Surprised there aren't more votes for Jim Broadbent: he's featured in so many good productions, and has such an expressive face.

Bill Night is and always has been my favourite actor. His performances are always immensely watchable and really authentic to the character he is portraying. A true great.

Maggie Smith is my female choice. Her performances are always crisp and forthright. Another true great of the profession.

I've been a fan of Judy Dench for many years and think she is amazing.

Just from the list above it has to be the very desirable Meryl Streep.
