Where is Sean Connery?????
Christy Dolan (15 days ago)
Liam Neeson British? Hmm, funny, doesn't claim to be a Brit despite being from Belfast Fuck sake, the fact that his parents called him "LIAM" rather than "WILLIAM" (Irish for William) ought to fucking make his nationality pretty clear
Dhirendra Nath Biswas (15 days ago)

Mia Mancini (20 days ago)
I want to be an actress and if i could ever do anything close to Alan Rickman (ik i spelt it wrong so don't hate but pls do correct) with his snake portrale i would be so happy. Also i love I an McKellen. And a bunch of others. Idk if these r english or not😅😅😅 James Macavoy and Hugh Jackman. I can't spell😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭 And Serious Black obviously. Pls don't judge spelling. And ik Jackman is Australian i think. I rly don't know anything.😂😂 If u r still reading this. Well done. I would have given up. 1 like = one word spelled better for me. Jk i hate it when ppl do that. There just trying to get likes. Even though i always like them. Unless there overly stupid. ... I talk too much😂😂😭😭😭😭😭😭
Tanya M (20 days ago)
I like and respect all people in this list but 10 places are not enough. What can I say! A race fertile in genius. I just add a few talanted men here: Ralph Fiennes, John Hurt, Mark Rylance, Benedict Cumberbatch, Tim Roth, Jeremy Irons... I can spend all day writing names of incredible uk actors.
Aurora E. (21 days ago)
Ralph Fiennes wasn’t on the list and Liam Neeson and Colin Firth just honorable mentions... NOT LIKE!
no Peter Cushing or Boris Karloff, these guys were legendary and dont even an honorable mention
Maureen cole (24 days ago)

What about sir michael gambon? Richard Harris?
StrasbergProtégé (6 days ago)
Richard Harris was Irish
Flora Dora (25 days ago)
Alan Bates, Peter Sellers... A mere Top 10 is not enough for great British actors.
dadams6593 (25 days ago)
Sean Connery
Oybek Niyazov (29 days ago)
UK gave to the world many great actors! For me the best one is for sure Alan Rickman!
William Brown (29 days ago)
What about Sean Connery and Jeremy Irons?
ASHISH KINGER (30 days ago)
Why Alan Rickman left us!!!! would have loved to see him in Fantastic Beasts series again...and ofcourse he deserves the top position, 9 is such a shame
MouseWhite5 (1 month ago)
While I may or may not agree with your choices, I certainly disagree with the order you gave them. The same with your list of Top 10 UK Actresses --- seriously, Maggie Smith only 4?!?!
MouseWhite5 (1 month ago)
What about Sir Derek Jacobi?
D. C. Jacobs (1 month ago)
I would not have put Charlie Chaplin on there with all the others you did not mention.Richard Burton, Richard Harris, John Gielgud, James Mason, Robert Shaw, etc. He is in a different era and style.Known for a comedian a character in silent films very different than the others.
Mark Farmer (1 month ago)
All these are great, but you've missed out so many truly great actors.
Phanya (1 month ago)
Christopher Lee is not in the Top 10???
Diosa Palas (1 month ago)
Jeremy irons and Ralph Fiennes deserved at least a honorable mention
Patricia Henderson (1 month ago)
Sir Lawrence Olivier actually has an award named after him how the he is he not number one. That alone makes me me wonder how much research you did. Also Richard Burton and Sir John Geilgud are both missing.
Warrior Mermaid (1 month ago)
Alan Rickman and Gary Oldman with Anthony Hopkins should be in top 3!!!!! No Patrick Stewart?? Richard Burton, David Niven, Peter Sellers, David Tennant, Robert Carlyle, John Hurt, Jeremy Irons, Timothy Dalton, Tom Hardy, they dont even get mentioned?? This was a disappointing list!
TheFirzen001 (1 month ago)
wow, so many sirs in the list
Ngabou Ceesay (1 month ago)
Alec Guinness an honorable mention. Why
Aloysius Haywood (1 month ago)
Christopher Lee?
Leila Smith (1 month ago)
John Hurt and Sir Patrick Stewart need to be on this list. Also Alan Rickman needs to be higher than #9.
Vivien Williams (1 month ago)
A draw at number 1: Laurence Olivier and Daniel Day-Lewis. 'Nuff said.
Lolo G. (1 month ago)

Kevin Smarts (1 month ago)
I'm not suggesting it was easy but no Ben Kingsley?
Capella1951 (1 month ago)
It's an almost impossible task to rank the British actors and limit them just to the list of 10. British actors are the best ever, and you can count at least a few dozens of them at the top level.
Wayne Johnson (1 month ago)
Absolutely bogus list. There was NO MENTION (not even honorable) of possibly the greatest British actor of all time: Richard Burton.
Wanda Burns (1 month ago)
Sir Patrick Stewart should have been included I think.
Mark Jones (1 month ago)
Not a good list. Gary Oldman should be higher and no mention of Richard Burton, David Niven, Oliver Reed, Benedict Cumberbatch or David Tennant.
Paul Senesi (1 month ago)
Ian McKellen #8? Are you kidding me?
Anthony Giasi (1 month ago)
My favorite British comedy is the Blackadder series. Rowan Atkinson and Hugh Laurie are great!

Should have been the top 100...so many great British actors were missing from this list.
LivanaFaolan (1 month ago)
Alan Rickman should be in the top 5. I feel the same way about Gary Oldman! Shame on you, WatchMojo! And it's pretty lousy of you to leave out Sean Connery, Jeremy Irons and Tim Curry! I can't take your lists seriously!
Aidan R (1 month ago)

Richard Burton
Don Macarthur (1 month ago)
Alan Rickman & Gary Oldman should have been higher up this list. And the title is misleading, I don't recall the title stating it was only the best Male UK stars.
scarredman42 (1 month ago)
John Cleese, anybody? Any James Bond? This list is a joke anyways.
