There is a long list of Shakespearean actors, including Sean Bean, Kenneth Branagh, Patrick Stewart, David Tennant, and more. Who do you think is the best?

That's all I can think of at the moment! Have seen several of those above, on stage! Fabulous thrill!
I am probably biased because of my love of Star Trek, but my favourite actor who is a member of the Royal Shakespeare Society, is Sir Patrick Stewart.
I love how Kenneth Branagh has bought Shakespeare to the mainstream with his films like Hamlet and Much Ado about Nothing. He certainly is a very accessible Shakespearean actor.
I'm with Sarah on this one. I'm a big fan of Kenneth Branagh. And it's not just Shakespeare that he is good in.

Oh! Vee, do you speak of 'Wallander'?
I prefer KB's version, as don't have to worry trying to read the subtitles! Lol!

I have not heard of Wallander, donjo. I quite liked him in Shackleton, though I cannot say I watched the entire thing. I also enjoyed him in Valkyrie. May have to check out this Wallander you speak of.

I love Sean Bean alot.
Olivier
I enjoyed watching Al Pacino as "Shylock" in Merchant of Venice recently. Not a huge Shakespeare fan though.
