With a few exceptions, Daniel Radcliffe and Anthony Hopkins and Emma Thompson to name a few, British actors rarely get the national recognition they deserve. Is there a particular British actor that has touched your heart? Which character(s) made you really love them as an actor? Are they your favourite British actor? If not, who is?

Daniel Radcliffe

I've got a few favourites, including Julie Walters and Maggie Smith.
There are some great talents from Britain. My favourites include Colin Firth (especially as Mr Darcy), and also Maggie Smith (as suggested by Bryony). The calibre of some British movie stars is extremely high. Judi Dench and Kenneth Branagh are also noteworthy.
I have to say Stephen Fry, I just think he's amazing. I love his wit, I love his acting. I even love his voice when he reads audiobooks.
