This site is awful and no one likes you, why did you bother?















































































































































































British actors by my definition are those born inside Great Britain and Northern Ireland (The United Kingdom). I have made a few exceptions (notably Peter O'Toole) because I like him and he's too important to leave out.

I felt it necessary to disclude some actors because (although born here) moved to somewhere else and really took no interest in British film or theatre from that point. For example Cary Grant.
