Power Rankings: Our Favorite Actors and Actresses

The SAW Power Rankings is our weekly ranking of a certain movie-related topic. Please feel free to comment on our rankings and provide a list of your own in the comments below.

Continuing favorites month, we take a look at some of our favorite actors and actresses of all time. I know for me, I am drawn to performances in movies, and the actors I listed are ones where I love many of their performances. These are ones that I will pretty much watch whatever they are in or at least give it a try because of them. They are also the ones where I have seen most if not all of their filmography.

Some of us gave some of our favorite performances by the performer, and we would like to hear from you. Who are some of your favorite actors and actresses? What are some of your favorite performances? What draws you to these people?
