My PERSONAL 100 'Favourite' Actors (Ultimate List)

Within the descriptions under each name below are the movies i've seen by that particular actor, listed top to bottom as best to worst, based on both movie enjoyment and the impact of the role....

On occasions notable shorts have been included within the film listing for certain actors. The notable shorts acceptance is determined through the filmic approach of the short, and whether that respective actor is 'in character', rather than shorts regarded as promo / corporate / commercial where they are purely playing themselves in retrospect.

For three of my top 4 actors I have included a memorable quote (guess the quote ;) ), along with a count of how many of their films I have seen out of the total number they have made to date.

..And don't be shy, check out my 100 favorite films, you won't regret it ;)
