QUESTION: Top 5 actors?
ANSWER: A bunch of intertwining actors who have starred in Harry Potter, Sweeny Todd, The Dark Knight, and Inception! Read on…
5. Johnny Depp
Pirates of the Caribbean, Alice in Wonderland, Edward Scissorhands, Sweeny Todd
Johnny Depp is one of those well-rounded actors who can take on anything. He can be funny, crazy, serious, emotional, or just plain beautiful. I love him in Pirates of the Caribbean, Edward Scissorhands, Alice in Wonderland, and pretty much anything he does, and while I’ve not heard good things about one of his latest, Mortdecai, I’m still very keen to
4. Alan Rickman
Harry Potter, Sweeny Todd, Love Actually
Alan Rickman is another one who holds a special place in my heart, because of Harry Potter of course. His portrayal of Severus Snape is heart-wrenching and perfect, and I
3. Michael Caine
The Dark Knight, The Italian Job, Inception
Michael Caine is Michael Caine! I haven’t actually seen too many of his films, but he makes the list because he means a lot to me as Alfred in the Dark Knight trilogy.
2. Leonardo DiCaprio
Titanic, Shutter Island, Inception, The Revenant
I’ve probably seen more of Leonardo DiCaprio’s films out of all the actors on this list. Most recently, it was The Revenant, which blew my mind. It’s mostly due to the cinematography, but Leo was truly exceptional in his role as, well, a father. It’s difficult to find a role in which he isn’t exceptional. He does seem to have this thing with his characters seeing their wives in their heads a lot of the time though…
1. Gary Oldman
The Dark Knight, Harry Potter, Léon
When writing this list I thought to myself ‘at least I’ve got one person from Harry Potter‘, and I’ve only just now remembered that Gary Oldman played the role of one of my favourite characters in HP, Sirius Black. I do this a lot with Gary Oldman – forget that he’s in things – which is why I think I love him. He completely becomes someone else and I forget that it is him portraying a character.
Special mention: Heath Ledger’s Joker
I felt I had to mention Heath Ledger’s portrayal of the Joker. While I don’t feel I can say he is one of my top 5 actors, Ledger’s performance in The Dark Knight is my favourite acting from anyone ever.
Special mention… again: Jeff Goldblum
Jeff Goldblum is here because my best friend is pretty much obsessed with him. Yeah there’s no pretty much about it, she is obsessed. But I also do love him in Jurassic Park!
Let me know who your favourite actor is! I’d also love to know which films you enjoyed my top 5 actors in 🙂
