I tend to have favourite characters rather than favourite actors. I loved David Duchovny as Fox Mulder in The X-Files, and Richard Dean Anderson as Jack O'Neill in Stargate, but I don't follow them in other shows, so I can't say that they are my favourite.
At the moment I like Hiroyuki Sanada - he has a very interesting face (in that with little movement and expression he seems to show a lot of what is going on internally).
I love Jean Reno (no reason, just do) and think Christophe Waltz is an exceptional actor...
I'm old fashioned. Fell 'in love' with Mr Charlton Heston, when I saw him in 'El Cid' in 1962.
He'd been many times to Australia, & I was fortunate to meet him, & his lovely wife, Lydia.
He was a marvellous actor, with a high moral belief. He was a 9th generation American, hence his involvement with the NRA.
The majority of films in which he starred will never be made again, due to their being 'epics', way too expensive now.
His fans' at least, can view his films on DVD or via computer, to relive memories'.
