    Romy Schneider

    Eberhard Feik

    Jan Josef Liefers

    Kurt Jürgens

    Jörg Plewa

    Aglaia Szyszkowitz

    Barbara Rudnik

    Klaus Kinski

    Ellen Schwiers

  • I will add:


    Michael Douglas

    Dustin Hoffman

    Humphrey Bogart

    Gene Hackman

    Vivien Leigh

    Emma Thompson

    Cate Blanchett

    Katharine Hepburn

    Bette Davis

  • I forgot one: Paul Kaye! As well as being the brilliant Dennis Pennis, he has been in loads of TV shows and the odd film, and ALWAYS makes it better. Look out for Blackball, 2000 acres of Sky, and A child's Christmas in Wales among many others.

    Certainly the 3 above. COT, you're right about the thread title but the opening post then asks for our favourite actors

    Bruno Ganz

    Absolutely. Downfall is mesmerising, as is Wings of Desire.


    I'll add Ruth Wilson and Sam Rockwell.


    I never originally liked Keira Knightley but in the last few films I've seen her in she's been brilliant.
