This is not a list of my favorite actors, nor is it a list of the best actors, but it's a list of actors that have the most talents, though talent is not all that makes a great actor, Johnny Depp has talent, but he's also kool, which makes a wonderful actor... some of the talents listed below do not have that special popularity, but yet show great talents in acting.
1. Anthony Hopkins
Hopkins has brought us some wonderful characters, the greatest of them being Dr Hannible Lecter, and a very talent provoking role in BBC's War and Peace along with many other great roles.
2. Ivana Baquero
An outstanding performance as the young Ofelia in Pan's Labyrinth brought fame to this young Spanish girl, she did really well in Pan's Labyrinth, and has shown talent in her earlier: The Christmas Tale.
3. Heath Ledger
Ledger's recent role as The Joker in Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight" brought great acclaim to him, and will stand out as one of the greatest villain roles for a long time to come: Excellent!
4. Hellena Bonham Carter
Bonham Carter has been in a number of classic movie roles and has shown her talents alongside the likes of Hopkins and Emma Thompson, her recnet role as Mrs. Lovett in Sweeney Todd was unbeatable, and she deserves acclaim for that.
5. Johnny Depp
Depp is a wonderful all-round actor and deserves his celebrity status. A large array of wonderful roles such as Edward Scissorhands and Captain Jack Sparrow. Depp remains one of the best actors of all time!
6. Christopher Lee
We all know that Christopher Lee is the scariest actor, and we like him for his roles as Saruman and as Count Douku
7. Ian Mckellen
Sir Ian McKellen is a real vetran in acting, excellent roles as Gandalf and Magneto in X-Men
8. Adrien Brody
Acted wonderfully in the Pianist and will ever be remembered for that role, excellent also in King Kong.
9. Charlie Chaplin
A very old actor but I thought right to mention him here as his choreographical movements have stunned people for almost a century, extremely funny in The Great Dictator
10. Emma Thompson
Another classic Brittish actress, done some marvelous roles.
