This is a list of actors whom I consider to be underrated, this is just my opinion but I hope someone will agree.

1. Frances Fisher

Frances Fisher began by apprenticing at the Barter Theatre in Abingdon, Virginia. She spent 14 years based in New York City, playing leads in over 30 productions of plays by such noted writers as John Arden, Noël Coward, Emily Mann, Joe Orton, Sam Shepard, William Shakespeare, Jean Claude Van ...

I just think that she is one of the great actresses out there. Hopefully she will get some recognition one day

2. Alan Rickman

Alan had an older brother David, a younger brother Michael and a younger sister Sheila. When Alan was 8 years ...

Maybe not really underrated, but come on, I think that he is amazing...he should be given more chances!

3. Gary Oldman

Actor | Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy

Gary Oldman is a talented English movie star and character actor, renowned for his "big" acting style. One of the most celebrated thespians of his generation, with a diverse career encompassing theatre, film and television, he is known for his roles as Sid Vicious in Sid and Nancy (1986), Drexl in ...

Same as Rickman, they should get more stuff. Even though Oldman gets more films than Rickman

4. Imelda Staunton

She is an actress, known for Pride (2014), Shakespeare in Love (1998) and Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2007). She has been married to Jim Carter since October 1983. ...

She is great in everything she does, but apart from Vera Drake and some of the Potter films we haven't had the chance to watch her much.

5. Scott Glenn

Scott Glenn was born January 26, 1941, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, to Elizabeth and Theodore Glenn, a salesman. As he grew up in Appalachia, his health was poor; he was bedridden for a year and doctors predicted he would limp for the rest of his life. During long periods of illness, Glenn was ...

6. Robert Sean Leonard

Actor | Dead Poets Society

One actor who has deserved much acknowledgment and fame and has had to do without it on a number of occasions is Robert Sean Leonard, known by most as Dr. James Wilson on House M.D. (2004). But his career has spanned a number of classic films, alongside such greats as Daniel Day-Lewis, Christian ...

He is a terrific actor that should be acknowledged not only for playing Wilson.

7. Victor Garber

Actor | Alias

Victor Garber has been in some of the most memorable projects of the past four decades. Victor is currently appearing in The Slap, The Flash, Motive and Web Therapy. He will soon star in Greg Berlanti's new Untitled DC Comics Superhero series for Warner Bros/CW. He has shared in two Screen Actors ...

Great actor, he is usually in movies, but I hope he could get some leading roles.

Every time I see her on TV or in a film I keep thinking, why isn't this woman given more attention?

9. Gemma Jones

10. Rosario Dawson

Actress | Rent

This stunning and resourceful actress has been primarily a film player thus far. Only recently has she been opening herself up more to doing television (the series Gemini Division (2008), which she executive-produced), and animated voice-overs. Dawson's powerhouse talent stands out the most in edgy...

Haven't seen her much, but for what I've seen, I really like her
