of his body of work to come from. People should get over his passing. At best he might make it into my 100. HUGH JACKMAN, is a great actor but spends too much time in theatre to build up the body of work to be taken seroiusly against Bryan Brown. The rest on your to 10 list are discounted because they either have had very few top roles, remembered for 1 or 2 performances, method actors and put in the basic same acting every time, or just bloody lousey. The only exception is no 6 GEOFFREY RUSH, he would be placed second on my list.
No Australian actor is better than Crocodile Dundee! Period!
This is ridiculous Sam Worthington is a great actor he shouldn't be number 30! He should at least be top ten!
He was the Protagonist in clash of the titans!
